Magento is a very powerful and fast growing ecommerce script, created by Varien. It is an open-source platform using Zend PHP and MySQL databases. Magento offers great flexibility through its modular architecture, is completely scalable and has a wide range of control options that its users appreciate.
In this section, we are going to build a MySQL script that you can use for adding a new admin account within seconds.
It is recommended to have a salted password hash ready.
Paste into the MySQL script:
Don’t forget to set your own values on lines 4-8, 26, 27.
Note: If you use Magento CE 126.96.36.199-1.4.*, remove lines 16 and 17.
Now you are ready to run script:
That is it! Now you can execute script any time you need to add admin account.
If you are not comfortable using script than another way can meet your needs:
1. Click Insert button to make new admin_user record. Fill out necessary fields using existing record values and this manual as template.
2. Next we need to add record to admin_role table.
Here user_id – is ID of user that we have created. parent_id is role_id of Administrators record:
Test your new admin account.
