Account name changed and password

Post by Macca_96 on June 14th 2013, 12:32 pm

Hi there.

I am the creator ofhttp://apexevolution.forumotion.com/and recently I had no choice but to give my password out to a member on the forum so that he could retrieve my inbox messages for me as I didnt have access to a computer. He has betrayed me and changed my acc name, email and password. As I am the creator of the site, I thought it might be on Forumotion's log that I am and was hoping I could retrieve my account.

My account name before it was renamed is Macca_96 and email is

Cheers.

Use the forum utils found here to gain remote access to your forum's ACP.

Right you should still be able to log in to your forums utilities in the link Ultron's Vision has above.
You have to use your original email address and pass you used to create the forum with. it dose not matter if they changed it on the forum, you can still log in with your original email and pass you used when you created the forum.

then if not you will have to send me the email you used to create the forum with, and your forum link and i can send a new pass to you.

Yes, also be sure that "betrayer" has not access to your e-mail.
If you used the same password for your e-mail - change it immediately!

Also, under Administration Panel -> General -> Security, select "Confirm password for administrative access?" with Yes, so even if he is logged in through cookies, he won't have access to the ACP and won't be able to cause harm anymore. You might want to set up a fake homepage message urging all members to delete their cookies.

Also, if you have never changed your password after you created the forum, log in to the "Forum utilities" again, and "Edit creator's information" -> "New password".
Else the "betrayer" will be able to hack your forum again, and next time it will be harder to get it back.

Yes it is. Thanks. And just quickly, does entering the passwowd in the log-in utility reset the password for the founder account on the forum?

If we do a password reset only then the password gets reset on both forum & the utilities page.

Hi guys, can I send any of those indicated names or do I have to wait til they get on? Can I send all of them a message for my case? I'm worried that they might think I'm spamming all of them. >_<

You can send a pm anytime. Leeloo is no longer with Forumotion, so do not send a pm to her.

DO not send it to me. I can not reset passwords. I send it to Sanket.
