Locked out of forum - Please help

Post by VPWanda »

I'm hosting a forum for my neigbor (phpbb 3.0.2) and he got himself totally locked out.
I went into the database to try to figure out what settings are wrong, but I just can't figure it out.
You can see the problem at this link.
If anyone has any ideas at all of what could possibly be wrong, I would really appreciate it!

If he could access it before, and did nothing, then the host has changed the database information in some respect.

I contacted my host and they are saying that it's nothing on their side.
So what should I try to do right now? Any idea at all?
What table could the problem be in? I can get into the database, so if there is a setting I can change...

The database info is in config.php. Make sure that the user/password in there has access to the database.
