Can't Create a User Account for a new Website

    I've got ISPConfig running using Ubuntu 5.10 and after creating my Reseller / Client and now Site - I can't create a Site user due to the following message.

    Field: Username
    The user name has to contain a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 32 letters or figures and has to begin with a letter.

    I do exactly as told and use a sufficient sized username yet it doesn't work.....
    Any Ideas on why this is happening? I did disable the DNS service.

    I also was wondering if I can modify my sshd_conf file to force ssh to use protocol 2 and disable remote root login. Would this cause problems for ISPConfig.

    What is the username you tried? Have you changed the username prefix.

    This causes no problems with ISPConfig.

    I did change the username prefix where I made it CBE[WEBID]_
    and using "zhang" as the username. Still no go : (

    You are shure you have no whitespaces in the userprefix field or username field?

    Yes, No Whitespaces. At this point if I wanted to reinstall ISPConfig to try to see if that fixes it - what is the best method of uninstalling and reinstalling cleanly?

    Your help is most appreciated :D

    No, this doesn't cause problems for ISPConfig.
