Hello guys,

I have got a problem with my website.
I changed the password of the "Admin" user of my site but i forgot it, so i logged from Cpanel and i changed it again.
The problem is that now the "Admin" user it has became a "normal" user and I dont know how to change the role !! Can you help me ? Sorry for the bad english.

Regards

is it a wordpress website ? if so you can change the password for the admin user from phpmyadmin directly by editing the Database that is associated with your website.

Hi,

It appears that you may have changed the user's attributes also, making it normal user when you actually changed the password. Login in back to phpmyadmin, change the attributes and role back to the admin for the user..
