Welcome to the forum!

You created this topic in the forum for Joomla 1.5, which had its End of Life in 2012. Which version of Joomla did you install?

Which exercise file did you import? Please provide a link to the page from where the file was downloaded.

If the Admin password is the problem you can reset it via the methods below:

Joomla 1.5: https://docs.joomla.org/J1.5:How_do_you ... assword%3F
Or for other versions Joomla 2.5 and above: https://docs.joomla.org/How_do_you_reco ... assword%3F

Sorry but that is not a link to a web page from where you downloaded the .sql file.

A word of advice: rather than studying a version of Joomla that became obsolete 8 years ago, use your favourite search engine and you will find plenty of tutorials and even videos about the current version of Joomla, 3.9.x.

On the other hand, if you are learning Joomla in order to migrate an old website to the current, supported version, post your questions to the Migrating and Upgrading to Joomla! 3.x forum and you may receive relevant advice.

None the less you're learning a version of joomla that is no longer supported.

Download and use 3.9.x (https://downloads.joomla.org) and refer to https://docs.joomla.org for help on using it.

There are also video tutorials at https://community.joomla.org/joomla-training.html
