How do I become confluence admin?

I have just setup hosted confluence - I am the only user.

I am not a confluence admin, and consequently cannot make myself one.

I need to become one to install plugins .

Can anyone help?

Hi Tom,

If you're not currently a member of the administrators group then you can follow the instructions in this document to create a new user with admin permissions, or even just assign admin permissions to your current user depending on how you prefer to do it: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Restoring+Passwords+To+Recover+Admin+User+Rights

All the best,
John

You cannot install plugins on OnDemand, and the administrators role is limited to Atlassian.

See https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/AOD/Restricted+Functions+in+Atlassian+OnDemand for the details of what you can and cannot do.
