  • Deleted master admin

    hehe i screwed up
    and logged into my other admins account
    and i wanted to see if he had access to delete me

    well it deleted me
    so i had to create a new login
    and i used his account to make myself admin again....................
    is this going to screw anything up???
    since i am the owner
    and the username i created the boards with was erased?

    There shouldn't be any lasting harm. If you had any posts under the deleted admin name, then these will no longer be linked to you. Other than that I can't think of any problems.

      Couldn't you edit the database to change your userid to 1 like it was before?

        Why do you need to have userid=1? I don't on my forums.

          and read some info

            In the config.php isn't there something about viewing an admin log where only userid 1 can do it?

                So that all the past posts will be linked to your new admin user.

                Also, the thing about the config.php, but that can be easily changed.

                      It's the user table; you can use phpmyadmin to change it.

                          Someone else set up the boards on my website and they were recently removed (userid=1) from their administrator account. How do I make sure that he can no longer access my forum control panel?

                            The best way to be sure is to protect the admin directory with htaccess.
