Hi there

I'm a unix/linux sysadmin with very little perl or cpanel experience, so please be gentle with me.

I'm trying to work out how to automate creation of accounts and mailboxes using the perl scripts in /scripts, so that we can integrate into our registration process. I've had some limited success with creating an account using /scripts/wwwacct, HOWEVER it doesn't seem to be possible to specify a package name using this script. Can anyone advise how I do this please ?

Many thanks
Paul

Regarding specifying a package, the package is passed in the plan parameter. Here's the syntax of /scripts/wwwacct in 11.25:

Please use the this syntax
wwwacct <domain> <user> <pass> <quota> <cpmod[advanced/?]> <ip[y/n]> <cgi[y/n]> <frontpage[y/n]> <maxftp> <maxsql> <maxpop> <maxlst> <maxsub> <bwlimit> <hasshell[y]/[n]> <owner> <plan> <maxpark> <maxaddon> <featurelist> <contactemail> <use_registered_nameservers> <language>

Thanks for your reply I managed to work it out myself on Friday (package = plan, nice and obvious huh ?).

Thanks again
