  • Seriously unique problem

    I feel like an idiot for having to post this .... but somehow my status on my forum got changed from Administrator to Moderator, and now I can't seem to get it to revert back. Can anyone help me with this problem please??!

    Nevermind ... I guess I'll just wipe it out and re-install everything.

      Now Now, its only been 30 min, please wait at least 12 hours before bumping a post

      You can restore your admin user with tools.php found in the do_not_upload folder of your zip file.

      Upload this file, tools.php, to your admincp directory, from there use reset administration function to bring yourself back to admin status.

      As sooon as you have done this make sure to remove tools.php because it is dangerous.

              *stiffles a laugh* I got real close to doing that ..... luckily all I managed to do was bump myself down to Moderator ..... *wipes the sweat off his forehead* I don't even want to know how much of a pain it would be to correct banning myself .... lol

                Let's just say that my members STILL give me grief over that, and it happened in 2001....
