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 :)

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.
