Question How to update config.php to make myself undeletable as admin.

How do I make myself, the admin, incapable of deletion?

Any other security tips (and the means to execute them) would also be most appreciated.

Thank you, everyone.

Open /includes/config.php and enter your userid in place of the red x:

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.

If you use filezilla, you can right click and hit edit. It opens (the config file). Replace the user number with your user number and hit save and you are good to go.

If you own the site, but have administrators, I recommend you do this for your own protection.

Oh, man, I still have no idea where to start. Thanks for the comments and help everyone, I just can't initiate things because I don't know where to begin doing so.

Is your forum hosted on a server where you have something like cPanel available? I normally do not recommend using it, but if so, you may find it easier to just use cPanel's File Manager to make the file edit.
