adding new admin users

ok step one is to download the profiles table from your SQL database.

next edit the user that you what to give admin rights:


ID, 'member', '', 'c72e91387791dc466383e7a0b380de6', 'Active', CHANGE THIS FROM 1 (OR WHAT EVER IT IS)  TO 3, 0, 'male', 'female', 'headline', '<p>description</p>', 'GB', 'town', '1991-07-13', 1, '2009-07-27 20:32:52', '2009-07-28 20:44:43', '2009-08-11 21:13:30', '2009-08-11 21:22:50', 0, 'TAGS 'ZIP', 0, 0, 0, 19, 0, 0, 1, 3, 'online', 'message', 124935835, 2, '', '', '', '', '', '', 'Single', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '1st name', '2nd name', 0),

so it will look something like this

2, 'Darkcloud4491', ', 'c72e91387791dc1c2c3a0b380de6', 'Active', 3, 0, 'male', 'female', 'NEVER EAT PAINT', '<p>So i''m me thats who i am</p>', 'GB', 'Exeter', '1991-07-13', 1, '2009-07-27 20:32:52', '2009-07-28 20:44:43', '2009-08-11 21:13:30', '2009-08-11 21:22:50', 0, 'cool, owner, hot, chill, chips, cake, sleep', 'EX364LL', 0, 0, 0, 19, 0, 0, 1, 3, 'online', 'admin like stuff', 1249935835, 2, '', '', '', '', '', '', 'Single', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', 'Michael', 'Howard', 0),


use Notepad++, Notepad, or Visual Web 08 express. the user can then login to the admin panel. (

You just love making things sound complex.. don't you?

You could have just told them to use phpMyAdmin to edit the user record in the 'Profiles'table.

Just edit any user record and change the 'Role' field value to '3'
yeah but some people need to be told how to do that
Oh.... BTW... Do you see anything fundamentally wrong with your procedure? I sure do. I'm not going to tell you what it is though... see if you can figure it out:)
yeah i'm preaty sure they know to insert/update the table if thats what your on about (and this dose work coz i have done this)
Remember like Houston said "KISS" (keep it simple stupid). It is understood by many of us what you were explaining, However, you should explain the NET result or NET action of your explanation instead of HOW you figured it out. In that way your posts, which ARE informative and HELPFUL, will be more easily understood by the "noobies" here.

Thanks for your post.
