Thank you for our response and additionally for the reply you made the other day. If you've read any of my posts I'm not familiar w/ Drupal so I was extremely confused when I first approached this problem as I expected a different interface and was..well ...lost.
I managed to watch some tuts and install Drupal as "localhost' so I'm less of an idiot but not by much.
As stated earlier the person who set up the set left angry and kept the passwords. I need to reset them.
You stated: "You want to go to the drupal_users table and click on browse at the top"
When logged onto the website devincolemen.com or dreamhost.com I don't find the drupal_users table. I'm not sure why but I suspect it has something to do w/ a simple install which this site is rather than a manual install. If you know this to be T/F pls let me know.
Otherwise perhaps I'm just being blind/stupid but I can't find the table you refer to so I can't change User1. Could you be more explicit as to it location?
If I can't access drupal_users can I do this as a different approach to a solution..
can I manually install drupal to a subdomain and COPY/FTP the devincoleman.com database and files to that subdomain? If Y could I then use Drupal, as installed, to make changes then swap (or redirest) the edited sites.
If yes could you point me to a post/explanation?
Thank you again for taking your time to assist me.
