Recover or change admin password

Is it possible to recover or change the admin password? I look through the existing threads and noticed some discussions regarding setting passwords such as editing user info in mantis_user_table (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/214 ... hout-email)

However, my understanding is that we need mantis admin password to login to the phpMyAdmin.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

You do not need the mantis admin password, but the MySQL root or database password.
The database password can be found in file config/config_inc.php

Thank you! I was able to use the database password to change the Mantis Admin credentials.

A follow up question: is there a way to recover the MySQL root password as well?
