    Unless your userid is set in the config.php file as an "unalterable admin":
    1. Copy your config.php back to your hard drive to ensure you have the current version.

    2. In config.php, around line 126, look for

      PHP Code:
          //    ****** UNDELETABLE / UNALTERABLE USERS ******
          //    The users specified here will not be deletable or alterable from the control panel by any users.
          //    To specify more than one user, separate userids with commas.
      $config['SpecialUsers']['undeletableusers'] = ' '
      Any numbers between those last single quote marks cannot be changed. If your member ID is there, delete it temporarily and upload the modified config.php file to your server.

    3. Now change your password in the AdminCP.

    4. Finally, re-enter your userid in the Special Users line above and upload the config.php file to your server again.
