How can I reinstate someone who has mysteriously become an ex member?

If the user deleted their profile, it is irreversible.  If it is do to them not being registered (for example you upgrade) "after" the forum start date/time, simply correct.

No they didn't delete.  They became an ex member  (just one person as far as I know) after I put the forum into maintenance mode briefly although I didn't do anything to the forum I just switched it off because of a disk problem with the server.

  Then it is possible their .vars file is corrupt (zero'd content) or deleted.  Replace from a Backup of your site.

Ah yes.  That is the problem. Their Vars file is 0. 

I don't have a back up, at least I don't think I do.  Is there a plan B?

I'll consider myself well and truly chastised.  I'm a dog trainer not a computer person.  That link doesn't mean a lot at the moment but I'll study it later.

Thank you.

Use that file structure to "manually" create (rebuild) the user vars file for the member who is an ex-member
