    Is it possible to convert a client into a reseller?
    We setup a client already, his website is working, but now we need to change this client to a reseller. Do we have to delete the client and add them again as a reseller?
    Thanks for any suggestions.

    If you can access your database (e.g. phpmyadmin), simply change 'limit_client' to positive number (e.g. 5 = 5 clients) or set as '-1' (unlimited clients) in the table of 'client' in 'dbispconfig'.

    dbispconfig --> client --> find a client --> update limit_client value (e.g. -1)
    Current value of limit_client should '0' as only difference between client and reseller is this value. This make sense as reseller can have clients but client can't. Hope this helps.

    Then redo the phpmyadmin installation steps from the tutorial.

    I ran the apt-get install and phpmyadmin is installed under /usr/phpmyadmin. What steps specifically are you referring to?

    Are you sure about /usr/phpmyadmin? What operating system is running on that host?
    I believe on Debian and ubuntu phpmyadmin is not installed in /usr/phpmyadmin. Unless you installed it yourself not from Debian or Ubuntu repository.

    Most likely you did not select yes when it asked you to configura apache. This will result in phpmyadmin being files added but you will not be able to access it. Try.

    a2enconf phpmyadmin

    and then restart apache2 to fix it.

    Apologies, the path is actually /usr/share/phpmyadmin

    OS is Debian Stretch.

    I tried
    a2enconf phpmyadmin

    ERROR: Conf phpmyadmin does not exist!

    What shows
    apt-cache policy phpmyadmin
    ls -lh /etc/apache2/conf-available/phpmyadmin*
    ls -lh /etc/apache2/conf-enabled/phpmyadmin*

    dpkg-reconfigure phpmyadmin

    and ensure that you select the apache config option correctly this time. an option is selected in apt by navigating to it with the arrow keys and then the option is activated by using the space bar of your keyboard.

    Excellent! I can now access phpmyadmin. Thank you!

    Now back to my original issue: Changing a client into a reseller:

    I made this change via phpmyadmin and this worked. Thank you all!
