XF 1.2 Problem moving from development to live server...

So, I've been developing my forum on my XAMPP installation. Now I'm ready to go live. Here are the steps I followed...

1) FTP'd all files to the live server.
2) Changed the library/config.php to include my live database information.
3) Exported the database from XAMPP and imported to live server.

When I navigate to the site, it appears to load fine. The problem is that when I try to log in using my admin Username, the forum is telling me I have the wrong password. I had two users installed and both of them are saying wrong password. Any ideas?

I have exported/imported to and from localhost many times without encountering that problem.

Try clicking on the "Forgot your password?" link and see if you can get in that way.
