    Hello All,

    I was wondering if you can give advise regarding this problem I have.

    I have a billing software installed on server 1 and I would like to be able to automatically install accounts on server2 but the usernames for both accounts are different by one character.

    If I change the username on the other server2 to match the server 1 with the billing software installed, would this automatically update the mysql database username that i am using for things like forums and other php scripts that require the original username?

    for example:

    server 1 username: username
    server 2 username: usernames

    I would like to change the username of server 2 to match server 1 so that when I create packages they are identical.

    please help

    Go on, have a guess
    I don't really understand what you're after - but AFAIK you cannot rename cPanel accounts, you would have to delete it and recreate it.
