I disabled the the local admin account on my vps by mistake and it was the only active account on it, and now I can't access to my server by remote desktop connection.

How do I fix this?

Does your VPS host give you any other access to the machine, via say, VNC or some other console emulator? – Mark Henderson Aug 18 '11 at 11:21

You can't. You need console access to boot in to safe mode, wich many VPS providers have via control panels etc.

Call your VPS provider.
