Everyrhing went swimmingly well, except that now I can not log in as administrator. As far as I can remember, I was prompted for only one username, and a password with verification, plus the data folder and so on. When I log in with that user (“dennis”), I do not seem to have administrative privileges. List of users only produces one row, and this is also confirmed in the oc_users table (mysql SELECT * FROM OC_USERS;)
with being any of: www-data, root, admin, Admin, ADMIN
all end up with a “User does not exist” message.
Again, this is a brand new installation so I would have no objection to wiping out the config and starting over, but I have not seen such instructions. Where can I go from here? System is not much good for me without an administrator since there are features I need to install for my particular goal.
Ugh. Looks like “greyed out” is the norm here, and I do have administrative functions after all. I was able to add users and enable apps, so I guess I’m OK. I apologize for the beginning-pains, this just seems so different from what I remember (version 8) and I panicked. I apologize. Thanks again for your help! In V8, there was a link in a bottom corner (right, I think) that let one choose administration mode. I’ll get used to this.
