Post subject: How do you change your admin name

I am having a weird problem, I created a fresh forum there are only two users me and a test user I want to change my admin name to admin so I go to management under look up user type in my original name and to change that to admin and type in my password and it tells me I cannot have it that admin is already taken, when I go to search for the user admin it says they do not exist?

note: I used a different name for admin when I created the forum I wanted to change that to admin

You can simply go into your database through phpMyAdmin or whatever frontend you use and change the username value in the phpbb_users table.
