Arrow Lost admin privileges

Hi,
I lost the admin privileges by changing the permissions of the main account. How can I restore them without reinstalling from scratch. I have access to the files in the server.
Thanks

You could run the query:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

This is assuming your are userID 1.

If you don't have SQL access, create a file and run it from the vBulletin directory:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

or for 3.0.x.

There is a tools.php in your don_not_upload folder of your vB zip-file. You can use that to restore admin permissions.
