Solved Founder is Gone and we need to back Date the Forum

Post by Zeak on December 14th 2012, 6:35 pm

So I talked with all of my staff members and no one knows who owns the forum..
But right now I'm the one with Founders Powers.
So all we want to do is back up of our forum for about 6 Months back.
We don't not know who the Original Founder is. . .
Nor do we have an Email address of who it maybe so we can contact them.

But all we really want to do is backdate the forum 6 months...

The way to do a restore for an earlier date is to use the Utilities, but you have to have original email and password to log in.

Like i just previous stated
"We don't not know who the Original Founder is. . . Nor do we have an Email address"
We can't use the Utilities at this time.
Are forum was hacked and deleted everything over a month ago, so all we want to do is back date it to June of 2012.

I can also prove i am the only person who has "Access to Admin Control Panel"

You can try to recover the founder account - http://help.forumotion.com/t81878-recovery-or-change-founder-of-an-account .

To figure out who was the founder:
Go to the memberlist.
Look at the registration date.
Look for the very first member to register, that is the founder.

Right now im the only one with Founder Powers on the forum , but i can't get into the Utilities for the mater of me not knowing the Originals Founders E-mail address & Password

Like i also said our forum was hacked!
Right now im the only one who can get into Admin Pannel

You can still figure out who was the founder if the forum was hacked. You can do it with memberlist or in the administration panel. The founder account can not be deleted.

Administration Panel > Users & Groups > Users > Search Users
