First at all, a big Thanks to Fulvio for Zeroshell !

Now I have a question regarding the profile description:
How can I change the description (name) of the active and/or an inactive profile? - Each Zeroshell profile has a "description", which is entered at creating a new profile.

Because when a copy is created, the description is copied along. This makes it difficult (for other persons) to decide for example which profile should be used as working fallback when there are multiple copies with the same name/description - of course, there is the profile number, but a description like e.g. "router ok" would be easy to identify for persons without further knowledge of Zeroshell administration.

Changing the description of a profile seems quite easy: just edit the appropriate file, e.g.:
Code:
vim /DB/_DB.005/.settings/Description

The file contains one line of text, which is exactly the description given at creating the profile.
Attention: editing an internal file might break something, so no guarantee at all.
