if you are the owner then you can change their user group
(to super moderator or to moderator or to regular member)

visit their profile in forum admin panel & change the group

user profile can be edited through users & groups section

Have you changed the server passwords?
  • console panel password if VPS
  • root password
  • MySql password (especially if you have phpMyAdmin)
  • SSH keys

If you have purchased it, and the above advice isn't working for some users, it means that there is a super admin out there.

Open: /inc/config.php

Find super admin line, and put your uid in it ONLY.
