    Hello,

    I know WHM has a reason to limit username characters to 8, because otherwise MySQL usernames break etc etc. However I'm planning to use WHM/cPanel for following only:
    - FTP
    - File Manager
    - SSH Access
    - Quota and Bandwidth Monitor

    The following will be disabled completely:
    - MySQL
    - Email System
    - DNS
    - Apache

    So, can I somehow increase username size to over 8? All previous threads end up with "you'll break MySQL", but I couldn't care less about it. So if you know how I can increase the size, please point me to the right direction.

    Thanks!
