Access to the administrator backend no longer works. Anyone know how to fix it?

Please describe exactly what happens when you try to access the back end! A screenshot may be useful too. What did you do last before this problem arose?

Sorry for the inaccurate description. We are working on a website for an external party.
In the process, there are longer interruptions from the processing (2-3 months) due to work.
Since the last login with admin user again some months have passed and now the login does not work anymore.
When the admin user logs in, the error occurs:
Wrong password or user does not exist.

See: https://docs.joomla.org/How_do_you_reco ... assword%3F

At the top it mentions Joomla 1.5 prominently - but it is just a warning that this page is NOT for 1.5
