    This is quite odd, I recently transferred an account from Goddaddy and the website's processes show a different owner from the cPanel username.

    From the process manager, it will show up as something like 1078.

    Is this normal?

    Hello,

    Sounds like it could be a UID of 1078? How did you transfer this exactly?

    Generated a full backup from Godaddy, transferred file via FTP. Restore full backup via WHM.

    Hello :)

    You can verify the UID of the account with a command such as:

    Code:
    id username
    Browse to the account's home directory and use the "ls -al" command to see if file ownership differs from the account username.

    Thank you.
