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.

Features :

Change password of all email accounts in your server
Change password of all email accounts of selected domains
Change password of email accounts specified in a file
Change password of all cPanel accounts in your server
Change password of selected domains
Change password of cPanel accounts specified in a file

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.
