Q: I accidentally deleted the admin user.  How can I get back in as admin?

A: If you have access to the database  (using a tool like SSMS, etc) then un-delete the user:

  update Customer
  set Deleted = 0
  where Id = 1

(Typically the Id for Admin is 1, but if not, then find Id, or use the Username - e.g
  where Username = '[email protected]'
)

Q. How can I re-assign an email address if I've deleted the customer?

A.  There is a setting that will Suffix a customer email with "-DELETED" when the record is deleted

All Settings - customersettings.suffixdeletedcustomers

Out of the box, the setting is FALSE.  If you deleted the customer prior to making the change to TRUE, then you need to manually suffix the email using a SQL tool (e.g. SSMS)
