a client needed a ftp account for putting data on the server
adding an extra ftp account in cpanel [email protected] and name+domain.tld (for IE) works fine. But the client who need to put data on there server coud not use such username in there script / program (somehow).

So i edited /etc/proftpd/passwd.vhost and changed [email protected] to namedomain. Then it works fine for the client.

Problem is that cPanel somehow replace this username, namedomain, back to [email protected] after a while.

How can i prevent this from happening?

point is, its some dirty weather script that gets uploaded in a txt format in a map on the server.

the program who upload the weather script does not like @ or + somehow :mad:

and the ones who provide the weather script are to dumb to fix it.
