fix the database to recover the lost user

Post by luckyman »

There is one common issue for Pentacle In/Out Board.
Users names will disappear from the in/out board, but the name in the Administration Site User Manager where Admin still can modify or delete.

It is caused by the ACCESS database limitation.

Anyway, use this script to fix the problem and recover the users.

Download the attached file, unzip it and put it into the root folder, then just enter the url to run it and fix the problem.

Although this is quite an old post but the fix mentioned saved me. Although in the beginning, due to my foolishness I forgot to change the yourboardurl to the actual board name. Haha!
