Hope I have posted this in the right spot. Iam trying to set up a cpanel demo with whmcs. The directions I was given is below, and some of the options I cant even find such as the default install server... Thanks for any help that you all can give me, this is driving me nuts.
To create a demo account, log in to your WHM web interface. 1. Create a new feature list through Packages > Feature Manager Create a new feature named demo and uncheck/disable the following options: Password Change Change Language Change Style Update Contact Information Click Save . 2. Create a new package through Packages > Add Packages and name it demo and choose the demo feature from the feature drop down list. 3. You can now have the gene ral public access your demo cPanel account like a normal user would access it. You can use this link: http://server.domain.com:2082/login?user=demo&pass=trynow 4. Setup a new WHMCS user account for this cPanel demo account. To do this, simply go through the procedure of setting up a regular web hosting plan in WHMCS and name it demo. Do this from Setup > Product & Service > Create a New Product . You should mark this plan as hidden so this plan won't show up on your WHMCS order page. You can do this from this plan's detail page. On the Module Settings of this demo plan, choose WHM Package Name to demo which is the WHM package you created above. Then choose the Default Install Server into the WHM server which is the WHM package you created above. Then choose the Default Install Server into the WHM server which your demo account resides. Once you’ve this plan created, sign up for yourself for this account and make it to have no billing. 5. Now you have a WHMCS demo account which is linked to your cPanel demo account. We need to do this so that you can terminate your cPanel demo account every day or every few hours and have your WHMCS to automatically create the demo account again. To do this we simply need to add a cron job which automatically terminates and recreate the cPanel demo account through WHMCS
