Hi,

I would like to know if it is possible to disable specific special character when creating cPanel account?
I want to disable "@" character. I do have an Auto Installer Script (Softaculous) which uses User Authentication via the URL itself.

For Example:

If my user is: billyboxer and password is: [email protected], then the URL will look like this:
/https://billyboxer:[email protected]@my.domain.com:2083/frontend/x3/softaculous/index.live.php

Usually, this won't work because my password contains "@" character. The URL won't recognized the domain address and will give me this kind of error.

Code:
getaddrinfo(3) failed for [email protected]:2083
Couldn't resolve host '[email protected]'
Please advise.

Thank You.

Hello :)

You can enter your own custom password to ensure that character is not used. However, it's not possible to modify the randomly generated passwords.

Thank you.
