    Wow... I've been using the webmail auto load for so long that I completely forgot about that link. Now, please excuse me while I shamefully make my exit....

    Hello,

    We just provided example of code and probably you will need to update XML API client class, you can find the latest one here:
    https://github.com/CpanelInc/xmlapi-php

    If you need our assistance, you may open a ticket with additional information of the problem, so we can test it out.

    Hello daarkm,

    I'm sorry but I'm not sure I follow. You want to change an email address password for a script or by a script? You can see more about cPanel's API here.

    Please clarify your question and we'll see how we can assist further.

    Fast forward to 2020 and the XML-API was eliminated from cPanel years ago. If you have a dedicated server or VPS server, you have access to the cPanel object which creates a CPANEL Class allowing the use of UAPI functions. Some of us are on shared servers and can't use those without the CPANEL Class.

    I played around with a command line script I found and was able to modify it so it works. The code below provides the framework to develop a custom PHP application that will add the email forwarding address to cPanel. There is also a URL to delete a forwarded email address. There isn't much error checking in this, so those who use it in their own scripts may want to add that.

    <?php

    ################################################## #############
    # cPanel Email Forwarder Creator Version 1.0
    ################################################## #############
    #
    ################################################## #############
    #
    # Can be used in 3 ways.
    #
    # 1) Sample run from browser:
    # cpanel_email_forwarder.php?euser=john&edomain=site 1.com&eforward=johny@gmail.com
    #
    # 2) When run from browser without parameters will show entry form
    #
    # 3) Sample run from your script (by including):
    # $REQUEST['euser'] = 'john';
    #
    # $REQUEST['edomain'] = 'your_domain.com';
    #
    # $REQUEST['eforward'] = 'johny@gmail.com';
    # include("cpanel_email_forwarder.php");

    Brilliant share WHK, thank you!

    For those of us who are less PHP savvy, is there a specific PHP version you've chosen while testing your script?
