G'day,

Can someone please explain the concepts of Administrators and Super User to me?

Can there be more than one Super User?

When I make an account an Administrator, I have to specify the modules that they are allowed to administer. Is there a way for me to say, "They can administer all modules." Is that what Super User is for?

Best Regards, Lloyd Borrett.

Yep, Super User will have permissions to everything including database backups.

G'day,

Thanks for your prompt reply, but your answer is ambiguous to me. Maybe I didn't ask the question properly.

Can there be more than one Super User?

If so, by making them a Super User, can I ignore specifying all of the "permissions" on the Administrator Control page?

Is this the purpose of the Super User classification?

Best Regards, Lloyd Borrett.

Yes, you can crate as many super users you like.
Super user will have access to everything, you can ignore to select the modules lists.

Super users will also have access to your database backup as well.
