How can I restore admin capabilities?

So yeah, I’m a genius. I managed delete all my admin capabilities (thank you very much Membership plugin). I could restore them, …if I had admin access, lol.

Anywhoo, how can I give all my capabilities back to admin? I have access to the database via PHPMyAdmin but have no idea where or what to add back to the DB.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

The string below actually represents an array in serialized form.


a:1 means an array with a single element
s:13 means string and the length of the string followed by

     "administrator" => "1"

Once that is in the table, you can use the unserialize() function to return it to an array for use in your code.

Many thanks.
