The second most common odd question I get asked is "Why is the default userid 62?"
Andrew attempted to give the most complete answer but the truth is the answer is lost in the dim and distant past.
There is nothing you can do about it.On every install a superadmin user is created with username "admin" and userid "62".

Session storage is a very important aspect of web applications. In its simplest form, a PHP session allows data to be stored temporarily on the server and accessed throughout a user's time on the site. When that user leaves the site or is inactive for a certain amount of time, the data is destroyed. While anonymous sessions are common, sessions are usually associated with user logins.
