I was changing my profile on the forum of my SS install. I changed the e-mail, and now if I try to log into SS with either the new e-mail, or the old e-mail, it says that the e-mail or password is incorrect. How can I recreate the admin user?

You can hard code a admin member for your site by adding the following lines to your mysite/_config.php

Security::setDefaultAdmin('admin', 'somepassword');

That will enable you to login

Thanks! I've logged in and recreated the admin user.

lol, i just did this myself, it's embarrassing, like locking yourself out of your car.

I went into the database and changed permission groups there, but the above way seams much better.
