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.
