Changing SuperAdmin Name
With the recent flurry of Brute Force attacks on WordPress, one of the recommendations is to change the administrator name from admin to something else.
There seems to be 3 schools of thought. Create a new user, grant it superadmin priveleges and then delete the “admin” superadmin
The other is to ake changes to a couple of places in the table to change the actual name of the existing user from admin to something else.
It is a little concerning to go in and modify the database. But if you delete the initial superuser, “admin” does this create other problems?
Thanks in advance for your help!
