Solved Admin of unused forum now unable to log in

Post by fumblina on November 8th 2013, 3:03 pm

Hi,

I am the admin for a forum that hasn't been used for several years and I no longer remember my password or have the initial set up email.  Someone(unknown to me) has recently registered to join the forum and I have activated the account in error and I am concerned by what I might have given them access to... no idea what is in the forum now!

I read the post about resetting passwords but I do not have permissions to PM so cannot contact an admin to help.

Can someone please contact me to resolve this.

Ideally I would like to close the forum down as I had no idea it was still active.

Thanks!
