Trying to retrieve deleted threads, can't remember old account password

In progress Trying to retrieve deleted threads, can't remember old account password

Post by request Sat Jul 13, 2013 7:22 pm

During January 2013 I have deleted some threads that contained some good posts, I was wondering if I could retrieve it.  I have tried to use The utilities - back up  and restore option,  my  email is correct as I haven't changed it since its creation,  I also have the name of the old website which I have changed,  but  I don't remember the account creation password I used in the first place as I have changed it  a year later.


This is my forum http://theplace2.iftopic.com/

Kind regards

If you do restore your forum (messages) to an earlier date, you will lost any new messages created after that date.

If you do a full restore, you also lost new members.

That is true but  I haven't used my website much since 2013 February, so not much will be lost,  only  a thread created in January will be retrieved.

So the issue is that you can not log into the Forum Utilities?

Thanks, but my forum password is working fine.  The problem is the account creation password(the first password)  which I have forgotten,  I need that to rest the back up.

What do you mean, you've forgotten your first password?

Read that tutorial it has instructions on how to gain access to the utilities if you've forgotten your first password.
