    If you had an old server hosting say 100+ domains with the Apache2. Then you installed cpanel. Now you have to type in to cpanel every domain and password. You can not use scripts to change passwords either.
    Say it ain't so!

    Not sure I understand you, but you must do a cPanel install to a clean server. You cannot upgrade a production server with user accounts already on it.

    Infopro is correct; the installation must be performed only on a freshly-provisioned, minimal OS install with the latest updates and patches applied.

    Please also see our install documentation and quick-start guide:
    System Requirements - cPanel Inc.
    cPanel Installation Guide
    Quick Start Installation Guide

    After ensuring there's a clean install of cPanel/WHM completed on a freshly-provisioned OS, it would then be safe to migrate from the old server.
