Hello :)

Yes, the cPanel username is the same username you use when accessing the account. Note that using the "chown" command recursively is not recommended. It's better to determine which files require an ownership change and update them manually. If you do choose to use "chown -R", then ensure it's only used on a file/directory beneath the account's public_html directory.

Thank you.
