  • Marged Admin user with regular and can't access admin page

    I took the admin username and merged it into another one which wasn't setup as admin. Since the admin username was deleted as a result I don't have access to the admin page anymore. What can I do to give this new username admin status without being able to access the admin page?

    You need to add your userid to this value so it looks like this

    $superadministrators = '1';

    If you installed the board from scratch your userid 1.

    Save your config.php

    3. Point your browser to
