Not Solved [How To?] Changing the "super administrator"
#1
Not Solved
How do I change the username/password for my administrator account?

Here’s what I tried to do:
- logged in as the current administrator
- set up a new account with administrator privileges
- logged out
- logged in as the new administrator
- attempted to change the (old) administrator account to a regular user
- received the following error:
“You do not have permission to edit this user because you are not a super administrator.”

So I have two questions really…

1) how should I go about changing the current admin account to something else (another username/password combination), and ensure that he, too, has “super administrator” privileges?

2) how do I change the old administrator account to a “regular” user?

Thank you very much for your help!

Edit ./inc/config.php.

Find the following variable:
$config['super_admin'] = "X";

And change X to what your userid is. Make sure you remove the other super administrator from this variable.

Then save the file and then attempt your changes again.

It's a file. You must look where your MyBB installation is.

Then navigate to /inc/config.php

Thank you all very much!

- Edited my config.php file for the first time
- And used PHPmyAdmin to look up a UID for the first time

I know these are simple things, but thanks for helping me learn!

change it to
$config['super_admins'] = 'x';

where x is your user id, not username.
if your user id is 1, then it should be

$config['super_admins'] = '1';
