I have an old forum that I installed shortly after version 3 came out. It can be found here: http://www.srstudios.org/oldforums/
I stopped using my website for awhile, and never really picked it up but I'm ready now to begin using it again.
When I registered the admin account on that board, I used an email address that was tied to the website. It was firstname.lastname@example.org
however, I've changed the domain name since then and began using Gmail for my email address. I stopped paying for the old website name and moved everything over to a new domain, so I no longer have access to that email address.
I can't remember the admin accounts password since it was created so long ago, and since I no longer have access to my original email address, I can't recover it.
Is there any other way for me to recover my password? Or perhaps a way to create another admin account so that I can manually change the password myself? I really, really, really don't want to reinstall another copy of forums onto the server. I already started doing that, but I'm using my boyfriend's server space for my website and he can't remember how to get to the information needed to finalize the installation. I'm sure he could figure it out if he tried enough, but I'd rather try this first before being a bother to him.
Please let me know if there's anything I can do to use this already installed version and get my account back. I can do whatever is needed to prove that the site belongs to me. Also, I don't mind if the answer means that I'll have to lose all my members/topics/etc, because as you can tell, it's all old and not very developed at all. I just want to start over fresh without having to reinstall.
Thank you so much for your time.
