    lost all admin access!, by ggrigoli

    Hello, not sure if I am posting this to the correct forum. Also I am very new to all things website related and WP so this might be confusing.

    I took over control of website http://www.yungchenlhamo.org from the developer. I accessed the domain control panel through his log-in and downloaded WP. I thought I created an account under my own email. I stored my theme in /htdocs/ sort of accidentally.
    Everything was going great until I went to the admin section of the WP dashboard and saw that the original developers email was set for the admin email. I changed it to my personal email, and also removed the /htdocs/ from the website url and pressed OK. I encountered an Error page but also received an email from [email protected] stating that I had changed the admin email address. http://www.yungchenlhamo.org/htdocs/ is now showing an error page and I wasn’t able to login to WP through my email address. I even used the developers Word Press account but my website isn’t listed there. I haven’t been able to access the theme at all.

    So at this point I’m not sure what to do. I just created this account to post this question. I’m not sure if my only option at this point is to just recreate the theme under my new account but I figured I would ask for help before doing that.

    Thanks to anyone who can help!

    lost all admin access!
