Default Index Page under cpanel3-skel

On the cpanel faq page, the below file is provided for uploading to the /cpanel3-skel / public_html/ directory. It resolves as the default index page for any domain lacking an index page in their /username/public_html. I tried it and it works up to a point.

Here's the fly in the ointment:

File Type: PHP script text
[Web Hosting Company Name Here]
cPanel Login
Your login attempt failed! "; ?> User:
"; ?>

What am I doing wrong?? It's pretty obvious I need to change some text, but the code is showing complete with the text boxes, but it doesn't give you a chance to enter the login.

Here's the script:

#Login Configuration

$protocol = 'http';
$port = 2082;

#Secure cPanel
#$protocol = 'https';
#$port = 2083;

#$protocol = 'http';
#$port = 2086;

#Secure WHM
#$protocol = 'https';
#$port = 2087;

#$protocol = 'http';
#$port = 2095;

#Secure Webmail
#$protocol = 'https';
#$port = 2096;

<h1>[Web Hosting Company Name Here]</h1>

<b>cPanel Login</b><br>

if ($_GET['failed'] == "1") {
<font color=#FF0000>Your login attempt failed!</font>
print "<form action=\"" . $protocol . "://" . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . ":" . $port . "/login/\"
User: <input type=text name=user><br>
Pass: <input type=password name=pass><br>
print "<input type=hidden name=failurl value=\"http://" . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] . "?failed=1\">";
<input type=submit value=Login>
<a href="cpanel-login.phps">Source</a><br>
Note: This examples requires cPanel 9.4.1 or later!
