I recently tested a skin that inadvertently removed modules from pages that I visited so I could set up the pages in the new format. Obviously I stopped using the skin ASAP and removed it from my system, but not before I had visited a couple of important pages in the Admin and Host menus.

Consequently, I am missing the main site-settings module in the Admin section ie (Basic Settings, Advanced Settings, User Account Settings, Stylesheet Editor). Unfortunately the modules didn't end up in the recycling bin they were just removed. I was able to reinstate a couple of the Host Modules by going into the tabs tables in the DB and adding them back in, but I haven't been able to do the same with the Admin - Site Settings.

Can anyone, provide any advice/assistance in adding the module back. (And I tried the site-settings module that is installable but that is actually the module from the Advanced Config Settings page not the Site Settings page).

I hope this makes sense. I know it was a stupid idea to test the skin on a non dev site, but I can't do much about it now.


Thanks in advance.

AFAIR site settings isnt a packaged module it's simply part of the distribution - run the following sql to check if it's still there: select * from ModuleDefinitions where FriendlyName='Site Settings' .

Here's how I check it's there on my machine -i first see if the site settings tab is there, then use it's tabid to check what modules are on the page, then use the moduleid to see what the moduledefinition is and finally use that to see the site settings

select * from tabs where tabname like '%Site Setting%'
select * from TabModules where tabid=67
select * from modules where moduleid=442
select * from ModuleDefinitions where FriendlyName='Site Settings'
