    Hey, all.

    Is there some function in the Web manager to regenerate the welcome email that gives a user his login and password and a URL to go to? If there is, I just can't seem to find it.

    If not, any suggestions on how one might do that for a group of people rather than just one at a time and manually?

    Thanks.
    Jeff

    As the welcome mail that gives a user their login and password is generated by your billing application, you should seek this functionality within your billing application rather than cPanel/WHM itself.

    thanks. One followup:

    thanks. I guess I just assumed it would come from the WHM. One followup if you please...Is there a function to tie WHM provisioning into a billing system already or is that something we would have to build/code ourselves?

    thanks again.

    On a programming level, most billing systems that integrate with cPanel/WHM already use our XML-API. You can read more about this API if you are trying to link our software with your existing billing infrastructure: http://www.cPanel.net/plugins/xmlapi

    However, if you are using a pre-made billing solution such as ClientExec or WHMCS, all you would typically need to do is copy/paste a "Remote Access Key" (also called a hash) from the WHM interface into your billing software so it can essentially login to the interface as you to perform the actions the billing software needs to do such as suspend accounts, create accounts etc.
