I am using a custom skin that has all the text in a language file

To make default accounts easier, I renamed the language file &english& so that I didn't manually have to go to modify account and change the language to the skin's custom language file.

Now I think that the english language file is updated when cpanel updates, so obviously my method above isn't going to work, and in fact messed up a few accounts.

My question is:

Is there any way to set the language file used by default to be something other than &english&

This is more of a problem for resellers as they can't select the language file.

Thanks in advance for any help.

*bump*

I'm surprised nobody else seems to have this same dilema.

Please post if you can shed some light on this for me.

Well, I have. I named the &skin& english file to english_skin to avoid it to be overwritten. I then chose the language english_skin.

As someone else pointed out the command `replace´ is a good to use to change any cPanel config parameter for many users:

cd /var/cpanel/users
replace LANG=english LANG=english_skin *

Note that `replace´ is not part of native Unix (Linux, BSD...), but part of the mySQL package.

Hi

I have exactly the same problem. Is there no possibility to set a default language for the cpanel?

Thanks
Mike
