1. Register as a new user to your board but do not log in
2. Using your database administration panel on your hosting server find the new user in the "users" table
3. Edit that user to have user_type=3 and group_id=5
4. Save these changes (this has just given the new user admin priviledges)
5. Log in to your board as the new user
6. From ACP "Manage users"
7. Reset the password for your original user
8. Log in as your original user and make sure you have rights to ACP
