Changing or deleting the ispapps user because I need the UID 1000

    I want to install ERPNext on my server alongside ISPconfig using Docker.

    The Docker image uses a hardcoded UID/GID of 1000 - and this is the ispapps user and ispconfig ssh group on my server. Is there any way to change the UID/GID or can I delete the ispapps user?

    As of right now, all ssh users and the ispapps user would be able to access my ERP data because the Docker volume directory is set to 1000:1000. I don't really think that this is a good idea.

    Thanks in advance!

    Don‘t delte the ispapps User, ispconfig won‘t work correctly. Use an extra server/vm for your docker application.

    Exactly, the purpose of docker is to isolate apps from each other, not figure out how to get everything installed and running together. I've never tried running ISPConfig in docker, but it does not seem well suited; I would just fire up a vm (or several) and move ISPConfig to that.
