    Is there any way that I can configure ISPConfig to accept usernames that are minumum 3 instead of 4 letters as it is the default setting right now?

    You can change the regular expression in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/plugins/isp_username.plugin.php.

    I opened the file

    and changed the following rule from 3 to 2

    if(!preg_match("/^[a-z][\w\.\-\_]{2,64}$/",$user_prefix . $username)) {

    I also changed the following from 4 to 3 (so the error message would be consistent with the rule)
    Der Username muss aus min. 3, max 32

    It works in that I can create a user of three letters but then if I enter an incorrect length username (< 3 or >32) I get the following error message in German instead of English! :confused:

    Field: Username
    Der Username muss aus min. 3, max 32 Buchstaben oder Zahlen bestehen, wobei er mit einem Buchstaben beginnen muss

    I changed nothing else.

    Please help

    Please undo the change in the sentence: "Der Username muss aus min. 3, max 32" and change the text in the language file instead.
