    When installing scripts with the new cP addons in cPanel clients are putting in a username and password but getting this error

    Username needs to be at least 8 letters, numbers, and underscores.
    Password needs to be at least 8 letters, numbers, and underscores.
    Can this be changed anywhere, if people install phpBB or others through cpanel not everyone will have a username that is 8 characters long.

    They just need to choose a username that's 8 characters long. Any less than 8 characters would be too easy for brute force attacks.
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
