    Wow that is a $50,000 question. :D

    To do something like that you need a good grasp of both Cpanel API and (either CGI or PHP).
    Not only you have to make it work, but you have to program error checkings to make sure that things don't screw up.

    You can check out /usr/local/cpanel/addons/ and ask Cpanel for the documentation regarding addon scripts. Good Luck with that. :D

    Or you can try to get Kosmo to reveal his code.Again, good luck with that. :D
    BTW,It is Fantastico, not Fantascio.
    One of my customers did a very creative variation a while ago.
    Fantistaco . That made me really hungry.

    Roy,

    fusioncroc's (YES! now with apostrophe!) submission was Fanstacio, not Fantascio. You just added one more variation :D

    packaging scripts using the addon scripts syntax is very easy, making your own installer is alot more challenger

    Well it is a matter or preference.
    I can code PHP blindfolded but when it comes to Perl, I break into cold sweats analyzing the codes. I tried using the Cpanel's addon scripts syntax (perl) to create an autoinstall script.
    5 hrs later I am still not getting anywhere ,not surprisingly.
    There are reasons you wouldn't want to use the Cpanel addon syntax.
    One, Can't install on the user's root directory
    Two, Less control over enabling/disabling scripts.
    Three, no language capability.

    I did a Cpanel autoinstall script for indexu lite (http://www.nicecoder.com) in PHP within 2 hrs.
    It's all about preference. You like Apples? Great ....I like Orange. If you can code an autoinstaller in CFM or ASP, more power to you.
    :D

    I found some info here that could help. I am working on something for a script that i made and I noticed this in a cpanel install file that is inside each add-on.

    http://www.openinstaller.com

    OpenInstaller is a package that makes the auto-installer package for you. I am still checking it out. but so far it looks good.

    Has anyone seen this and or used this?
