    It appears i have lost all USERS on my site..
    http://www.evejunkies.com

    i was able to make a new accoutn and log in.. BUT any previous account/users are gone meaning also admin user who can get to the admin panels IE user, option blah blah blah.

    Is there a way I can get back into my site as admin level??

    my site is still "alive" once i create a new user.. i am just a normal user.. but i need to get back into the panels. how can i..??

    Use phpMyadmin and in the wp_usermeta table find the rows for your user_id

    set wp_capabilities to:
    a:1:{s:13:"administrator";b:1;}

    setwp_user_level to:
    10

    i have managed to get back on. though it appears that the accounts/user no longer exist. yet through phpmyadmin i can still see them..

    can i somehow in phpmyadmin "reactivate" these accounts?

    So you see a record (row) in wp-posts for a user but you don't see that user in your admin panel->Users->Users & Authors?
