    I am trying to create email with 3 tetters login

    for example
    email: [email protected]
    login: xyz

    And I get an error:

    "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"

    Is there any possibility to decrease minimum amount of letters in username????

    Yhe thing is that I'am trying to migreate from Communigate with existing usernames and there is already 3 letters usernames there...

    Thanks in advance

    If you want to change the min. username length you will have to change the regular expressions in the username plugin in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/plugins and mabye the document type definition of the user form in the form designer inside ISPConfig under management.

    As far as I remember just comment out this block:

    // Ãberprüfung Username mittels regex, bei Fehler löschen
    // if(!preg_match("/^[a-z,0-9][\w\.\-\_]{3,64}$/",$user_prefix . $username)) {
    // $go_api->db->query("DELETE from isp_isp_user where doc_id = '$doc_id'");
    // $go_api->db->query("DELETE from isp_nodes where doc_id = '$doc_id' and doctype_id = '$doctype_id'");
    // $go_api->errorMessage('<b>'.$go_api->lng("Feld").': Username</b><br>'.$go_api->lng("Der Username muss aus min. 4, max 32 Buchstaben oder Zahlen bestehen, wobei er mit einem Buchstaben beginnen muss.") . "<br>&nbsp;<br>");
    // }

    Commenting this out is a really really bad idea as you remove all username checks. This enables everyone with access to ISPConfig to hack your server!

    If you want longer usernames, change the regex from:


    to e.g.:
