I have this great minibb running like a dream but I have freak issue and I'll go crazy with it:

Once everything was setup, I was the admin lets say with name called "mrsAdmin".

Now members list shows mrsAdmin as a admin, but it doesnt show my new username at all, cause i changed it as a "AdminW". With this AdminW I am using forum, and I have all the priviledges as admin, and it shows my AdminW as i am logged in. But that userlist doesnt show her. Just that old " the first admin mrsAdmin.

And in setup_option, I changed adminuser to this new name too. No help.

Where can I find files that i need to change? That who is admin and/or to change admins username?

Have a look at the last line in the admin panel and push it :)

Yes, restore your admin data in database; but if you need to to change this username in all previous posts, it is impossible by default. You can change it only directly in mySQL database... something like

update minibb_posts set poster_name='AdminW' where poster_id='1';
