Solved: 4 Years, 4 Months, 3 Weeks ago [How To?] Create New Admin User

Solved: 4 Years, 4 Months, 3 Weeks ago
I've accidentally banned my admin account with a soft ban plugin. I can't figure out how to manually unable it, so I want to know; How can I make a new admin account via MySQL? 

I can use an admin account to access the plugins list of deleted accounts and un delete myself..

I thought I was only soft banned from the forum itself and not the admin panel as well.

Hi,

I am not really strong with MySQL, but would love to suggest a recommendation. There are users and staff that have expertise in MySQL. Once, the issue has been resolved. Make a TEMP_ADM account (you can have the account as an admin, but display as a normal user to hide from the staff page). This will be useful if you ever banned yourself or lose access to your main account to fix the problems. Make sure you have a different password so if I hack occurs they do not take both accounts.
Best Regards,
Robert

I've fixed it. I did the following.

1) Create A Standard Account
2) Set the User group to Admin via MySQL
3) Logged into admin panel.
4) Opened user page and located banned users option.
5) Selected unban option.
