  • Changing Admin Name

    On my board I have an administrator account (user name - administrator) and a second admin account - my own user name.

    How can I change my own user name?

    I presently get this error:

    Sorry, this user is protected from being altered in the config.php file by the $config['SpecialUsers']['undeletableusers'] variable.

    Either, open up your config.php file, in the includes folder, and remove the userid of your admin user from the $config['SpecialUsers']['undeletableusers'] variable, then save. Then edit the username in the admin pannel, and repeat the steps above to readd the userid. The other way is to edit the username directly in the database, which i only recomend if you are familier with it.
