How to recover admin password for WordPress

In the beginning of this week, when I tried to log into my wordpress, I came to know my password has been modified. Then immediately as I opened my website, it was redirected to some other url. When I contacted my ISP, I came to know the server has been hit by brute force attack. Then this is what I have done:

– Copied index.php again from word press to my website so that it stops redirecting itself.

– In order to recover my admin password for my word press, I googled and came across this url: http://www.zappersoftware.com/Help/md5.php which helps generating password in MD5 format. I copied the MD5 password and connected to my word press database and modified my admin password. This time I included special characters as well 🙂 for more protection.
