When I go to my domain plus wp-admin the login is "admin" plus the assigned password.

How do I change these ?

Usernames cannot be changed. Your best solution is to add a new user with a different email address. When you add the new user click into the password field, delete what's there and type in the password you want to use.

FYI it's not a cPanel it's your dashboard. We don't have cPanel at Wealthy Affiliate.

Thanks Marion,
Good information... Now I understand.
Things are a little different, since I used WA for purchasing this new domain... Right? It's my first time, going thru WA.

Hello,

to change the name, you have to log in to your site first.
There go to "Users" and change the name, or create a new user.

I don't think you can choose the password yourself.
All you can do is click on the "reset password" button.

Cheers

Yes, I log in to my domain with [ /wp-admin ] at the end.
Then I go to "Users" but there is no "change the name" ... just an "Edit" button.
I select that button & it takes me to a page that says: "username can not be changed".

I have several other sites & I have changed the password on all of them to the same password but I don't remember where I did that.

That is what I am looking for... the place to change the username & password.

I've done it before but can't remember where & how.

As far as I know, you can only change the nickname and the displayed name on WordPress.

Sorry, I don't know a way to manually change the password.

Are you sure you did that on a WordPress site?
Maybe you used a plugin?

Yes, all my sites are Wordpress sites.

In order to login to the cpanel, I have the same username & password on all of them. No, I didn't use a plugin.

That's what I am trying to do with this new site.

If nobody has another idea here, I would contact SiteSupport.
They should be able to assist you with this.
