Hacking Into Forums
 
Hi, I am the main admin, and only admin of a forum. However, one of the users at the forum hacked my account, and changed my password, so I couldn't log back in! Does anyone here know how I can hack back into forums and change passwords or anything of that such? I could really use the help.

As you have mot mentioned the type of forum nor you have mentioned the backend of your database I have some general solutions like

1. If you have access to database
Get into the database and change the password back again to something else. If its encrypted have a new user registered and have the new users encrypted password as your one and now your password is reset.

2. If you don't have access to the database directly
Now if you have access to your server using FTP have a file that will do the needful for you.

3. If you don't have both of them then you are in deep deep trouble.

Just a query what forum software you are using?

Even a free host has that as well.
