If you have access to the database, you can read it with the following SQL query:

select password from res_users where login='admin';

On the other hand, if you have admin access to OpenERP (which requires having the password, which may be too late for you...) you can go to Settings -> Configuration -> General settings, and in the "Portal Access" section, check the "Enable password reset from login page" option. Then you will get a "reset password" link from the login page which will send a link by email to the email address linked with the user attempting to log in, if you have also configured the email gateway. This works in V7.

Sorry, I had not noticed Christophe Simonis answer saying basically the same thing as my edited answer.

The SQL query will work only if 'Password Encryption' module is not installed, otherwise result will be encrpyted (and hence not useful).

To do it through one command line just type sudo -u openerp psql --dbname <database> --command "select password from res_users where login='admin';".

In OpenERP 7, go to Settings > Users and select the user you want to reset the password for. You will see a button labeled "Reset password" in the top right corner that will send an email to the email address of the user with a new password.
An email smtp server needs to be set up in OpenERP for this to work.

He lost the admin user's password, so he can't connect.

Since version 7.0 this functionality is provided by the module auth_signup.

Once installed you need to go to Settings > General Settings and check the option Enable password reset from Login page.

As Fabrice said, you need to have a outgoing email server configured.

Reset password, even if Email is not configured.

In OpenERP 7, go to Settings > Users and select the user you want to reset the password for. In the top click on More -> Change Password.

But this can be done only after login.
