First off, PostgreSQL stores passwords as md5 hashes (well, the last few
versions do anyway) so you won't be able to retrieve the password,
although a brute force md5 cracker might be able to eventually guess it
if it isn't too complex.
However, the standard way I use for getting back in is:
edit pg_hba.conf and set it to have an entry for local all all trust at
the top. restart postgresql. Log in as postgres (psql template1 -U
postgres) change the postgres password. Edit pg_hba.conf and get rid of
the trust line, restart postgres, psql template1 -U postgres to get back
in, and use select * from pg_shadow to see all the usernames.
