    Change the line in the /var/cpanel/users/[username] file that looks like this:
    STARTDATE=1048157767

    1048157767 is March 20, 2003.

    Sounds like that got changed to 0 in your files.

    I'm pretty sure I have a script to convert dates to the "time" value but can't remember where I put it. :eek:

    A little off subject, but how do you get March 20, 2003 out of 1048157767? Is there a pattern or something there?

    You will have to edit that through ssh.

    Thanks
    Do I open SSh through WHM?
    Under:
    Restart services
    SSH Server
    (Open SSH)
    Will that open an SSH panel where files can be edited?

    If your not sure, then I would reccomend having someone else do it. You will most likely get lost in SSH. But you need to download a program to login to it. Do a search on google for Putty. But make sure you do not change anything you are unsure about in there, you could cause alot of harm with a small change in settings.

    If you don't know what SSH and shell commands are, you should be very careful because as ddeans said, it's very easy to cause damage.
