Occupied email problem for admin...

Post by CosmicD » Fri Jul 27, 2007 7:40 am

Hello,

When I had converted our board I chose the same nick for me to be a new administrator (and another password). Upon the last step when I had to login the admin of the newly converted board, I got a messages saying:

"unable to convert your password to the new format" (i think something like that).

At this point I could still login with my old nick/pass combination and had founder status. But I can't change my email adress to my gmail adress anymore because the ACP says it's already used.

WHere is this 'half converted" admin account and can I remove (or alter) this ?

thx

Do both of your usernames appear in the Memberlist?

nope, only one.

but I already found it in phpmyadmin :) it was some account i created to test normal user rights in the previous version:

I guess that's why the end step of the conversion couldn't log me in because I used that same email ?
