@herculesnetwork - I’m with you :). I honestly feel that something as basic as allowing users to change the username should be a standard feature; for the sake of security, and for the sake of customization. Due to limitations (with most all control panels), that’s one reason I prefer to make heavy use of the CLI, Bash Scripting and custom commands/aliases over installing a control panel. The only time I’d personally use a CP is if it has the option to shut down when not in use (i.e. I can enable/disable from the CLI - use it while I need it to make life easier, then disable when I’m done so there’s no potential for abuse - thus blocking access completely).

I’ve actually been working on my own solution for a little while now. It’s far from complete, and it needs to be cleaned up, though once it’s in a state where I feel it can be easily used by others, and I’m confident that security isn’t an issue, I’ll be pushing the code to Github as an OS project.

started using control panels because of the signatures of emails, do not have conditions to do a thousand things to sign new face email account … and we panels just one click

I use control panel just because email assign dkim, which in line commando found it very exhausting. as bash scripting? I can create databases and users accounts, permissions on files and directories, make all the strong security ssh server using RSA keys, disabling root access by specifying the User that can access, config knocking and all for line command the archives settings only by nano or came to install my CMS, I have no difficulty, but the issue of dkim key, I gave up in time to make via manual settings. control panel which I could turn off completely when not in use?

@herculesnetwork - There’s an ongoing request with, at the time of this response, 14 votes, to allow users to change the “admin” username, though it’s not been finalized. As of right now, from what I’ve read, changing “admin” would require numerous changes elsewhere (inside the core of the software), thus, there’s not a quick-fix.

You can check out the request at the link below. If this is something you’re in support of, create an account and submit a vote so they know.
