    quite a few ways I would think... couldn't you use an .htaccess file, or an alias, or even something in apache's conf file?

    It might be better to just replace the old index with something asking them to 'Click Here' and update their bookmarks though.

    Tried each of those, no luck. The server refuses to see files outside of the /frontend/x3 path no matter what I do.

    Might be easiest to contact all users and tell them to now use theirdomain.com/cpanel and theirdomain.com/webmail

    If there bookmarks are direct to the ports, then .htaccess and apache configurations won't work as the request is handled by cPanel, not Apache. One possible, untested, workaround is to create a symlink from x3 to oldtheme

    For example:
    Code:
    ln -s /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/x3 /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/oldtheme

    Using a sym link doesn't work. Cpanel seems to only see the "x3" directory, ignorng everything else in the frontend directory.
