I have a reseller who is not particularly technical. They create new sites by setting up an account in the form Then they use the cPanel WP installer. When the site is completed and ready to go live, they change the main domain to and everyone is happy.

Except Site Software, which keeps issuing upgrade emails for and causes the reseller to be confused.

In a dream world, a domain name change on an account would trigger a corresponding update to Site Software, but I don't expect that to happen any time soon. Until then, is there a configuration file I can edit to make the change? If so, can someone tell me where to find it?

Hello @LoadFactor,

I've opened internal case CPANEL-24674 to report the issue where modifying an account's domain name using WHM >> Modify An Account doesn't automatically update the corresponding cPAddons YAML file in /home/username/.cpaddons/ to reflect the new domain. I'll monitor this case and update this thread with more information as it becomes available. In the meantime, the temporary workaround is to replace all instances of the old domain name with the new domain name in the corresponding YAML file (e.g. /home/username/.cpaddons/cPanel::Blogs::WordPressX.0.yaml).

Thank you.
