Renaming a to just username. Will it break anything?

I created a user for a Magento database and I’m curious if I rename this to just magento_user via mysql cli, if it will break anything within webmin/virtualmin that may expecting that verbose name?

It’s working just fine as is, but I’m just curious. Thanks.

Centos 8.2, latest Virtualmin version.


If this user was created for Magento specifically I’d recommend checking their website and/or reaching out through their support channels.

Virtualmin won’t know about the association between the name and virtual server anymore, so it won’t be included in backups /restores (the user, not the database) or password changes. It’s probably mostly fine otherwise, though. I think. You’ll want to test, obviously.


Great to know. Thanks Joe. :slight_smile:
