More than one site administrator

Postby sasutton » Sun Feb 25, 2007 12:56 pm

Is it possible to add a second site administrator after the system is up and running. I can find no means of doing so even within site management/administrative functions. But, I am new to OJS and may be overlooking the obvious.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Hi Stuart,

The Site Administrator role is the only role that can not be granted via the web interface. Typically there is only one admin account per installation, created at the time of installation, but if you want to grant an additional user admin privileges, you can insert the role manually into the database in the roles table using a journal_id of 0 and a role_id of 1.
