XF 1.5 Can't login after site migration!

So I've just migrated my XenForo forum to another host. Apparently, the login cookies were still set so I was already logged in as soon as I accessed the new site. I tried to enter the AdminCP but was given the following error... "Incorrect password. Please try again.". I've never changed my password. It has always been the same. So I logged out of my account and attempted to login. I was unable to do this also. It keeps telling me that my password is incorrect when I know for a fact that it isn't. At this point, I decided to try a password reset. However, the email never arrived even after several attempts. This is probably due to the mail config no longer being correct.

So what should I do? Does this have anything to do with file permissions being incorrect after the migration? What might cause this?

What versions of PHP are on the original and new server?

If you have moved from e.g. 5.3 to 5.2 then that would explain it.

Otherwise, check the browser is not auto filling the password field with an incorrect password.
