Changing host username


DNN displays "User updated successfully" when the default superuser account username is changed, but the value in the database for the default superuser account username remains unchanged.


  1. Add a new superuser account using the desired credentials.
  2. Log in as the new superuser and confirm that the account is working as intended.
  3. Disable the old "host" account.

Note: If needed, you can manually reenable the old host account by directly accessing the database. Use the following query: update users set IsSuperUser=1 where username = '/*username goes here*/'
