phpBB3 Lost Administrator Password

If the password for the admin user has been forgotten/lost/whatever.
Register on the site as a new user but BEFORE logging in edit the MySQL database table phpbb_users and set the field user_type to 3 (i.e. founder).
Then log in and visit the ACP.
From the ACP normal user management can take place again.
