    Is there a way I can quickly add multiple FTP accounts (e.g. by uploading a text file or adding entries to a database)?

    You can create/modify or delete FTP accounts from "FTP Manager" in the main cPanel screen.

    Yes but that's very slow (even on fast broadband) and quite annoying when I have to manage accounts in bulk. I thought there was an easier way to directly access the FTP account database or something so it can be done faster...?

    Yup very slow. The best I could speed it up was to open 5 tabs and after clicking on one tab, switch over to the next tab to enter the details. That way I didn't have to wait for the page to load up. Once done, repeat again.

    I'm trying to do the same thing . . .
    ther eis a file called "ftp_LIST_0" in the ".cpanel-datastore" folder inside each users home directory which appears to be a list of default paths for each FTP accounts default directory.
    However, editing this file doesn't work . . i think there is an FTp database somewhere and this text file is simply a copy of what's in that database . . (cos any action in cpanel that involves "syncing ftp database" will re-write the ftp_LIST_0 back to the original FTP account paths again . . .
    so where is this "FTP Database" ?
