Reset password and unblock login for admin (or any account) in Drupal 8 with SQL query in MySQL or MariaDB

My Drupal 8 site got some problem and I restored it from an old backup.
The problem is, I forgot the password of admin account, and I don't have a working MTA (ex, Postfix Mail Transport Agent) on the server for sending password resetting mail.
The solutions to reset password and unblock the account in database directly.

Hope this HOWTO can save a tree and a kitten.
