All My Members Are Admins - Help!!

Discussion in 'Forum Management' started by delrivo, Sep 27, 2007.

    Hi

    I have just converted my phpnuke site to smf and everything has gone perfectly using the converter except all my members are now admins, and i am NOT!!

    Is there some kind of quick fix i could use by going into the mysql databases.

    I have asked on the smf forum but not had a reply in 3 days so posting here now.

    Also if anyone knows any other way of fixing this any help is much appreciated.

    That sounds pretty bad, usually if you post in general support their replies are quite fast.

    first, put your forum in maitanence mode

    then, go to phpMyAdmin and go to smf_members

    everyone is probably set as ID_GROUP=1, so run a SQL statement to make everyone a 2 and change yours back to 1

    I'm sorry for not adding anything constructive ... maybe it's the beer ... but this thread gave me a good chuckle.

    Hope you fix the issue!

    UPDATE Table SET ID_GROUP = 1 WHERE ID_GROUP = 2;

    if you have cPanel, go to phpMyAdmin.
    when it loads, go to the SMF forum database.
    click on SQL.

    then paste this into the textbox:
    UPDATE smf_members SET ID_GROUP = 2 WHERE ID_GROUP = 1;

    that changes everyone back to a regular member. the OP still has to regain admin control. go to smf_members and click browse, find yourself and change your member group to 1, then click go.
