Mambo - can you bypass login page

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?

IIRC the Mambo password is just an MD5 password. Try this

insert into _users ( username, password, userType ) values( 'Administrator', MD5('somepassword'), 'Super Administrator')

replacing _users with the actual table name and change the username from "Administrator" to something else if the user table already contains it. Check the _usertypes table contains data as well. Usertype "Super Administrator" should be in there.

It's been a while since I've used Mambo.... I found it too insecure and frequently attacked.
