    For security reasons it may be good to have the ability to change or disable the admin name and/or create new admin accounts with different user names. I do not know if this is in development but in order to protect my system I have to create a firewall policy to prevent access on port 81 to specific ip addresses that are known to be trusted. If there are multiple ip's then this list gets extremely large and administration becomes difficult.

    You can change the username of the admin by editing it in the database table sys_user. Just make sure that you only change the name and not the userid.

    Thanks that is what I needed to know. however it would be nice if there were an option or ability to perform the same task without having to directly access the database, but use the ispconfig interface to modify the name. there is already an option to change the password. having this option in the same area would be convenient.
