    Longer UserName field length in HWM/CPanel?

    Does anyone know if it is possible to set the UserName in a new account in WHM to be longer than 8 characters? We share a security certificate and the user name is part of the HTTPS://, so we need more than 8 to identify customers well.

    open: /scripts/wwwacct

    if (length($user) > 8) { deaderror "Sorry that username is too long. MAX is 8 letters"; }
    You should edit login length here. You can't exceed maximum system login length.

    I too need to know if changing the default value would cause errors because I would like to use domain names as usernames.

    I wouldn't advise using this sort of scheme.

    If you alter the way cPanel works you could find yourself not being able to backup the accounts or transfer the accounts.

    Hmm, I'm interested in this too...

    then what scheme should we use?

    This is probably a question best asked in the forums.
