Question Restore a deleted user

2 months 2 weeks ago #1 by maxstorch
By mistake, I deleted a user from Joomla. After this the user has registered in Joomla once more, but all his previous messages in Kunena forum are shown now without avatar and profile. Is it possible to connect the new user to the old one? If this is impossible, can I restore the old user and his profile?

Thanks in advance to your help.

If you delete a user then the user is gone. Joomla has no option to restore deleted users. You can restore the user if you have a database backup, otherwise it looks no good.

It seems I have a database backup. Can you give me a hint how to export the deleted user to the current database?

And is it possible for the site administrator to edit avatar of another user?

Thank you for help, I am just a beginner in Joomla. I am ready to donate to Kunena development.

If you delete a user, he will removed from the Joomla tables *__users and *__user_usergroup_map
Have you experience with phpMyAdmin?

1.) Open the __user table with phpMyAdmin and add a new user
Add all relevant informations from the deleted user in the fields (such as ID, register date and so on..). You find this informations in your backup file if you to open this with a text editor such as notepad plus.

2.) Add this user ID to the table *__user_usergroup_map

3.) Go in backend to Kunena -> Tools and to synchronize the users and recount all statistics (that's all, the user should be back again).

Important! Create a new databse backup previously! For interventions in the database, I take no guarantee! If a mistake happens it can to destroy the entire page!
