You use the Plesk administrator username and password to log in to Plesk. By default, the Plesk administrator username is admin.

However, admin is a predictable username, which can be easily guessed and used in brute-force attacks. Along with a strong password, you can set a custom username as an additional layer of protection against brute-force attacks.

To change the Plesk administrator username:

  1. 打开位于此处的用于编辑的 panel.ini文件:

    • (Plesk for Linux) /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/panel.ini
    • (Plesk for Windows) %plesk_dir%admin\conf\panel.ini

    您还可以使用`Panel.ini Editor <>`__ 扩展在Plesk界面中编辑该文件。

  2. 添加以下各行到``panel.ini``文件并将其保存:


    You can now change the Plesk administrator username in the Plesk interface or via the CLI.

  3. 转入 我的个人资料

    image admin username

  4. The “Plesk Preferences” section now contains the “Username” text field. Change the default admin username to a custom one, and then click OK.

    注解: To change the Plesk username via the CLI, run the plesk bin admin --set-login <custom_username> command.

You now need to use the custom username to log in to Plesk.
