I did and I thought I'd throw up my solutions for some further search options. This assumes you have access to your webserver to use some PHP code.
Option 1 - Set a Global Login
In your _config.php
Option 2 - Use the Environment Configuration file
At the top level of your site folder create _ss_environment.php
Option 3 - Using a Member DataObject
In some page controller, config, or any interpreted php file:
$m = DataObject::get_one('Member', "Email = 'firstname.lastname@example.org'");
All of these can get the job done. If you were thinking about trashing around the database and changing the hashes yourself I would recommend against it. SilverStripe uses salted SHA1 encryption which is no fun to try and create yourself just to overwrite in multiple tables.

Very useful, thanks - I needed it just now. The strange thing was that Silverstripe no longer recognised my existing password as valid - I was not entering the wrong one. I wonder whether I accidentally changed it while installing another Silverstripe app on the same server (even though I didn't use the 'SS_mysite' database, I specified another).
