Hi, We have an issue that a former employee deleted user logins to Limesurvey and we are unable to use at all.

We have access to the server using SSH.

Can anyone out there help us get back into LS?

For version 1.7 or later:
- Restore your /<your limesurveydir>/admin/install/ directory from the download package.
- Execute resetadminpw.php using your browser by pointing it to
http://www.your_domain.com/your_limesurvey_dir/admin/install/resetadminpw.php

After removing the /install directory again you should be able to login with $defaultuser (Default: admin) and $defaultpass (Default: password) set in config.php.
=>finded here (contains a description about how to proceed with older versions...)

There will be no backup of the deleted logins, but you should be able to re-set a password as pointed out above.
