Well, I managed to lock myself out of my website while attempting to change the Admin password...GENIUS!

I attempted to change the password by editing the account properties and "it did something" (read: I had done something stupid and didn't realize it) and that was it...NO ADMIN FOR YOU...NEXT!

Is there anything in the code (using version 1.2.2 Production Release of the MWPSK), that I can delete within Visual Studio that will allow me access so that I can modify the site or anything else short of starting over.

If starting over is the only way, will someone please call 911 and tell them that some desperate fool is out on the ledge?

Your help would be reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeealy appreciated!

Thank you,

Dr. Dumass

Download the Mwpsk.

Install it somewhere as a test.

Copy the Users XML for the admin node.

Backup the users XML on your prod site.

Paste the copied node into your prod site.

That might work.

Where should I send your check? :)

At least you could have made it sound more difficult so that I could retain some ego! I would tell you what lengths I went to in an effort to retain all the work that had been done on the site, but would rather not flaunt my ignorance anymore than I already have,

Thank you very much!
