I am using the PHP version and I lost my login password

Question:
I am using the PHP version and I lost my login password.
What do I do now?

Answer:

Version: 2.9.8.3 or newer
This version added hashed login passwords for better security.
Use the “Lost Password” link on the login form, the password can be reset by a verified email.
If you cannot even remember your username or email address, you can still reset your password manually.
FTP to your web server, look in this directory: /contact-files/settings/
download this file: fsc_site.php, then open it and you will insert your new username and password inside.
The data is in a PHP array, the array keys you look at are:
admin_usr
admin_pwd
The username/password can be manually inserted replacing the hashed encrypted ones. The first time you log in, they will be encrypted again.

Version: 2.9.8.3 or older
FTP to your web server, look in this directory: /contact-files/settings/
download this file: fsc_site.php, then open it and you will find your username and password inside.
The data is in a PHP array, the array keys you look at are:
admin_usr
admin_pwd
