So I created a few users with “Administrator” roles and deleted my “admin” user (the one with super-admin role) on my WordPress site.
Later I realized that only that specific user had access to some hidden stuff while editing pages, that the normal Administrator users dont have access to.
Because “admin” (super admin) no longer exists, I cant access the AWM Group menus so I can’t give another user the super-admin role.
Using phpMyAdmin, I tried creating a new user named “admin” directly on the DB with ID=1 on the wp_users table (believing that would help) but when I logged in with this new “admin” user, I didnt even have access do wp-admin.
I cant use a backup because some people have registered since this happened and made a lot of changes to the website!
– How can I give the super-admin role to some other user using phpMyAdmin??
– Does creating the user “admin” with id=1 even help? If so, what am I missing? What should I change in the DB besides the Id?
Thank you very much!
