How to edit default admin credentials

I followed tutorial “Getting started after deploying Django” And i found that:

Step 3: Play in the admin area

The standard Django admin area is accessible at /admin. The login and password are stored in the DJANGO_USER* values you see when you call cat /root/.digitalocean_passwords while logged in over SSH.

The question - how can i change it values? Now i edited file and it is no results of this - login and password are old
