    Hi,

    What is the fastest way to change passwords for hundreds of MY Own accounts in WHM? I want to change the passwords because of the Heartbleed bug. The "Force Password Change" option is useless for me or resellers with tons of our own accounts.

    I don't know the fastest way to do that, but cPanel Bulk Password Changer via the Application Catalog seems to do this fast.

    Hello :)

    There are no options available with cPanel/WHM that allow you to change the password for multiple accounts at the same time. Feel free to submit this as a feature request via:

    Feature Requests for cPanel and WHM

    Beyond that, you could write a script that utilizes our XML-API to change the passwords for you. Here is the documentation for the passwd function itself:

    Thank you.
