Hi,

I have recently bought whois.cart and want to sync this with WHM..only problem is, my existing packages are called for example: 'westside_westside 100' - this package name has a blank space in it, which causes whois.cart not able to read this package.

How can I change the actual package name to 'westside_100' as I cant seem to do this in the edit packages menu.. come on, someone ought to know :D hehe :cool:

cheers boys & girls

Hey, contact your provider to allow you editing packages, you wont be able to edit, until he/she allows you, then you can see the option.

That i tHink

I dont think one can edit the name of a package from Edit Packages option even if you have logged in as root. I suppose you will have to delete and recreate it.

Well.. there might a file where we can edit it directly from shell, will look and get back if I find any thing.

Go on, have a guess
You can rename packages by simply renaming the file(s) in /var/cpanel/packages/* if you want accounts to then use that package name you're going to have to do a search & replace for the package in the files in /var/cpanel/users/*

Chirpy, once again your knowledge is extremely helpful. This saved me a lot of time grepping and finding the files I need to modify for 10 packages.. and a heap of time it would have taken if I had to recreate the packages.

Thanks as always...

On a similar note, I am trying to change the 'setup date' quoted for an account - which is in the same file.

However, I don't seem to be able to recognise the format in which the date is stored, and how to work out what to change it to.

eg, it is currently showing as 1171624380

Any ideas ?

Thanks
Daniel

Hi,

I don't know why after change the files' name, I still see the old packages when I click Upgrade/Downgrade an account (but don't see old packages anywhere elese)? Anyone has the same problem?
