Rename Home Directory

Can I rename my Home directory?


I didn’t realize it’s possible for other people to see that folder name. Mine is set to something that can personally identify me, and this is not good for me.


You can’t rename the home directory, or the user, but what you can do is move the domain to a new user with a new name. You can do this by clicking “Edit” on the domain in the Manage Domains tab, then selecting “create a new user” by “Run this domain under the user”.

That won’t break any connections between a website and db, will it?


No — it should keep working normally under the new user.

Once you’re sure it’s working, you can get rid of the old user under “Users > Manage Users”. Don’t worry; it won’t let you remove users that are currently hosting domains.

Thank you so much!
