Goodnight !!

I need to change the name of my host name but when I want to do it

tells me:

The domain "host.mydomain.com" is already owned by the user "nobody". The system can not set the hostname to a domain owned by a user because all local email would be directed to the "nobody" account.

How do I solve it?

Thank you so much

What I want is to rename my hostname

But when I want to do it, he tells me

How can I remove from WHM the property of the user nobody !!

Hello,

Check to see if an entry for this hostname already exists in the following file:

Code:
/var/cpanel/users/nobody
Thank you.
