Deleted Keymaster

    Don’t ask me how (I always find a way to do stuff like this), but I managed to delete the keymaster for my forum. :-)

    Since my forum is “live” and I don’t want to lose posts, re-installing isn’t really an option for me. Is there some way I can modify the database directly to grant keymaster permissions to an existing user?

    In bb_usermeta, I found a column with data like this: a:1:{s:6:"member";b:1;} that I think might be the key to doing what I want, but changing the word “member” to “keymaster” doesn’t seem to do the trick. What should I do?

    Here’s mine:

    a:2:{s:8:”throttle”;b:1;s:13:”administrator”;b:1;}

    Mine is in wp_usermeta though since I am integrated (not sure if that matters or not.)

    Also, “administrator” is there since I changed /bb-includes/capabilities.php to make the title administrator rather than key master. Did you make a similar change in your capabilities.php?

    It’s also possible that this might help you:
