Locked out of forums

Post by NazTheEternal »

I was recently bridging my phpbb to Drupal and forgot that the forums were currently disabled...
Once I logged out, I couldn't log back in and now im trapped out of my forums....I attempted to manually enable the forums through the database settings but that did nothing....Any ideas?

The configurations are cached. If you manually edit something in the *config table, you've to clear the cache. If you can't reach the ACP index, this is as easy as emptying the cache/ directory on your server.
Don't remove .htaccess and index.htm!
