changing username for secure login

    Hi, I appreciate that this is not strictly a Graphene question but I have 4 Graphene sites and have had great support here before.

    When I set up the sites I changed, using PHP my admin , admin username to something more secure without any problems.

    Now I wanted to make the username even more secure and went through the same process as before but this time I have edited the name and pressed go but it still shows the same username, it has not changed. Are you only allowed to change it once or have I missed something.

    Also could somebody explain what a nicename is?

    Thanks

    Do you have phpMyAdmin access? If so, follow this post. But instead of changing password, change the username to something else.

    Thanks Prasanna SP, I’ve tried that just as explained in your blog but it still will not let me use the new password although I followed the steps exactly.

    Sorry not the new password it’s the new username I meant.
