    Years ago somewhere a long the way the setup date in WHM for older sites was set to 1969-12-31 19:00, is there anyway to change the date?

    Hi,

    you can see one line in the /var/cpanel/users/user account, it will look something like this:

    Code:
    STARTDATE=1352914747

    Change that to the timestamp of the date you want it to be, and remember, this must be a timestamp in the proper format.

    Thanks,

    Hello,

    You can modify the "STARTDATE=" entry for each user's file in the /var/cpanel/users/ directory. The "STARTDATE=" entry is configured in unix format:

    Unix Time Stamp - Epoch Converter

    Thank you.
