You have to add the "superuser" account to the wiki instance's "wikiconfig.py" 
file (or "<instance_name>.py" file if you're running a farm.  The line looks 
like this:

superuser = [u"WikiAdministrator", ]

Where "WikiAdministrator" is the name of your admin account.

Once you add this line and create that admin account, you have your admin user!
