    I restored a cpanel full account backup on my server.

    It was restored with the same theme it had on the other
    server, the default X.

    I was wondering how could I change the Skin to RVSKins?
    I tried changing the Plan via the Reseller Control Panel
    but it didnĀ“t work.

    Go on, have a guess
    You could edit /var/cpanel/users/account-name and set the RS= value to the theme you want.

    Is there a command to mass set the skin for everyone? Example: I want to set everyone's skin to X2.

    The easiest way I know of to do this is as follows:
    1. Login to WHM
    2. Go to the Multi-Account Functions Section
    3. Click the Modify/Upgrade Multiple Accounts Link
    4. Erase the contents of the search box on the right
    5. Click Select Matching Users (all users will be selected)
    6. At the bottom, next to theme, set it to the theme you want
    7. Click Change

    Note, I would recommend that you consider moving clients to X3 as we do intend to discontinue support for X and X2. Also, most of the nifty new functionality of cPanel 11 can only be accessed using the X3 theme (or another theme specifically designed for cPanel 11).

    Of course, that's what I plan to do as soon as v11 rolls in (most servers are on release). Thanks for the help.
