Someone managed to delete all the user permissions from a SP2010 (sub)Site, including their own (this person was the only site admin).

How do you give (the site owner or an administrator account) access to this 'locked out' site?

1 Answer 1


You can manage the site collection administrators for each site collection in the central administration. A site collection administrator could then add the deleted users accounts and reset the permissions.
