The setup date feature in cpanel is quite helpful to keep records of the setup dates of any account created. Though before this feature was released we have several accounts of which we would like to insert the Setup dates manually in the cpanel so that we can refer to them at any time.

I found that the setup date is another parameter option in each of the domain config files located at /var/cpanel/users/domain

I am actually not able to understand how the dates are stored can some one clarify it to me please ?

one example, date of Wed Apr 3 17:43:47 2002 was replicated as STARTDATE=1017836027. Can someone please explain it?

regards,

Anand

Do what he said to see what it is..

They day/date/etc aren't &stored&. It is the exact seconds from that date to the date it is for. Then the seconds are just parsed to figure out what it is.. Unless your server doesn't believe the rule of 60sec/min and 365days/yr, etc. ;)
