Default User Groups

Postby redders47 » Fri Mar 09, 2018 12:08 am

I am using Joomla 3.8.

I migrated an old site to my new one and with it came the problems I had created with User Groups on my old site.

I have searched for how to return the User Groups to the default groups that should be there at a new installation, but the one possible good answer I found (https://www.ostraining.com/blog/joomla/ ... er-groups/) did not help. I could not find the table in my data base referred to in the article.

Is there a way to return to the Default User groups without impacting on anyhting else???

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Richard

You should have a table xxx_viewlevels where xxx is your database prefix,usually the last table but not always.

looks like this.

Thank you. After posting I found the view levels table and the user groups table. The issue then becomes how do I add to these tables, and I think you need to understand mysql coding?? If so then I can go no further at this stage.

Thanks for the help.
