    Hi there.

    i am a happy man to have cPanel on my server, but there is something there is pissing me off.

    Is it possible somehow to change the name templates of ftp usernames and mysql usernames/database names?
    and mail server names too.

    ex. then i need to logon to my ftp server i need to use username: %domain%.%master_domain%

    Why that?

    Why not only use %domain%, there are not dups of the domain in the system?

    And the mysql username is %master_domain%_%what i choose%.


    If you don't get what i mean then write it and ill try to explain my self.

    No, it's not possible to change the template but if you don't know, cpanel user is also a FTP account with the same password. And when you create a database with name username_dbname, a database with the same name as cpanel user is created (like username in my example).

    If you have WHM, yes, will be better to have one account for each domain (or at least for each you want ftp access).
