OpenFire : Locked out due to LDAP user change

I changed the LDAP authentication user in OpenFire (via the console/GUI), i tried doing a test when i was still in and it didn't do anything. I got distracted with another task and by the time i returned to it my session had expired. Now I am unable to login, i am suspecting the new user i put in is not an Admin in OpenFire. Any way to change the LDAP configuration from the Database? or any other Hack to get back in?

I am running OpenFire 3.8.0 with AD integration and SQL Server DB.
Any help with this would be appreciated.

That didn't work.
I was able to figure this out with a re-install which solved the problem.
I had someone else recommend modifying the table "ofProperty" , which possibly would hav e worked but i don't think i was entering the DN's correctly.
Anyways, thanks for your input.

You may have to edit the database to solve this one authorizedJIDs is stored in the database. Find the record, delete it and rerun setup.

Another solution at bottom of this post, though it is a different version.

I had to get help from an external consultant who suggested I do what I indicated in the solution.
