I need administrative rights for my website!!!

We had a web designer build our website with Concrete5, and now I need a way to give myself administrative rights to change page defaults. I should be the administrator on the account but I guess not. Is there a way to get administrative rights on my own website, can someone point me in the right direction?

and it gave me
"You are not allowed to change these permissions."

Do you have an a login that is the "admin" user? This is the Super User in concrete5 and can bypass all security.

This HowTo talks a little about resetting a password. You are going to want to reset the admin password. The admin user(Super User) has a user id(uID) of 1.

I tried method 3, it created a new login and password, but still no admin rights. I'm in the middle of trying method 2, but the last part I don't understand.

6. Navigate to the Users table in the database, find the row of the User that you want to change the password for, modify the password column and enter your new md5 hash. Ensure theres no whitespace at the end.

I'm not sure exactly where to find the Users table, is it talking about in the site.php (DB_USERNAME) or is this a different file somewhere. I'm so lost!
