How to change user ID on MultiSite (7 posts)

    I clicked the red text's "fix it" link, which took me to the Users tab of Better WP Security. However, it didn't have the "click here to change User ID 1 to another ID" button to click, like it did on one of my single site installations.

    Can Better WP Security change the user ID of 1 to another number if on MultiSite?

    Thank you.

    I have the same question.

    I manually changed the id using phpmyadmin to edit the tables, but that led to some other issues.

    Be good to hear from someone at Better WP Security about what is best practice in this regard when using a multisite

    @aclchmyth why on Earth would it make sense to start another theard about the exact same issue?

    The rules you link to state:

    "Posting your own topic is smiled upon. Unless you're having 100% without any doubts or variation, the exact same problem".

    @joetheinsider has done just that, no?

    Are all posters using the same version of WordPress on the same physical server hosted by the same hosts with the same plugins, theme & configurations as the original poster?

    No? Then their problems - despite any similarity in symptoms - are likely to be completely different. So please help us to help you and post a new topic when we ask you to.

    why on Earth

    no idea - however, it makes sense here in the forum - not at least because the forum guidelines say so...
