wordpress admin account problem

Post by vinmansbrew » 2018/04/26 15:26:25

So, I have a wordpress server. I didn't set it up, and as usual, the previous admin left little documentation.
One of the wordpress sites had an additional admin added and he apparently went in and did clean up. You see where this is going. It looks like he deleted my admin user so now I cannot access the site to update it, ect.

I DO have full server access. I'd like to know if/how I can go into the server and create a new admin account using terminal.
Also, probably important, the php database is on a different server.
Any one go through an issue like this?

I recommend to create your admin account in the database directly and delete his account too.
