    Hi,

    I have an automated user signup process so accounts are created in WHM automatically, to do this I have to generate the username automatically in order to avoid error checking, is it also possible to access WHM remotely to allow users to change their usernames thereselves ? What is the command, also what are all the commands I can access remotely, so far I can create/delete/suspend and unsuspend accounts, what else is available and how do I activate them ?

    It is possible but not adviced.

    Already changing usernames are not recommened. Sometimes causes problems, allowing the user to change his username (he can change then more than once then) will make more and more problems.

    You can make a database to save all usernames created and allow the user to choose his username (limited to 8 char)
    and the script check the database for used usernames before creating the account.
