    Hi. When you use the cpanel to change your main account password, does the ftp password automatically change? At the same time, what about emails etc etc.

    Thanks

    Hi,
    Yes, when you change the password in cpanel, your master FTP account will have to use the new password to FTP.

    You will have to use the new password for the main e-mail account too. All other e-mail accounts still will use the password that was entered when you have created it – so they will not be effected.

    I found the answer already. It isn't instant. I think the ftp password only syncs every night (24 hours) or as often as you click on the function in WHM .
