    Is it possible to change the cPanel password generator defaults to *not* include symbols? The symbols are causing problems when trying to use the generated passwords in other scripts and it's a pretty big pain. If I could change the default to simply be a longer password using only letters and numbers by default, that would be extremely helpful and save us and our users a lot of trouble.

    Thank you!

    Doesn't your scripting language have a quoted syntax that means "this is a literal string"?

    Then again... if there is a way to tweak the defaults, I'd also like to know. Every time I generate a password I have to go to "Advanced" and regenerate with 18 characters, with symbols, numbers, upper, lower... I wouldn't mind saving 2 steps :)

    There is no way to customize the default values in the password generate. Please consider adding a request for such at our feature request site: cPanel Feature Requests
