    Heres the deal, I had a reseller account and now im running my own server and im trying to copy the accouts from the reseller server to my own. The problem is the only way i can transfer them is using the Copy an account from another server with account password feature because the company wont give me the root password.

    I need the passwords for each of the accounts and some of my clients are hard to get in touch with is there any way i can view the passwords to each of my accounts? Otherwise i will have to change them all :(

    Or are there any other effiecent ways of copying my accounts? Thanks for your help in advance! :)

    The passwords are stored on the system as standard unix user passwords. Unfortunately, there is no way to "decrypt" the passwords, or otherwise view them in a plain text format.
