    My mac runs Lion server - I inadvertently made my account a standard user (by unchecking the check box :allow user to administer this server" in the server app) - and now I can't change my settings anymore or install new apps

    I can't log in to server app or change anything in system preferences (because I am no longer an administrator, and neither are any of the other users)

    how can I fix this ?

    thanks

    thanks balamw, I've figured out how to boot in single user mode, but how can I change user settings and make myself an administrator again from the command line ?
