    I am wondering if someone could answer a question for me

    I currently have a reseller account which has some customer hosting accounts on it. What I would like to do is edit the change password page/function in cpanel so when someone changes a password in their cpanel it will updatd a mysql row in an external mysql database which is used by my websites custom billing/support system.

    So the question is if I don't have root access to the server is it possible to do this change in my accounts cpanel and if so what file is it I would actually be editing.

    thanks all

    Without root access, this is not possible.

    With root access, this is done via a UniversalPasswordTrap:
