    Is it possible that someone you know has gained access to your account and changed your password?

    Restore from a recent backup, then, then log in to your account and change your password then enable two step authentication on your account. Also change all your other passwords just in case. I recommend using a different password for each account. Hopefully you're not using the same password on your forum as you are on CloudFlare or similar.

    Edit config.php, stop the stolen admin account from being a super administrator, make the other admin account a super administrator, then you can edit the stolen admin account in the Admin CP.

    $config['superAdmins'] = '1';

    and add the User ID number at the end as shown below:-

    Save the file and reupload via your FTP (overwriting the existing file).
    Not sure what you mean?

    Your config.php is located on the server which is located in the library directory. Locate the line which reads:-

    $config['superAdmins'] = '1';
