How do I fix the 'Activate local password login' back to 'true' in the askbot settings if I am locked out of the site?

I apparently disabled all authentication methods via the ui - and now I cannot get back onto the site.
I assume there is a way to set this in the settings on the server/in the file system. how can i do that. it is not obvious to me where those settings are. thanks

While this is not really an answer, I just clicked on the "recover password" link at the bottom of the login page. And then the email I received let me click a link and I was logged in automagically. I was then able to put back the local login.

So this was a way to circumvent the login process
