Two parts:

How can I tell which WP user is an administrator via phpmyadmin?

I need to create a new admin user via phpmyadmin. The few sites I found that list the steps and the query seem to have problems with the code (as I read the comments on those pages). And I've not done a query before.

I've taken a backup of the database, and this site is on WordPress 3.8.5
