Hello,

I would like to know if it is possible to delete the admin account that was used to install LS.

I no longer wish to use this admin account since this was just used as a dummy account for LS installation.

Is this possible? Can I just delete the Admin account from SQL without any dependencies?

Thanks!!

Hi,

Why not, just changing admin full name and password using LS interface ?

I'm not sure if the software will really like the lost of his superadmin. If you want to try this, you have to edit `lime_users` table via PhpMyAdmin or similar interface. Hope you really know what you are touching ;) however there is no trouble if you backup this table or the full database previously.
Here you will find a sample of `lime_users` table structure...
