Hi there,

I was wondering if anybody could help me out. I just installed the SharePoints 3.5.1 application for Panther, and I accidentally deleted my admin account from the "admin" group. The only thing now listed under the "admin" group is "root" (although I have not yet enabled a root account for the machine).

I can't add my account back into the "admin" group because I don't have an administrator account anymore. Because I have deleted my admin account from the "admin" group, when I go into the Accounts system preference, it lists me as a "standard user" and I can't add any more users because it says I doesn't have an administration password. I can't enable the root account either, because of the same problem. I also can't repair permissions because I am not an administrator.

Any ideas on how I can fix this accidental problem I created for myself?

Thanks!
Scott

I was able ot figure this one out. I booted from the Tiger installation CD (I imagine the Panther CD would have worked too), and chose to reset the password for the root account. Even though a root account wasn't enabled before, doing this enabled the root account & allowed me to add myself back into the "admin" group again. Problem solved!
