[SOLVED] Remove ftp username prefix
[Solved] [SOLVED] Remove ftp username prefix

i already search for this and understand about the reason of the "zadmin_" as prefix of ftp username.

But i have a specific ftp account called: "zadmin_plain" and i really really need this to be just: "plain".

Please anyone can tell me how to change this ssh?

I have the same problem with the prefix "zadmin_" in my mysql databases, but i fix it via ssh creating directly my databases. I know the databases without the prefix are not listed in sentora panel, but this is not a problem to me.

Thanks a lot!

[Solved] RE: Remove ftp username prefix
I find the solution:

1. Log in your server by ssh;
2. Log to mysql, typing: mysql -u root -p;
3. Insert your mysql root password (dont know? stop this and type: sudo nano /root/passwords.txt and you see your root mysql password, start again from step 2);
4. type: use sentora_proftpd;
5. type: select * from ftpdusers; // this will list all your ftp accounts, find the id of the user will be changed.
6. type: update ftpusers set userid = 'ftp_username_here' where id = 'username_id_here';

Done! Now you can login in your ftp without 'zadmin_' prefix.
I see in the sentora panel the username continue with 'zadmin_' prefix, but is working fine.

Please be careful with this operation, this is not recommended, just change the username if you know what you are doing.
