My pass­word isn’t good enough

Mac Format - - APPLE TALK -

I have up­graded my Mac mini Server to Yosemite. Hav­ing been told my server soft­ware won’t work, I up­graded that as well. Now when I try to load the app, it says “Ad­min­is­tra­tor ac­cess is re­quired to set up OS X Server on this Mac”, and asks for my pass­word but won't ac­cept it. Is there any way I can re­solve this? I am not a com­puter guru. I only bought the Mac a cou­ple of months ago to teach my­self about servers and keep the old old grey cells tick­ing over. Keith English It sounds as if your user ac­count lacks ad­min­is­tra­tor priv­i­leges. Open Sys­tem Pref­er­ences -> Users & Groups. Your user name should say ‘Ad­min’ un­der­neath. If it says ‘Stan­dard’, log in from an Ad­min ac­count and try again.
