    Modify the config file Via FTP or File Manager and insert their ID :

    $config['superAdmins'] = '1';

    What is the difference between a Super Administrator and an Administrator?
    A Super Administrator can not be created or edited by an Administrator and always has all permissions in the ACP.

    How do I add another Super Administrator?
    Edit the /library/config.php file and add any additional users IDs, comma delimited: $config['superAdmins'] = '1,2,3';
    Note that the user in question must already be an Administrator.


    Check their profile to get the user ID.
    It's the number at the end: http://xenforo.com/community/members/the-pet-board.9367/
