Why should I never host a website under admin account

By default the admin user has elevated permissions. If you run for example Wordpress under your admin account. And a vulnerability is found in Wordpress or a plugin. Users might be able to run a limited number of commands as root.

To stop this "issue" do not run websites / mail domains under the admin user!

How can I disable "Use IP address allow list for login attempts" via Command line

With the introduction 1.4 we have added certain security features including the possibility to limit login from a certain ip address. When the ip address changes you will not able to login any more. To disable this feature via command line:

# Set value LOGIN_USE_IPLIST to "no"
v-change-user-config-value admin LOGIN_USE_IPLIST 'no'
# Remove listed ip addresses
v-change-user-config-value admin LOGIN_ALLOW_IPS ''

Now login as you are used to be.
