Admin Account Issue...
« on: August 09, 2007, 08:16:00 am »

I already know that I am a n00b so start laughing now.  ;D

I can not access my admin account for several reasons.  #1 - I lost my login information.  #2 - The email I have listed in that account is no longer a valid email address.  My Web host, like me, serves in the military and will be away for several more months.  I did not install my Coppermine Gallery and do not know the server information to do any type of re-install, nor would I know how anyway.

BUT... I still have FTP access to my Coppermine Gallery V1.4.9 that is hosted at .

My question is... Is there anyway to "repair, reset or replace" my admin account through FTP?

Any and all help will be gratefully appreciated.

Thank you.
