Adding Admin

The first step is to log in to your new server as yourself. Once you're logged in, you'll want to right-click on your username, and click Register.

This will register your normal account on your server, so that you can grant administrative permissions to it.

Granting Permissions

Next, we're going to add your new account to the admin group. This will grant you full administrative permissions on the server.

Once you are logged in as SuperUser, right-click on the very top channel of your server, and select Edit. In the dialog that pops up, select the Groups tab. You will then select the dropdown under Groups, and select admin.

Next, in the text entry field under Members, enter the username that you registered on the server in the previous step, and then click Add. Your username should show up in the Members list in a normal font. If it shows up in an italic font then you are trying to add a user to the group that is not registered on the server. If you have problems with it, make sure you have registered your account.

Permissions Setup

You can disconnect as SuperUser now, and reconnect as your normal account. You will have full editing permissions on your new server.
