    Hi,

    My current Skeleton directory is displayed as:

    /home/Account01/cpanel3-skel

    But I want to have it say:

    /home/AccountDefault/cpanel3-skel

    Is it possible to make this change? And how can do it?

    Thanks!

    In your current configuration, your Reseller's name is of course, account01
    If you'd like to change that, you'll need to change your Resellers name, or, create a new Reseller.

    Hi,

    I tried to "modify an account" and I got this message after trying to use a different username:

    "Hook denied modification of account: Permission denied"

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Are you logged in as root user to modify the account of the Reseller user?

    Hey,

    Yes, I'm logged in as the root user. As the owner of the reseller account.

    Hmm, if you're logged into WHM, as root user (who owns everything and has access to every account) and change a username and it fails, there's an issue somewhere. What tier of cPanel are you on if I might ask please?

    Sounds like you have a 3rd party application that prevents this. A 'Hook denied...' message indicate a customization to cPanel & WHM that alters its behavior.
