In this recipe, you’ll create a new WordPress administrator account, then delete the old “Admin” account so you’re keeping yourself precious property safe!
Note: For those of you who are tech savvy and have no problems with scripts to do this stuff, there is a script you can use which is great when you have multiple accounts. I don’t describe it here because a good majority of folks simply don’t have that background.
Note: Be sure to select Administrator for the Role so you can do all the stuff you need to do.
Note: You can just hover over the username to reveal the Delete option. I find that it is safer to actually select the account first so you don’t accidentally delete the wrong account if there are multiples.
