Administering a large site or forum takes a lot of time. As a result, it may become necessary to give administrator rights to several verified users who are able to jointly resolve all issues of managing an Internet resource.
Before you delegate administrator privileges to someone, consider the possible implications of this step. A person with administrator rights can easily take these rights away from you. Recovering them after that can be very difficult, if not impossible.
In the event that you are a site administrator, the easiest and most reliable option is to share your account information with the person you want to give administrator privileges to. In this case, there is no need to create several administrators, since several people can successfully work under one account without interfering with each other.
If you are a forum administrator, you can give admin rights to any user through the control panel. The specific sequence of actions depends on the engine used, but the general principle is the same: select the desired user and set the necessary rights to him. Usually, it is enough to select the desired option from the drop-down list. You can assign as many administrators as needed.
When appointing administrators, take care of the security of the resource, since the more administrators there are, the higher the likelihood of hacking. If the newly appointed administrators have static ip-addresses, use the bind to ip option - this will prevent a stranger from using the stolen password and login. The bind to ip option is available on many engines.
Be sure to instruct new admins on what their passwords should be. A correct password must have at least eight characters, be typed in different registers, and contain letters, numbers, and special characters. It is best to use a special generator to create a password; it can be found on the Internet.
The easiest way to lose a site or forum is to stay on it with an administrator account. A huge number of sites have vulnerabilities that allow a more or less experienced hacker to steal your cookies, which will allow him to enter your resource with administrator powers. The more administrators, the higher the risk. Therefore, it is even better for an administrator to be on the forum under the account of a simple user or moderator, logging in as an administrator only to manage the resource.
