    You cant login? Do you have any other information? Because by just reading your post all i can think of is your putting in wrong details (caps, numbers etc)

    If your forum is new and empty then just reinstall.

    You cannot simply alter the password for your account in the database, because the password is hashed and there are a lot of validations.
    What you can do is register a new account on your own forum with the password let's say "testpass123", it will get hashed, then you can copy it to your account in the database and voila, now you can login with that password and change it afterwards!
