What you can do is keep the original data, then update and add a domain. If it doesn't work, put the old data back. It only is used when adding domains not users.
thanks. so my speculation that the 'dom_89' user is sort of a 'master' field for such things is correct?
i'll give this a try. and i'll be using phpMyadmin - thanks to the guys for the various suggestions for running it. (i'm doing two layers of security - first a .htaccess allowing only my home machine, and, when i'm not using phpmyadmin - which is most of the time - i just chmod 0000 the phpmyadmin directory. that's about as secure as you can get, i'd say!)
