You need give the user Paul permission to do things. The easiest way to 
give him a lot of permissions at once is through config.php. You replace 
the encrypted passwords in the file with id:Paul. (Fine print: haven't 
done it in a while, best check the AuthUser documentation to be sure.)

Search config.php for the word "pass" to make sure you got everything. 
Not all the passwords are together.
