    Default Disabling admin account

    Hi all,

    I know this is funny but I will ask anyway. I have a user account that I have given administrator rights. Can I then disable the default admin account? Can I lock it?

    By doing so, will i have repercusssions on the server? Will upgrades fail or will it cause server to crash? (just checking the severity of it)

    Thanks,

    adrian

    Default

    be sure to assign any cron/mail/backup logs that you want to another address

    sure you could lock it, or assign a really long/impossible to remember string as the password... (you could reset it later from the other admin account)
