Create a second admin account and use that to rename the first.

Alternatives would be to edit the code or the database. Neither of which are recommended.

Because most people do not know what they are doing.

Why do you need to change the admin username?

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

I don't like the one that I registered. But could I make a new one and delete this one? And what would happen to the files?
