The Ramses Daemon can’t be removed: it is a default user needed by Ramses automations, but you can rename it if you wish.
The default Administrator user should be renamed and its password changed as soon as Ramses has been installed!
With the default installation of Ramses, there’s also an additionnal user: Nicolas “Duduf” Dufresne, who’s the main developper of Ramses. This user is just a quick reminder that Ramses is free and that Duduf and RxLab really need your support. You can safely keep or remove it. Just. Donate. First. Please! Ramses relies only on your donations to exist.
Except for the password, there’s no need to validate any change; changes are saved instantly.

- ID is the unique identifier which is used in the files and folders (see Ramses Tree). It can’t be changed after the user folder has been created. Read the Ramses naming conventions to learn how IDs and names have to be formatted.
- Comment can be any text associated to the user. It is public.

- To update your own password, input your Current password and repeat your New password twice. Don’t forget to click the Change password button to validate!
