Hi Stavros,

if you work with someone else on a website or if you create a website for someone else and want the person to be able to also modify or update the content - then it makes sense to create another administor for the account.

Makes sense?

Happy coding!

Nils

Hi Nels,

Thanks for reply,

it makes senses, but if you work on web site as administrator and create another admin account may be occur a pronlem to make changes and other administrator make changes upon your changes. Maybe confusion occur when both administrators worjing on the same web site.

May be needs to be defined what tasks to be executed by each adminstritor in order each admin not toach other admininstrator work

Well, if you work with someone on the same site and the other person is changing things that should not be changed... Of course, that creates trouble. ;-)

So I think you both should be clear about what you want if you are both administrator.

But I give you a direct example for when to use two administrators: For my own business website I am using wordpress. When I decided to use it I had no knowledge about wordpress I asked a friend to help me (because he is a professional wordpress coach). So he installed and configured all the basics for the website and the theme. And for that he needed to be "administrator". But I also needed to be administrator of course, because I want to be able to configure everything later on and maybe even change the theme etc. So I also needed to be administrator and there we had two administrators.

Makes sense?
