    I am organizing our server and I need to know how to change an accounts username. I cannot find it under modify account or any links under list accounts. Can this be done or will I have to set the site up again and modify everything?

    I believe you cannot change the username, password yes.

    On the List Accounts page in WHM, Hold your mouse over the username for a moment. A small icon should appear that can be clicked to edit.
    (Just to note in case it matters, this is on a server running CURRENT)

    Is it not showing up in list accounts as well?

    The account might be halfway deleted and is listed in some configuration files but not all of them.
