## Creating an admin account ## Creating an admin account
### In the browser
After signing up in the browser, you will need to use the command line to give your newly created account admin privileges. Assuming your username is `alice`:
```bash
RAILS_ENV=production bin/tootctl accounts update alice --role admin
```
### From the command line
You can create a new account using the command line interface.
```bash
RAILS_ENV=production bin/tootctl accounts create \
alice \
--email alice@example.com \
--confirmed \
--role admin
```
A randomly generated password will be shown in the terminal.
