Reproduction Steps:
On the fresh install, after the MySQL setup, try and create the admin user via the web GUI. When submitting the form, an error page is shown complaining about “Call to undefined method PhabricatorUserEditor::makeAdminUser()”

Same issue when using the script scripts/user/account_admin.php (bot=N, admin=Y)


The method makeAdminUser has been recently removed from PhabricatorUserEditor :
This method is still referenced in :

  • scripts/user/account_admin.php
  • src/applications/auth/controller/PhabricatorAuthRegisterController.php

Restoring the makeAdminUser method in PhabricatorUserEditor seems to fix the issue (the admin account is created)


Thanks for the report. fixes your particular issue, and the other callsites will be fixed shortly.
