shortcode - Make yourself Wordpress admin using SQL ๐Ÿ”‘โšก๏ธ

I recently ran into an issue where I wasn't the admin in a Wordpress install, and after running this bit of SQL, I was quickly back in command:

INSERT INTO `wp_users` (`user_login`, `user_pass`, `user_nicename`, `user_email`, `user_status`)
VALUES ('ryo', MD5('easy123'), 'firstname lastname', 'ryo@example.com', '0');

INSERT INTO `wp_usermeta` (`umeta_id`, `user_id`, `meta_key`, `meta_value`) 
VALUES (NULL, (Select max(id) FROM wp_users), 'wp_capabilities', 'a:1:{s:13:"administrator";s:1:"1";}');

INSERT INTO `wp_usermeta` (`umeta_id`, `user_id`, `meta_key`, `meta_value`) 
VALUES (NULL, (Select max(id) FROM wp_users), 'wp_user_level', '10');

Hope that helps, Ryo
