Max limit on Username length?
Hi,

Giot a bit of a problem trying to import users from a totally seperate PHP system. I'm building up the user fine, but for some reason - it comes up with:

[Mon Oct 6 02:44:23 2008] import_users.cgi: Invalid format for username: carolpaulteddypatrickduffy at import_users.cgi line 98.

...now , from a quick look - that seems like 16 charachters - is there a limit? I've even changed the DB to Username VARCHAR(70) , just incase it was that - but to no avail.

Is this hard-coded in somewhere? I can't just "trim" the username, cos they need to be about to login on the new system, just like on the old one =)

TIA
