Changing default FTP username


Hello, I would like to know if (and if so, how) I can change the FTP user name that you first gave DreamHost when I first signed up.

Thanks in advance to anybody who can give me answer.


You can’t really “change” that username, but you can create a new one and use it instead (then deleting the old one]. Make sure you copy all the files from the first user to the second user’s space, and change the permissions before you delete the first username :wink:



Thanks for the help, exactly what I wanted to know. I’ll definitely be doing that.


You are welcome, and good luck.
