Hello all,

i am very new in the cpanel world, i have a website that uses cpanel, and i have a laravel website created. in this project, i have set up users login/creation, so now, what i want to do is, instead of going in the cpanel dashboard and create manually email address, is it possible to create new email from php?
here is my workflow i want to achieve:
user signs up on laravel frontend
the data is received in the backend, with data validation etc; lets call the user testuser
when all is fine with his data, then, i want to create an email, from laravel (my domain is lets say example.com) like: [email protected] with some password without doing it manually in the cpanel (those emails are for sending and receiving texts only, so no big quota needs to be set for them).
i've seen several scripts (ranging from the old xmlapi that is not supported anymore) to some others that use sockets, but it seems i cant get them to work.
can anyone share his knowledge on this?

PHP:
$xmlapi = new xmlapi($ip);
$xmlapi->set_port($port);
$xmlapi->password_auth($account, $passwd);
[B]$xmlapi->set_output('json');[/B]
where $ip, $port, $account and $password are simple string variables containing your settings.

$xmlapi->set_output('json');

is what i added
