You can ftp the forum, look for admin.vars in the ./Members folder, edit and change the encrypted password to a plain text word, overwrite the admin.vars with the edited one.  Login as admin using the plain text word, once in go to profile and change the password again as desired.

Original Administrator Password Recovery?

We took over the management an old message board. We have Administrator credentials. I was asked by the owners of the board to delete all traces of the user that installed the board on the server. I guess he is a "Super Administrator?"

Do I need his password?
Is there a way to recover his password? He is no longer accessible, so I can't ask him.

Thanks.
