Lost user name of administrator... --> how can I find it?

Hello everyone.

Hopefully this is the right place to ask this question and ask for your support and help:
We, a community of guys, are using ownCloud for sharing some files.
Working with our user accounts works fine, no problems so far.

I set up this ownCloud server in the past, and therefore I am the administrator. Unfortunately I lost both username and Password of the administrator account. I noted in on my computer, but had a computer crash a few weeks ago, with lots of lost files, including the administrator login…

Resetting the password shouldn’t a problem, I guess, but I simply cannot remember the user name of the administrator. Of course I tried admin, administrator, and so on… but nothing works.

Is there ANY CHANCE to find out the user name of the administrator account SOMEWHERE?

I need to add a few new guys and delete some old ones…

What can I do?

Thanks in advance for any help.

You should be able to find it in the MySQL database.
