i'm just starting my website, installing wordpress, and it's asking for admin username and password. Do I have to set up a new one? Or can I use what I logged on to the hub with?

Hello Succeed,

Thank you for your question about setting your WordPress Administrator username and password during the WordPress installation process. You can set this to whatever user name and password you want, but we do recommend that you use something other than admin for the user name and make the password something difficult for others to guess. Additionally, make sure that you change the email address to your email so that in the event you forget your password you can retrieve it through the WordPress "forgot password" link (on the wp-admin login page).

Please feel free to contact us if you have any additional questions or need further assistance.
