Admin access lost

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

To start with I'm a FM beginner so excuse my question.

 

I'm using FMPro 11 on a Mac.

 

I created a db and started playing around with while trying to learn FM. I created a new user and gave that account admin rights (full access).

Afterwords I removed that user from the user list as it was just for testing.

 

My Mac managed to crash and after restarting it I noticed that I was not able to access my db anymore. I tried to create a new db and then add

the testuser I had before and that way managed to open my previous db. The problem now is that I can not edit my database because the user I

added does not have full access to the db and the "manage" button is greyed out so I can change the settings.

 

Is there a way to add a user that is a default user with full permission for all databases?

It seams to me that you set accounts and rights to each database separately?

I don't know if you understand my question but I don't really know how to explain this.

 

Thanks in advance,

BR

No, there is no way you can set one account on multiple FM files.

>If you have lost the ability to access the database with full access for whatever reason ( removed the full access account, forgot the password, crash that corrupted the security settings ) their is nothing you can do to recover without destroying the file

>> When you create a new file a full access account is also created. What you do with tthe full access account after that is up to you for every file.
