    Now I have to try and remember what username and password I used.

    Is there a way to find this out via access to the files via FTP?

    No, they are only in the database, and the password is encrypted anyway.

    Got it. Phew. Could have been a total reinstall.

    Thanks a lot for your prompt reply in helping me.
