    I had someone doing work for me and things went south. He was creating mini sites on my cpanel server and I now need to change all the passwords for them.

    They were all created under the same reseller/owner account.

    Is there a way to change every password at once (ftp & cpanel) instead of doing them manually? It's around 200 or so accounts, so doing them manually would be boring, to say the least.

    You could build a script that accesses our XML-API to change the passwords for you. You can find documentation on the XML-API by visiting:

    http://www.cPanel.net/plugins/devel

    The function you would use is passwd
