1. Modify /app_data/users.xml adding (or updating) default profile for admin/admin:

<User>
    <UserName>Admin</UserName>
    <Password>jGl25bVBBBW96Qi9Te4V37Fnqchz/Eu4qB9vKrRIqRg=</Password>
    <Email>post@example.com</Email>
    <LastLoginTime>2007-12-05 20:46:40</LastLoginTime>
</User>

2. Modify /web.config forcing IIS to restart application, any minor change to this file like adding or removing comment will do.

Now you should be able to login as admin/admin. That is, if you are using default XML membership provider. If you on SQL server, then instead of modifying file you would need to modify user record in DB.
