  • emergency! I just made myself a regular member and lost my admin control!

    I was testing the subscription service. When I subscribed, I think it made me a regular member. Now, I can't get into the admin functions. There are no other admins on my board, so there's no one to fix this. What can I do?

    It seems that this shouldn't be able to happen.

    Upload the tools.php script in the 'extras' folder to your Admin CP directory. Use this to promote your user to Admin, then immediately remove this script.

      Steve, thanks for the information, but I hired you guys to do my upgrade install. I don't know what you mean.

        Download the zip from from the Members Area. Unzip it and locate the tools.php script in the 'extras' folder. Upload this to your Admin CP directory then run it from your browser.

        If you need futher help, fill out a support ticket at:

        http://www.vbulletin.com/members/mem...ontactform.php

        Be sure to include the login info to your Admin CP, phpMyAdmin and FTP.

          You can download the zip file in the member's area. Tools.php is in the extras folder in the zip file.

          If you want us to do this for you then you can send me a private message with the FTP info for your server, the URL of your forums, and the name of the account which you want restored to admin.

          (or submit a ticket like Steve said)
