"User already exists. Password inherited." - but what's the password? (2 posts)

    Hi - I just installed WordPress 2.2 and I'm getting the following message:

    "Second Step

    Now we’re going to create the database tables and fill them with some default data.

    Finished!

    Now you can log in with the username "admin" and password "User already exists. Password inherited.".

    Note that password carefully! It is a random password that was generated just for you. If you lose it, you will have to delete the tables from the database yourself, and re-install WordPress. So to review:

    Username
    admin
    Password
    User already exists. Password inherited.
    Login address
    wp-login.php

    Were you expecting more steps? Sorry to disappoint. All done! :)"

    The problem is that I don't know the password, and any attempts of recovering the password have failed :( All I get is a "username/email mismatch".

    WordPress was installed on the same directory, but I deleted the files, and did a fresh install.

    Any suggestions on how to retrieve the password - or somehow get access to the blog - will be greatly appreciated.
