I had accidentally created a user with the wrong “User”, but correct “Name”. Like in the example below.
I want to delete it, but before I could I got this message:
Deleting this user will cause all of its associated data and settings to be PERMANENTLY deleted and you will not be able to recreate a user with the same name. Are you sure?
I don’t really understand what this warning is talking about. Is the User part non reusable or the Name part? And, I don’t want to do anything permanent without understanding what I’m actually doing.
I’m fairly new to DreamHost, and to website hosting in general, so maybe this is just some obvious consequence of how that works that I haven’t figured out, but if anyone could explain it I would be very grateful.
