How to Backup Data on Locked iPhone

I changed my screen / log on password and have forgotten it and am wondering how best to recover the password or reset it to a new one? I tried what I had thought I changed it to though the system locked me out and it is now saying "Connect to iTunes" which I did and am not finding anything to reset it.
