WordPress Speed Up Service | WordPress Website Maintenance Packages Reply To: Deleting the First User (Owner?) of the site., by Steve Stern If I create another user and give it the role of Administrator, can I then safely delete the original (first) user I created the site with? Yes. Create a new admin user. If you did this logged in as the user to be deleted, log out and login as the new admin. Verify you’re really and admin (does everything work?) and then delete the old user. WP will ask you if you want to move all content from that user. Say yes and assign the content to another user id.
