    on one of my servers I upgraded php to 4.4.3, then I had a customer tell me, that when he used "$password" (without the "") and save the file,when you reopen it, it is changed into your actually cpanel password. I tested this and everytime it did it. I then thought, well, 4.4.3 issue, lets upgrade to 4.4.4, no go, same issue, so lets downgrade back to 4.4.2, and still the same issue? what is going on, any ideas on this one?

    any file it does not matter, you can create a file called readthepost.php and will do it.
    you can do this in file manger or ftp, does also not matter

    Can you be a bit more specific?

    Save what file? What are you using to open/save files? Which location?

    yes only this one server, it happens in all accounts for any .php file in any folder in the vhost
    it only started since the upgrade to 4.4.3 so I have no idea, I am going through /bin to see if I was some how rooted...

    *why are my replys before the quoted posts lol

    That doesn't work with me. Does it only happen on 1 server?

    A very strange issue I must say :)

    You could try contacting CPanel, they might want to have a look at this.

    there is a bug report open with cpanel
    I have changed cpanel back to R119 from C482 and it no longer does this.
    It appears to be a bug with file manager in C482.
