Cannot add additional users for CMS

I'm OK with the original user created with I uploaded the site, but now I'd like to add a few users to help with content. I created two users in cpanel, assigned them to the database with "all privileges" and yet neither can log in. What did I miss?

do not create the users using cpanel.

in the CMS Admin section, click the manage users link. Use the Add User to create a New Admin user for Power CMS.

You can only have multiple users in Power CMS.

Easy upgrade Site Sculpter to Power CMS?

I'm pretty happy with my site built with Site Sculptor...I'm considering upgrading to Power CMS if only to allow managed users to update the pages.

Since SS was decribed as a limited edition of Power CMS, I really hope that installing Power CMS is a seamless process without any major work or damage to my live site.

Is it a straight-forward operation?

on the Site Sculptor support page, there is a tutorial for updating Site Sculptor to use Power CMS 2.0.1. the latest version of Power CMS is 2.1.1 though, so there are a couple extra steps that are not listed in that how to.

follow through the how to, then also complete these steps:

1) From the Power CMS Download files, open the /Templates folder. Copy the Admin.dwt.php file and the Themes folder. past those into the /Templates folder on your server.

2) From the Power CMS Download files, Open the /WACMS folder. Copy all of the files in this folder and paste them to the /WACMS folder on your site to over write them.

3) step 10 - 12 of the how to has you copy the CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/menu.css file, you should copy all of the files in the CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/ folder from the Power CMS Download files and paste them to the CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/ folder on your server.
