I've installed fresh 1.9 CE Magento providing an admin user and password. I can login to backend, but when I want to create new user for admin access, there is a 'current admin password' and I cannot create new user because the new user has not current password and this field is mandatory. How can I create a new admin user? What I'm missing?

1 Answer 1


It's the current admin password of the user you are logged in with, not the one you are about to create.

  • Thank you! logical, but I had not thought about it
