    I have a unique situation that I have 2 different clients that are on 2 different reseller hosts that use the SAME user name (account)...

    How do I easily modify so I can import both accounts, and not OVERWRITE each other? Is it possible to rename the account username? (ie. I also have MySQL databases which are based upon that username)... Is this possible???

    Any ideas?

    This is possible,but you will need to use whm-modufy account and change the user name on one of the accounts.

    Then edit his scripts that list his username_databasename, user_databaseusername
    to match the new cpanel username.

    Other than this there is no easy task to fix php/mysql strings in a clients web pages to a new username.

    I ended up doing exactly what you describe. It did work, and relatively minor chnage to get it to work...

    Thanks -
