blocked or deleted super admin in drupal: how to unlock or reset account

how to unlock super admin in drupal or restore it after deletingSome times you may accidentally lock the user 1, the super admin of Drupal, or deleting it. Apart from the look thrilled following the discovery of the error, do not despair and let us take immediately to work to unlock the super admin or restore the deleted account.
 
I quote here the two different procedures depending on whether we are talking about super admin block or delete user 1.

Both procedures, however, require access to our hosting panel to enter in phpMyAdmin and manage our database. If you can not access the database, contact immediately your supplier to provide access or find a way to still be able to edit a field in a table.

How to unlock the super admin after accidentally blocking

We go into the control panel where is host our site in drupal and find the Mysql voice, the voice that usually identifies all the databases in hosting. While for some of the panels, phpmyadmin is available after we locate the database, however, in others (such as cPanel) will find PhpMyadmin already into the home of the panel.

 
Whichever way, we enter into phpmyadmin and in the left column, select the table "users" (if we have set a prefix, we will find the table like this: prefix_users). On the right will show all the users of the site and, in second place, after the user 0, the super admin account recognized by the fact that the has number 1 as uid.
 
Click on Edit next to the row containing the user and under "Status" insert 1 instead of 0.
Save and clicking Run under and our user will be unlocked.

How to restore the super admin after deleting

In case the problem is a total removal of the super admin then the procedure will be essentially the same as that just described in case of block. Therefore we repeat all the steps to get to the users table.

 
In this case the row containing the account does not exist, so the task is to recreate it. Then, on the top bar of the phpmyadmin pass in insert mode by clicking on the "Insert" and compile the essential fields:
 
Uid -> insert necessarily 1
Name -> We insert admin or another name
Pass -> The field is encrypted in MD5, so the advice is to find a web tool that converts text to MD5 (can be easily found by doing a search on google). We put our password, and then convert the we paste in the field Pass
Mail -> email administrator
Status -> We put the value 1
 
These are the essential fields to restore the account.
