Summary of this tutorial:

You will want to start by finding the phpMyAdmin for your localhost, most of the time it is localhost/phpmyadmin

The standard login information for that MySQL page is root with no password.

When you log in you will want to go to your WordPress database and find the wp_users table.

There will now be a list of users that are on your site and you will want to click edit next to the user of your choice.

You will then select the user_pass section, remove the random number and letter combination, and fill in the password in the field.

After that you need to select the MD5 in the 'function' column and then click the Go button at the bottom to save your changes.

You should now be able to log in to your localhost using your new password.
