I'm a new Drupal user.
Someone gave me a backup of their Drupal and .mysql content. I more or less followed these instructions: http://www.ostraining.com/blog/drupal/drupal-migrate/, except the site already had it's own settings.php, and so the site is now up and running.
The problem that I'm having now is that I can't log into the site to make any edits because I don't have a login. I tried to create an active user in phpmyadmin with an md5 hash password, and changed the user to an administrator. However I'm still not successfully logging in, the site says I'm still giving it the incorrect login info. When I try to recover/reset my password by email I am not receiving any emails. I am using Windows XP.
Is there any way I will be able to login to edit the site?
