Default The username is already in use.

I am running 'the perfect setup' on Ubuntu 6.06LTS
ISPConfig Version: 2.2.12

I set the system up using the username 'josh'

however I want to add that username to a site in ISPConfig.

ie: ISP Manager >> Sites >> www.website.com >> User & email >>

I get the message "The username is already in use."

So I went through and created a new user with sudo permissions, then removed the user 'josh'. however I keep getting the message... Can anyone please help me, this is a stopping point for me right now... Thanks in advance!

You must remove the user josh from the ISPConfig user blacklist:

/home/admispconfig/ispconfig/users

You can also get this message if the user is still in the ISPconfig Recycle Bin

If the user is still in it, empty it.

It's so you do not create ispconfig logins that conflict with system logins, ie: root, sshd, bind, mysql, etc

The backlist prevents that system users that were not originally created by ISPConfig were overwritten by ispconfig users.

Example: If you run ispconfig without username prefix and one of your customers would create a user anmed mysql, ispconfig will "capture" the mysql system user and set a password for this user. To prevent this, ispconfig has this blacklist of users that existed before ispconfig was installed.

This means that you either have uninsatlled and then reinstalled ispconfig or you had a update error and run setup a second time without recreating the /root/ispconfig folder before.

i probably understand now - ISPConfig is putting all users existing in /etc/passwd after clean installation (not upgrade)

So i can delete all ISPC users from /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/users ?
