Ironically our 'Founder' has died (yes, I know....) and has not passed Founder status to me. I understand I need to change my db settings to make myself Founder since the ACP options are not available. I think from searches the role I need is '3'?
For an emergency founder account see viewtopic.php?p=15519436#p15519436.
Create that account, make your own account a founder, then remove founder status of the old founder account (actually remove all permissions). Log in with your own founder account and remove the emergency founder account.
Explain me, how it can be secure to provide a script like the linked, that expose an admin account/pass that anybody know (even if for a while) and that require to execute a query via phpmyadmin.Editing the database directly is not to be recommended to new users especially when the script referenced above will do the job quickly and safely.
Asking myself, why nobody did a simple php file that can do this easily in two ways: or update an user ID or create a new random username/pass.
I do not also see anyway a valid reason to remove my posts and procedure. Are you joking?
