I recently installed silverstripe on one of my web servers and intend to use it as the backend for my company's redesigned website. I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I've now forgotten the password I used when I initially set it up. When I use the "Remember Password" form I don't receive the reset password email. I believe this is because I have yet to configure the email settings with the admin interface. Is there ANY other way to recover my password? It's SHA1 encrypted in the database (as it should be). Please let me know if you have any thoughts--I've shot myself in the foot here and will take any help I can get. Thanks.

Or you could set a [url=http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=security#add_a_global_login_account]default login[/url], by adding Security::setDefaultAdmin('username', 'password'); to mysite/_config.php.
Then you can log in, and change your password. You may want to remove the default login (by removing the line) afterwards.
