Enable usernames and namespaces for user projects

This command will enable the namespaces feature introduced in v4.0. It will move every project in its namespace folder.


  • Because the repository location will change, you will need to update all your git URLs to point to the new location.
  • Username can be changed at Profile ➔ Account.
