Is there a way to change the admin name and ID # ? Even

Is there a way to change the admin name and ID # ? Even though I don’t use the name “admin”, I have been using a pretty easy admin name and it was ID#1. I have changed the ID# and admin name for all of my stand alone WP websites but need to know how or if I can change that on a multisite install. I tried but it messed up access to the WPMU DEV tab and would not fully go away. Thanks for your help.

    Hi there @janlfox

    I hope you are well today.

    You should be able to do this in the same way as a normal WordPress install, which by your description you have done before. However the problem will arise if your plugins/themes then need that ID updating, for example you said the WPMU DEV tab didn’t function properly, I would actually recommend un-installing the WPMU DEV dashboard, change the ID, then re-install under the new ID (if that makes sense?)

    Thank you for being a WPMU DEV member!

    Kind Regards
