Maintenance Mode+Forgot Main password

So at some point i thought i would change my main password for my site. And forgot where i wrote it down.
And then i put my site in maintenance mode!

I have narrowed it down to the lostpassword.php not working, since it is not sending me an email.

I can access my phpmyadmin and change the status of maintenance there.

But the changing my password is tricky as i seem to not be able to figure out how. I do see it in phpmyadmin, but it looks encrypted, so i guess?? that if i change it there it would be all weird? or is that just me?

My question is:
How do i get access to my site again?

I have tried to upload a new version of lostpassword.php. Even from different versions.
I have tried changing the main email - just to see if that was bugged (in phpmyadmin)

It is NOT a admin password for the admin. It is the MAIN password for the site (that i happen to be the admin of) Just to explain that.

I also have searched searched and searched for answers and tried out a few, before asking this question.
This will set your user password to 12345678 and your admin password to 123456789
Edit and replace each line in the database from phpmyadmin ( users > the user you want to reset )
