I've been looking for progress on the topic of being able to change the username for the main admin account. I've noticed the link to the issue in the bug tracker
(as seen in this forum thread
) is no longer working.Perhaps the install script would be the easiest way to incorporate a custom admin username
. The same way the password is set, the username can be set.
When I go to log on via SSH to admin@, there's always a ton of failed login attempts. This is a big security flaw as the only thing a hacker needs to figure out is the password alone. The password will give them root access to the server as admin is given sudo privileges. We need to make being able to change the main admin account's username, or install with a custom username, a priority.
If I can help in any way, I would be glad to.
