Unhappy Can't Create a User Account for a new Website

Greetings,

I've got ISPConfig running using Ubuntu 5.10 and after creating my Reseller / Client and now Site - I can't create a Site user due to the following message.

Field: Username
The user name has to contain a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 32 letters or figures and has to begin with a letter.

I do exactly as told and use a sufficient sized username yet it doesn't work.....
Any Ideas on why this is happening? I did disable the DNS service.

I also was wondering if I can modify my sshd_conf file to force ssh to use protocol 2 and disable remote root login. Would this cause problems for ISPConfig.

Confused

City

What is the username you tried? Have you changed the username prefix.

This causes no problems with ISPConfig.

I did change the username prefix where I made it CBE[WEBID]_
and using "zhang" as the username. Still no go : (

You are shure you have no whitespaces in the userprefix field or username field?

Yes, No Whitespaces. At this point if I wanted to reinstall ISPConfig to try to see if that fixes it - what is the best method of uninstalling and reinstalling cleanly?

Your help is most appreciated
