Solved As admin I cannot login into my own forum

Post by pakische on October 8th 2013, 2:46 pm

Hi

I created my new forum yesterday. I am the admin and I shared the admin pasword with few of my friends. My primary email is registered but I am not able to log in as admin as someone changed the password. It has been hacked. When I try to reset my password this is all I get 

The security 'Disallow admin to send new password' is active in Admin Panel > General Admin > Security

Is there anyway I can retrieve my forum from hackers. Please help me. I had to create a new id to post this. I will giveout my forum address if the mods me to PM.

Thank you

Hello pakische,

Use this to disable 'Disallow admin to send new password' or retrieve a new password for your founder account.

You have to login with either your forum address or Founder email, and Founder password. (Password used in forum creation)

Could it be that one of your friends changed it?

For security reasons, I would not share the founder account information with anyone, except for Forumotion.

Solved Resetting password -

Post by Warleggan on October 17th 2013, 2:25 pm

Newbie to forum admin so patience please! - yesterday stupidly rushed setting up forum without remembering password - and username - so when tried to access to day could not get access as password reset requires username ! Registered again as a different user to access the support forum. As advised by post elsewhere on forum I tried to send a PM to forum support team but got message that I had not reached the threshold of posts for sending PMs! Help please. PS I do have the original e-mail acknowledging forum set up.

You need two posts to send a pm.
