    I have a strange issue. I was the only admin for my wordpress blog. accidently, I have removed the admin access user from the database. Unfortunately, I do not have the backup of the database too. Now, I would like to add the admin user of blog from database. How can I add it?

  2. Access your database (via phpMyAdmin) ...

    Go to your WordPress database, find the wp_users table and insert a row. Use ID value of 1 (for the default admin ID). Just use another user record as a sample for the data structure.

    Also, IIRC, set the user_pass field 'function' to MD5 so you can enter "plain" text for your password.

    I believe that will get you going, hope it helps ...
