when you have lost the password, got hacked, or you can't receive the lost
password email.

- Browse to your forum and log out if you aren't already. Register as a new user and login as this user.

- In the vBulletin's .zip file you can find a directory called 'do_not_upload/'. Inside this directory, there is a file called 'tools.php'. Upload this file into your forum's admincp/ directory. Then go to the admincp/tools.php with your browser.

- At the bottom of the tools page is an option to 'Reset Admin Access'. Run it with the just newly registered username.

- You have just made yourself admin and you need this because you should now login to the admincp/ and find the user who's password you have lost. Search for this user and when found you will see the whole profile. Including a password field. Set a new password.

- Go to the main forum and log out from the new user, and try to login with the old admin account. This should work now.

- When it works, go back into the admin control panel and find the newly registered user. The profile page will have a drop down in the top, from there select delete and delete the temporary admin.

- Then delete the tools.php file. It is a potential security risk if you leave it on the web site.
