Solved Trying to roll back , but dont have the original password

Post by igorcarlier on May 28th 2013, 5:30 am

i am the founder of lightness.goodforum.net

fortunately i almost never need to use my admin account or do roll back to backups ...

but since we have a new leader in our guild, we made him admin .. and he have deleted old non active members from the forum ... witch is something we never do by tradition.

know i want to do a roll back to one of the backup restore points .. i cant pass the authentication and there is not lost password function !

so what happands is

i go the administration panel , i go to the general tab , then security , then i press : click here to manage your backup ... this goes to a window saying

Forum utilities

Authentification

The tools will allow you to :

modify the founder profile
use the backup system to restore your board.
remove HTML errors
(When the bottom of your forum cannot be seen anymore)

Login :Use your creation e-mail address or your forum address

Password :Password used at forum creation


and no forgot password or anything like that.

what can i do ?
