Yes, I made that mistake. It was stupid. Period.
Logically, I would use the ‘send lost password’ function to retrieve the password from my mail but my darned server (that I did not pay sen for) was slow to comprehend such a command. So I resorted to going to the source: PHPMyAdmin.
Should this stupid mistake ever happen to any of you, which I doubt it wil, you can see the full detail instructions here.
