Use drush upwd to reset your password

drush upwd --password="givememypasswordback" "admin"

If you don't have drush installed do it via MySQL. Here is a related article.

  • @Aymen Did you try the MySQL way ? Are you sure you are typing your password correctly ? Lastly try the one-time-login link drush uli (like mentionted above) and check your email.

  • I'm pretty sure you can create another account, copy its hash to user 1 and then use its password. Or use backup migrate. Aug 21, 2016 at 19:28
