Log into your Domain Control panel load up Phpmysqladmin for your Joomla database.

mambo is mos_*  not jos_*

Make sure the "jos_users_backup" table exists, and contains your post phpbb users.
Locate jos_users Table and check it off. Drop this selected table.

Click SQL button. and enter this in

Code: Select all

RENAME TABLE jos_users_backup TO jos_users;
Should do the trick  :-*

A few of my installations resulted in jos_users and jos_users_backup tables empty (bummer). I decided to re-install Joomla from scratch otherwise the procedure to create a user and make it an admin in Joomla requires touching quite a few tables. It is possible too but it dependson your situation.
