    Hello,
    I have a reseller account and would like to perform daily backup for my end users. As I have no root access, I can not perform this through WHM.

    I am thinking of doing this through a backup script using the cPanel API.

    I can list my user's username just fine, but I am having problem listing my user's password to actually log in to their cPanel from my cron script to perform backups for each account.

    How do I get the list of my user's password through the API?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    You can't retrieve a user's password through cPanel. This is done for the sake of security (and is standard with most linux distros).

    You can however login to their account using your reseller password with their username (if the option is enabled on your server)
