Did he dissolve the Senate and place control in the hands of Regional Moffs?

Now joke aside

Are you a Co-Admin, the real admin whom has been stripped of power? etc etc

*You* are the site owner? Did you give him ftp access? Server access?

Yes, but since then, things have gotten a little south,.... as mentioned out of control.

Need to get control back. He has given himself super admin rights???? unable to delete or remove, or change them.

Change the ftp, the cpanel and edit the config file.

Yeah, take away his access to the server. If you need help with that, talk to your host.

That part is easy, however, when trying to adjust his permissions I recieve THIS:


Sorry, this user is protected from being altered in the config.php file by the $config['SpecialUsers']['undeletableusers'] variable.

?????

Looks like this is a mod of some sort that he has installed

No, he did not install a mod for that. That is a line in your config.php file that you may modify. However, I would not suggest modifying it while he still has access to get in and change it because he will just change it again.

As Lynne says......once you are sure he no longer has FTP access, you need to FTP to your config.php file. Look for the line special users/undeletable users......it will have his user id number there.......change it to your user id number.
