    Dear ISPConfig 3 Authors,
    It seems that we cannot change the default ISPConfig 3 login name "admin".

    It is a security weakness. Any chance to change this policy in the next release? :rolleyes:

    Maybe you cant rename it but you can anyways deactivate the admin user and create a new user under "System -> CP users" and assign admin rights to him.

    Which is in my opionion way more secure, since the admin user has in most cases a default user id, so it is easier manipulated once someone has access to the mysql databse.

    Hi Concept21

    I followed your instruction. I created a new user named newuser and deactivated the default "admin" user. I logged off and and logged back on as "newuser" . I tried to activate "admin" again but I received an error message. How can I return the ISPconfig back to its default? In other words, how can I reactivate "admin" again?
