Delete Admin Account and Change Post Author?

  • Hey I keep hearing that no one should have an admin account created or in use if you care about security issues so I want to delete my admin account and use another account as admin. The thing is, I already created the forums with the admin account.. what is the best way to go about this? Should I..

    1: Delete The Current Forums and Just Create Them Again Or

    2: Edit Via MyPhpAdmin and Pray Nothing Breaks?

    Thanks

    Just create a new user for yourself, log in with that new user, then delete the old account and attribute all posts/links to the new username.

    Thanks how do I attribute though, will there be an option for that?

    Yes, when you go to delete the user it will provide you with an option to transfer your posts/links to another user account.

    Ok Awesome Thanks Dude ;)

    Will make a backup just in case though..
