Admin password lost and updating to 2.0.8

Hey there,
Very happy to see that Luna is back! 🙂
Just a quick and stupid question: I lost the password to my admin account, Can I update from 2.0.7 to 2.0.8 without access to the admin account?
And a more important question: is there a way to get the admin password back somehow? The e-mail recovery doesn't work either, I think it was badly configured...
Or can I create a new admin account from scratch in the database?
I am using MySQL for the database.
Thanks a lot!

Easiest thing that I can think of is to install Luna on your PCs localhost (using XAMP or something). Set an admin password. Copy the password from that database to the one one you've forgotten.

Like Bem said, that's the easiest option. You could indeed create a new account and than manually configure it in the database to be an admin (but I wouldn't recommend that).

Updating Luna can be done without any permissions.

You can do anything
