    cPanel Folks,

    When I try to create a MySQL Username with an underscore, I receive this error message: "Username must be alphanumeric characters."

    Fantastico also is having problems when it tries to create a username with the same name as the database: xxxxx_test

    The MySQL has a few existing usernames that contain underscores. The usernames appear to work correctly.

    Is this a new cPanel requirement?
