The configuration file for each account in cPanel is located in the folder `/var/cpanel/users`.
The file in plaintext and contains key=value pairs for each of the account settings.

The top of the file includes a note that states:
- If you edit this file directly you must run /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/updateuserdomains afterwards to rebuild the system caches.
- If you edit MAX_EMAIL_PER_HOUR or MAX_EMAIL_PER_HOUR-[domain] you must run /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/updateuserdomains'
