    Im trying to add a real user name with swedish characters (åäö ÅÄÖ)

    But the system only allows a-z A-Z _ 0-9

    can this be fixed?

    No I think it is not possible becuase this is the limit for linux usernames and not a limit of ISPConfig.

    Its the Real name collum not the username.

    If its Unix standard then the real name should be able to handle foreign characters.

    Unix does not have any problems creating a comment with the foreign characters :

    from my unix Machine. : /etc/passwd :

    jem:x:511:511:Daniel ÅÄÖÖ åäö:/home/jem:/bin/bash

    / Daniel.
