Membership plugin settings not visible

See community post:

I’m an admin/super admin on my site, and something has gone wrong…and I can no longer access the Membership Settings menu. (yes, the plugin IS installed, and it is activated, and working) I’ve uninstalled/reinstalled the plugin, I’ve dropped the tables via myphpadmin, re-added them back, etc, but nothing works. I also ftp’d into the site, renamed the plugin and reinstalled and still nothing works. How can I regain access to the settings area while logged in as a wordpress admin user? Is there a table setting somewhere I can edit to identify that my userid is a membership admin? Desperate for a fix here.
