I have secured my SSH logins with certificate authorisation and I want to change my username, so I did. When I did this, I was denied access. Is there a way to change username without affecting the SSH login process?

  • The question is a general unix question and has nothing to do with Raspberry Pi.

  • @Ingo Sorry, I thought it was raspberry pi related as I am using it as a server.

  • Hi Leon185, it is not that you would not get an answer, at least in a comment. But it is possible that you get votes to close (you have already 3 of 5 as you can see) due to our policies. In your case it doesn't make a difference if you use a RasPi or any other computer. It is only that you may get quicker better answers at e.g. unix.stackexchange.com
