Solved Set up user with same email as admin (founder)

Technical Details


Forum version : #phpBB2

Concerned browser(s) : Safari
Who the problem concerns : Yourself
When the problem appeared : during setup

Description of problem

I just setup a new forum using my email. I now want to register myself up as a new, regular user so I can use the forum like everyone else (i.e., non-admin users).

But when I try to register as a new user it says my email is already in use. So how do I set this up? Do I have to use a separate email, or can I have two profiles (admin & user) using the one email?

Thanks.

When creating accounts, you can not use the same email addresses.

The topic was posted in the wrong section, so I have moved it to the correct section.

Like SLGray said you can't have more then one account with the same Email address as each account needs a Email address to link the account to.

Thanks... another question:

How can I give admin privileges to another (additional) user?
