Adding an Admin User Account to Your Site
After installing and setting up your site, you may want to add a team member or virtual assistant account to access your site. This is a much more secure way of allowing other team members to access your site rather than sharing passwords.
Follow these steps to add a new administrator account to your site:
- Login to your WordPress Admin Dashboard → Users → Add New
- Enter your preferred username for the new admin user.
- Enter the email address for the user.
- Enter the first name (optional).
- Enter the last name (optional).
- Change the password (optional).
- Send the new administrator an email (optional).
- Change the role to Administrator.
- Click the Add New User button.
That’s it! After you have completed these steps, the new admin user can log in to your website with administrator privileges. You’ll see the new administrator user in the list of users on your WordPress website.
