Well...

Is this Beta or Classic, and what server software are you using?

Once we know that, I'm sure we can help.

Op means Operator, which is another word for an admin, so follow the instructions to those videos.

Well...

That isn't completely true. Op has access to all server commands while an admin can have most but not all. On my beta server there are 4 ops, 2 admins, and 2 mods, each step up has slightly more commands than the last.

Administrator

You go to your server file, there should be a text document open them all until maybe it has only your username but there maybe be some others, once you find that text document if your not an admin type in your name and if your friends are not on the list type it in and then they'll also be an admin.

Post a Comment if this helped you!!!

Permissions

If you are using the most recent permissions for bukkit you will first need to make sure you have the group "admin" created. In the permissions folder in /plugins you need to open globalGroups.yml in a text editor such as Notepad++. Somewhere in that document you would make the group "admin" to look something like this...
groups:
    Admins:
        default: false
        info:
            prefix: 'Admin'
            suffix: ''
            build: true
        inheritance:
        permissions:
            - '*'
            - 'derp.herp'<strong>
You might notice that I have permissions set to '*'. This means that the group 'Admins' has all permissions availible in the server. Also derp.herp is an example of a permissions node used to give permissions to a group.
After you have the group created open globalUsers.yml using the same text editor. Inside this document you will need to have something like...
users:
    xZxYxV:
        groups:
        - Admins
        permissions: [herp.derp]<strong>
This shows that the user xZxYxV is in group 'Admins' and has an extra permission 'herp.derp'. Permissions creates user branches so that whenever someone logs in you can easily add them to another group.
You can make an unlimited amount of groups and can list more users than a server can hold using permissions. Just change the name of the group to whatever you would like. Sadly my YML spacing was despammed so that is not exactly how it is layed out.
OR I could have just pasted this link to the official Permissions Tutorial :)

/manuadd <name> admin

type /manuadd <playername> admin

this will add to admin list and with  permissions will automatically let them use every command
