Changing 'admin' username for my wordpress site.

January 13, 2015 2k views


I’ve been an idiot and when I was installing Wordpress I’ve put as administrator username ‘admin’. Potential hackers always try that.

How to change that by accessing database through console? Or if it is possible via FTP.

My droplet is on Ubuntu 14.04

Thank you in advance.
