Can't delete dummy user in User Manager

  • I have a situation where I have a dummy user in User Manager that I can't delete.

    His icon is grey with no name, disabled or groups info.  How do I get rid of this phantom user?

    You may need to download a configuration backup and remove it manually. I suspect it's a completely empty <user>tag. Once you manually remove it, restore the backup and it will be gone.</user>

  • I found the following highlighted in red and it doesn't look right:





  • Yep, delete that line in red and restore your config.
    If you know how to make the problem happen, then report it, then the original cause can be fixed.

  • Hmm, I think I did something stupid like deleting the user from User Manager that I was logged in as.  It should never let you do that, but it did.  I'll try to log it once I can reproduce it.
