Wrong Version Numbers in cPanel

It’s common that when moving a cPanel account between servers with differing software versions, the version numbers (specifically MySQL) on the side of cPanel still reflect those of the old server. This can be changed by editing the version files for the account that was moved:

The files holding the version numbers are located in:

cpanel 10: /home/username/.cpanel-datastore/

cpanel 11: /home/username/.cpanel/datastore/

The following files control the version display in user cPanels:

Apache Version:


Perl Version:


MySQL Version:
