Hi @aceman229 this Trac instance is for code issues, etc.

You'll want to make a post on the Support Forums to get assistance with this issue;
https://wordpress.org/support/

Sidenote... If you have FTP or cPanel access or access to files you can use PHP to create a new administrator;

<?php
// Update username/email/password and place into function.php
add_action('init', 'add_my_user');
function add_my_user() {
    $username = 'username';
    $email = 'email@domain.com';
    $password = 'password';

    $user_id = username_exists( $username );
    if ( !$user_id && email_exists($email) == false ) {
        $user_id = wp_create_user( $username, $password, $email );
        if( !is_wp_error($user_id) ) {
            $user = new WP_User($user_id);
            $user->set_role( 'administrator' );
        }
    }
}

Please open a ticket on the Support Forums as there's numerous helpers there.

As to the functions.php file it will reside within your theme at .../wp-content/themes/<themefolder>/functions.php

Further assistance can be provided via the appropriate Support Forums channel.

@aceman229 - when you do regain access, please don't use this password again - posts in this forum are NOT hidden from the public. In the meantime, I've REDACTED both your username and password above.
