I've recently acquired hosting and CPanel 4 is used. I would like to be able to create a PHP script that can create email accounts - so specified users can 'activate' their membership and get a mail account created. I know that the server is running cppop however I do not know how users are specifically stored/authenticated and whether there are any current PHP modules out there to achieve this?

I would appreciate any help.

Here hope it helps

This should help you:

&?
if ($submit){


//Username, root directory NO TRAILING SLASH
$home_directory = &/home/username&;

// Mailbox path
$mail_path = &$home_directory/mail&;

$p_directory = &$home_directory/etc&;

$newuser = &$formusername&;
$usrPassword = &$formpass&;


chmod (&$p_directory/passwd&, 0755);
chmod (&$p_directory/shadow&, 0755);
chmod (&$p_directory/quota&, 0755);


if (is_dir(&$mail_path/$newuser&)){ echo &username taken, please try again&; die; }
mkdir (&$mail_path/$newuser&,0770);
mkdir (&$mail_path/$newuser/uploads&,0770);
mkdir (&$mail_path/$newuser/addressbook&,0770);


$mailfile = fopen(&$p_directory/passwd&,'a');
$shadowfile = fopen(&$p_directory/shadow&,'a');
$quotafile = fopen(&$p_directory/quota&,'a');



$mail = &$newuser:x:xxxxx:xxx::$home_directory:/bin/bash\n&;

$shadow = &$newuser:& . crypt($usrPassword, $usrPassword) . &:::::::\n&;
// convert quota to bytes, If you dont want them to set there own quota you can delete the $formquota variable, and put in a figure, ie. 5 and then remove the form compontent, allowing you to add quota.
$formquot = $formquota * 1048576;


$quota = &$newuser:$formquot&;

fputs($mailfile, $mail);
fputs($shadowfile, $shadow);
fputs($quotafile, $quota);
fclose($quotafile);
fclose($mailfile);
fclose($shadowfile);
echo &Account Created Successfully!&;
}
else
{
?&
&html&
&center&&h4&Create New Mail User&/h4&&p&
&form method=post&
Username: &input type=text name=formusername&&br&
Password: &input type=password name=formpass&&br&
Quota in MB: &input type=text name=formquota&&br&
&input type=submit name=submit value=Submit&
&?
}
?&

Ok
Is their a script like this in Perl?

I can't get this one to work.

Isn't their a way to make a script, either in PHP, or in Perl that will create a email account with the new features, any domain name pointed, parked or added on?

Is it possible?

For instance:

if you have mydomain.com setup as a hosted account, and mydomain.net pointed to it,

now you can use Cpanel to create [email protected]
or [email protected]

So, is their a way to have a script create the account, using a form to get the information needed to create the account, such as the form in the Cpanel that CREATES the actual accounts?

Thank you.

yes this is quite easily possible in PHP, using sockets to login to an account and do the mail creation, let me know if you need further info, thanks

Maybe with enough script you may sell it as a customisable API running on port80 and for other web application integration and charge $5/month ;)

Thanks in advance.

here you go!
$host = &www.domain.com&;
$socket = fsockopen($host,2082);
$user = &cpaneluser&;
$password = &cpanelpass&;
$authstr = &$user:$password&;
$pass = base64_encode($authstr);
$in = &GET /frontend/default/mail/doaddpop.html?email=emailaddress&domain=domain.com&password=emailpassword&quota=10 HTTP/1.0\r\nAuthorization: Basic $pass \r\n&;

fputs($socket,$in);
fclose( $socket );

it may be a little slow but it definitely works, and I suppose this means that you can use it do any command really,

Ok I tried the php script in the first post and the only thing that don't seem to be working is the chmod of the etc. dir. on a certain domain.

Do I have to be logged in to the cpanel to do this or ftp. What I want is for my users to beable to signup for any email account by just filling out a form.

?

you can change the script to include a form quite easily
&?
if ($submit){
$host = &www.domain.com&;
$domain = &domain.com&;
$socket = fsockopen($host,2082);
$user = &cpaneluser&;
$password = &cpanelpass&;
$authstr = &$user:$password&;
$pass = base64_encode($authstr);
$in = &GET /frontend/default/mail/doaddpop.html?email=$email&domain=$domain&password=$password&quota=$quota HTTP/1.0\r\nAuthorization: Basic $pass \r\n&;

fputs($socket,$in);
fclose( $socket );
}
else {
?&
&form method=post&
Username:&input type=text name=email&&br&
Password:&input type=password name=password&&br&
Quota:&input type=text name=quota&
&input type=submit name=submit&
&?
}
?&

this should work, if you want a proper full custom system you would have to pay a developer really, unless you can find someone who is really nice to change my code :)

If you are running suid to the owner of the domain

set REMOTE_USER to your username and run

use /usr/local/cpanel/cpanel-email

# /usr/local/cpanel/cpanel-email
cpanel-email: usage
addpop &popuser& &password& &quota& &domain&
delpop &popuser& 0 &domain&

I got a blank page (no error messages) but the mail account was not added.
