I need to write some code to create a sharepoint site, create a specific Member, Visitor, and Owners group and add a user to the owner's group.
I have the code to create the site, but I can't figure out how to create the 3 groups and add a user to one of the groups.
Thanks
Ron

You have to use the SpGroup class:

Adding users is done with the AddUser method:
