    Hi all,

    I have been asked my a client to develop a script so they can login into their clients cpanel and/or whm accounts only problem is that i can see is changing the password then loginging in into their account then emailing them their new password.

    but is it possible to even Display all Accounts on a cpanel server and then login as the user reading the user's cpanel/whm username and password from some where?

    Where does Cpanel store all of this information for each user is it encypted some where?

    Can anyone share this with me,

    Thanks,William

    If I understand the issue correctly, you should be able to login to client's cPanel with the root password unless it is disabled in the config.

    Passwords are not stored in cPanel/WHM, but you may use cPanel/WHM to reset or change a user's password. Please note that system user account passwords are stored in an encrypted (hashed) form as-is standard in the supported Linux distributions; they are not in plain-text format and subsequently are not easily obtained.
