Change of server name has locked out admin

Hi Everyone,

I recently changed the name of my server (for some reason it was so I have changed it to the actual hostname of the server it is installed on.

However no when I attempt to login to the admin console using the admin credentials I have used for years it is saying I have no access.

Anyone know why this might be?



Its ok I restored from a backup, would still be interesting to know why this happened if anyone knows.


If you are not using LDAP the user ID or JID is dependent on the server name (i.e admin@ vs admin@server.domain.com). When you cahnge the server name the JIDs that were already created are not changed.

Is this still the case in version 3.6.4. I just changed the server name and got the same results. What is the suggested method for getting a admin account logged back into the admin site?
