I have installed Askbot and registered two users. Neither of them seems to be an admin because I do not see admin only features such as settings link at the top of the page. So do I really have no admin? If so, how can I create one?

I am sure that I only have two users and no one else because when I went into shell and printed out


I only get exactly two users neither of whom is an admin.

I wonder why I cannot post an answer ... the page refreshes and I get the same state as before hitting Post Your Answer

Could it be because I have little karma and the answer contained a link?
