    Is there any way to transfer accounts without changing password from one reseller to another server reseller?

    I not want to change customers passwords?

    What do you mean by, 'without changing password from one reseller to another server reseller?' Can you clarify?

    Passwords should carry over. You will have to change owner/reseller if it's different than the old server. And reset the plan the account is on to your new servers plans if different.
    If all that's the same, and the accounts are small (250MB or less), you shouldn't have too much trouble.

    Passwords on *nix systems are one way encrypted there is no way to view the existing password you can only reset them

    You should not have to change passwords to do an account transfer
