I've lost the host password for my dnn website, I have the admin password but not not the host. I don't have access to the database either it's MS SQL database but at this point I can't connect to it.

Can anyone help?

Hi Sebastion,

Thanks but I don't have access to the database as yet. I'm not totally sure who's hosting the site.

Hi Richard,

Yes I saw that one myself but it won't let me upload the .aspx file it says it's "A restricted file type". I can change the extension to .xml and I can upload it fine but that's no use to me. I have ftp access and I was able to ftp the .aspx up but I wasn't able to put it on the a page it wouldn't show it to me.
