Support » Localhost Installs » Instant WordPress Username – "admin" ?

  • BriteWater


    Is my username suppose to be “admin”?
    I feel like I must be using a sample account.
    How can I create a new username, and start my own Instant WordPress account.
    I already have Instant WordPress on my computer.

    Hi BriteWater,

    A lot of quick install programs create a username for you, typically “admin.” You’ll probably want to create a new user with your username of choice, make sure to give that user admin permissions. Then you can sign in as the new user and delete the “admin” user.



    @ecalley: don’t forget to set all your blog posts to the admin, it happens to me all the time…



    @britewater your question is quite confusing…. But if you like to check the existing user names:

    Login to phpmyadmin –> yourdatabase –> wp_users

    If you like to add new user:

    * Login to WordPress
    * Click on Users –> Add New

    Username (required)
    E-mail (required)
    Select the role as desired…

    Thats all!!

    you can use the username changer plugin its simple
