I inadvertantly changed my user password config to (no password), now i cannot get back in to my site. Please tell me how to bypass that login screen that requests a password...OR remove said password.

Thank You

Boot into rescue mode to reset the password of the user in question. Once logged in as root, use the passwd command to change the user in question's password back to something easily remembered. Reboot and login normally.
