  • Admin locked out

    So today I have done a right stupid thing.
    I created a members paid section. You pay your membership and get auto upgraded to see more of the site.
    like a fool I added myself with and end date of 3036. Clicked save then realised it had just moved me from admin to a lower group now I can't get to my control panel

    Any ideas how I can get back in or reverse what I have done? ?????

    Thanks

    Support will have to get you back in. I did something like that a while back, and learned my lesson. Now i have another Admin name for emegency’s like that.

      Upload the tools.php from your vBulletin download package. It is in the do_not_download folder. You can place it in the AdminCP folder. You will also need to upload the /install directory as well.

      Once you have this uploaded, visit the page in your browser. It will allow you to elevate a user to the Admin position.

          Yes. Although the /install directory needs to go in /core.
