I am trying to update a website created in mambo but the admin & user passwords dont work, not sure if thay are correct.
Is there any way I can bypass the login screen, I have access to the database and have also downloaded all files of the website.
I have never used Mambo before, can I bypass the login page or manually create new usernames & passwords directly into the users table?
