I have recently migrated to a different Host and also changed my domain name and main contact email address. I was surprised that I was able to log in to my new site’s WP Admin with the old User Id and password. In order to have a clean slate of log-in credentials, I went to my Profile, I went to the top right corner of my admin page and clicked Edit Profile. I was able to add my new domain name and it refused to change my User Id (which is an email which I am not using on this new domain). However, it does not stop me from logging in.
I have used Change Admin email setting without outbound Email. but that did not change my email address address in my profile.
If I still want to go ahead with this, am I looking at adding a New User? If so, what happens to the old one? Will it conflict with the new User?
My apologies for this late response. I had other Security issues to sort with my new site etc.
I don’t think I have access to MySQL.. (if that is something that I need to do in Control Panel?).
The only thing I want to change is the email address which acts as my Log- in User name. The current User name displays an email which I was using in relation to my previous domain name. Although I am able to log in to WP Admin with the current Log in User ID (as they are simply nicknames even if they happen to be an email address) but being a damned perfectionist, I just want everything to reflect my new domain name and the log in ID that relates to it. I could even create a nickname saying: “Fussy-Perfectionist” ha ha… but I cannot change the user Name according to WP Profile Edit. I tried to change that under the current Profile credentials. but it says User name cannot be changed and it has been greyed out.
(There is a flaw with WP whereby we cannot make overall changes under our Profile. I have seen this issue being raised by others too).
If creating a new User is the only way to get around this, then so be it. I will do it and see if it raises any log-in issues for me.
P.S. Am I allowed to send attachments in this messaging system? I don’t see the option for it though.
Thank you once again for your attention @amieiro .
