So that never happened.

Using CWPpro and the limit is 7 characters.  Doesn't this completely break any cPanel transfers?

AND I'M LOGGED IN!  STOP WITH THE F-ING GOOGLE I'M NOT A ROBOT!

This 7 character limit does make it more difficult to import databases from other hosts that allow more characters.  Here's another vote for getting this changes in CWP for Centos 7 and upcoming 8.

This is so bad client attraction from cPanel.

Did you though about that could be clients interested in moving from cPanel to CWP but this limit can stop them.. also yu are throwing money that you could easy get.

Ggood job

I'm sure there's quite a few seasoned WHM/cPanel admins that stuck with the original username length and experience no issues. This is why stability (15 years on WHM) is much more important than grabbing the latest of everything.
Just saying.

Is there any update on this, or a work-around? As some other users have said, this is an important requirement for migrations from other systems like cPanel.

Any news on this?
I have many databases I need to migrate over form sentora that are more than 8 chars long without having to change my code.

If i purchase CWPpro will this fix my problem?
