Hi there,

OK, we know that there's an included class that allows you to create an account, suspend an account, those kind of basic features. But how does WHM/Cpanel obtain the users current data transfer usage, ie bandwidth and FTP?

I'm assuming Cpanel doesn't use a MySQL database for all of the accounts? How does the storage of account information actually work? Where is it stored?
