    Okay, I know the title was vague so let me explain here. I'm running a web hosting company and I want to sell blog account with cPanel access. So, I need to make it so certain packages will be auto packed with a blog script. How can I do this?

    Thanks guys!

    One thing I have done in the past in a similar situation is set up a reseller account solely for 1 type of package then editing the skeleton directory of that reseller account so it had all the files in it that I wanted. However, this may not translate well to your situation since as far as I know, the vast majority of blog scripts rely on a database back-end and simply throwing the script files into the skeleton directory will not take care of setting up the necessary databases and table structures.

    There's always the more elegant option of integrating this into whatever automated account creation script you have where as soon as a user signs up for a blog package, a proper but automated installation of the blog software is queued (to be later handled by another script that automatically handles these things) with the user being notified by e-mail when the process has completed.
