    Is there a realtively easy way to cahnge a sites main/home domain?

    I had a customer create a new web site on Cpanel with new.domain.com

    Now I've pointed the www.domain.com to it, and it's live.

    They have anonymous ftp access enabled, and I would really like to get away from Cpanel labeling everything new.domain.com and use just the real final domain.

    I know I should have set it up that way first, and parked the new.domain.com, but I didn't. I had a new Cpanel user that's confused enough. I just want to fix it if I can.

    Edit files, etc... Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    IN whm, just choose "edit an account" then select the account, and change the domain name.

    Will this properly change all the subdomains and addon domains (which are parked on top of subdomains) too?

    I think it does, but if it doesn't, it's not too hard to do it manually. I think all you would need to do is edit httpd.conf if it doesn't work.

    and possibly the appropriate /var/named/domain.db file if it isn't updated.
