    I'm having a slight problem finding how to move an account to a different home partition. I found the "Rearrange Accounts" which allows for movement from one home directory to another.

    What happened was on one of our servers the partitions names were incorrectly set. We had some of our domains on that server, and when we updated the partition name (remounted to a new name), cPanel didn't follow over (didn't expect it to). When we run "Rearrange Accounts" on our accounts, it says "Data already exists, already run?" and doesn't update. So cPanel still thinks it's on the old directory, when it's name is updated.

    Example: home2 was what the mount was named. We renamed it to home, and want to force cPanel to now look at the accounts there (List accounts shows "home2").

    The question: is there a way to force rearrange accounts to run, so it updates properly? I'm not wanting to rollback these changes, but I will if it's the only option.

    Thanks for the help!
