[MediaWiki-l] administrator/sysop permission [solved]

Never mind. I edited the LocalSettings.php file on my local machine 
where I originally created a replica of the new wiki site before backing 
it up and restored it at the actual VM host after reimaging. Then I 
thought I changed it at the VM host. I added the second line to allow it 
for 'sysop' now at the real site and it's working.

Since at Special:UserRights I don't see 'sysop' but it worked, I think I 
just confirmed "adminitrator = sysop" as described in some discussions 
on the internet. Mediawiki's doc pages are not particularly clear about 
how to construct $wgGroupPermissions in the LocalSettings.php file.
