Question

How do I rename root?

I recently tried to find ways to rename my root from the host I bought, but unfortunately I don’t know how. Maybe any of you does, and I hope that it is possible to do so.

Example, root@username I want to modify it to, railgun@username

You can’t.

You would be better to disable root login and create a new suer with sudo access (do his part first)

There are a bunch of tutorials based on your droplets host on here.
