Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OJS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Not sure if I am asking this question correctly. When OJS is installed there is the "admin" user that you setup. Then after that you can setup other users. Is there anyway to setup a 2nd user account with the same privileges as the first user account that gets created during OJS install?

I know I did n't see anything in the web interface but possible by changing a value in the database you can create another "admin" Or is it only user with user_id 1 that gets special privileges?
