Forgot password and attempted to update table with new password

edited January 2014 in Installation
The forget password function wasnt working and didn't send me an email, probably because I'm working locally, so I attempted to add the md5 hash manually to the database. However, the login wouldn't accept these new credentials. What is the proper way of resetting the password?

    You could try resetting the password and the salt value back to the original installation SQL found in the fuel/install/ folder. The default login and password was "admin" / "admin"

    Be sure to specify the domain and the proper from email address in your MY_fuel.php file for emails which may help:
    $config['domain'] = $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME']; $config['from_email'] = 'admin@'.$config['domain']
