To change your password, you need to follow these steps:
1. Open the settings.php (in 1.3 and onwards the settings file will be in the data/ folder) in your favorite text editor.
2. Find the line that has '$pass = "string of numbers and letters"' and remove and change it to '$pass = md5("your new password");' without the single quotes.
3. Save the file.
4. Go to your administration panel and click 'Settings'.
5. Click the 'Update' button.
Your password has now been changed.
