Issues logging in admin

So, I created a user and made him an affilliate in order to test the affilliate program. I got an email letting me know my account was activated and that I needed to visit /admin.php to access the affilliate back end.

So, in admin, I enter my user name and password and its no good. Not sure why. It was a really simple password. Then I ask for a password reminder. I clicked the link and it gives me a popup that says, “enter your new password below” but all it is the standard login screen of username and password.

Is there an issue with the site resetting passwords? Is this a SQL issue?
