How to reset admin access - Lost all Admin access

Hi
I’m not shure that this i the right forum, but I’m trying:
Running Openfire 4.6.4 on MS SQL db. With AD integration.
Chat server is running, no users have noticed disruptions.
We think that some one by accident have cleared the list of administrators.

We have looked at db tabels and local files on the server to se if we can roll backup either db og server to a point with admin access, but haven’t found a clue.

Any better idea ?

you coud add a user directly to the openfire database > table ofUser
or you start setup again and set an admin (use the same database will keep your preferences then)…

The Admin users are in the db.
If I try to log on as a non admin user i can see it in the logs that access has been denied.
If I or we try to logon as admin, it keeps trying to connect, Forever. And nothing is commited to logs.

Then i would run setup again…
you could do this by changing the tag “setup” to “false” in the openfire.xml which you will find in the openfire/conf dir. After that restart openfire and setup will be started on port 9090.
The next step is to setup OF again, use the same preferences as you did on the first time and at the last page you are able to set a new admin.
