Note: this script works on Magento Open Source and 1.4.0.* but does not work in the Magento Commerce Edition

As a Magento development company, we have a number of designers, developers, and project managers that need admin access to the sites that we build. As opposed to using one global admin account for our entire team, we believe it to be a much better practice to assign individual admin accounts to each team member who is going to be working on a project.


One of our developers, Matt Johnson, has developed a script to allow us to easily add an admin user to a Magento installation. Each member of our team that needs Magento admin access has a sql file that adds their admin account to Magento. When we start a new project, we run the sql script for the members of our team that is going to need access to the server. I hope you’ll find this snippet useful.
