How to make a new user the default?


#1

Hi,

It’s my understanding that the first user created on a DreamHost account becomes the default user. That is, the user can do some things through the host that other users can’t – they have full access to the service. I want to keep my current users and databases, but I want to create a new user and make that new user the default, so that I can have total control in FTP, SSH, MySQL and elsewhere. Can this be done and if so how?

You can give any ammount of control to any user of your choice.

I don’t think you can take away full access from the creator account.

Be careful with those settings btw :wink:
