Where do you want to change it? Dave gave you the mysql statement to change it directly in the database.

If you don't need to do that, just change your password in the UserCP like every other user. No difference.

As cellarius says, but if it does not lets you to change and get the following:
Sorry, this user is protected from being altered in the config.php file by the $config['SpecialUsers']['undeletableusers'] variable.

Than in ftp includes/config.php file find this line:
$config['SpecialUsers']['undeletableusers'] = '1';

and change to

$config['SpecialUsers']['undeletableusers'] = '';


Actually we delete the number 1

As stratis said: Then change that setting. It even tells you where to do that. Change the password, then reapply the protection.
