Do you have moderation permissions?
You need to add admin group in the moderator group

Since this is a new forum and:
I used a tool provided by my host
I suggest you reinstall using FTP this time.
Installation User Guide
Installing phpBB3

Only use a good FTP or SSH client, such as FileZilla, to transfer the files. (File transfer utilities provided in host control panels can cause problems.)

Thanks

when you first install the board, you are supposed to be a founder and also in the global moderator group.

some of the one click installs from the hosts do not do that correctly.

another reason for starting over with the files you get from here etc.
