I have an old site built in Drupal 6 and I need to add a new admin user. I cannot give out user #1 and need a new one.

As far as roles go, I have authenticated and anonymous.

Is it as simply as adding a new role and granting full access or is there something a little easier I can do to accomplish this?

Admin role with this module you can add more super users.

This module is a little helper to maintain an administrator role which has all available permissions. By default, Drupal only has one super user and this module helps improve this drastically.

  • I just created a role and granted full access because I didn't want to make any file changes in prod, but I've accepted your answer as I think it would work great! Commented Oct 10, 2013 at 12:56
