Hello,

This might be a stupid question, but I figured I'd ask (so please don't tear my head off :) ).

I'm starting to develop cPanel themes. I really like the way this one's coming out and after I'm done I'd like to continue to develop themes to sell on my site. Right now, I'm using my dedicated server to test the themes, which is extremely cumbersome.

I have a box here I was thinking of installing RH9 on and using as a cPanel theme development server. Is there a possible way to get a theme developer license? I've seen mention of it in other places and was wondering how one could go about it.

Thanks,
Frankie Benevides

Go on, have a guess
You can, but you need to justify one to [email protected] - there's an initial fee to cover their costs for it. Your server does need to be internet facing so that they can access it if they wish to confirm that the server is being used for development purposes.

Thanks for the info, Chirpy. I'm going to email them soon with a few questions.

I'm not really sure if I can point my server to the outside world, since I do all work from home on an RCN "home" connection. I guess I could always put it on a different port and try to lock the thing down really well (though I've never used Linux outside Lindows & SSH).

I guess it all has to wait to see if I can get a dev license. Wish me luck!

If you can port forward on your internet facing router to the server, then that should be fine. As you see from people's responses, whether you get one or not is at their discretion - good luck :)

I'll wait until I get my theme up and running and send them a link to the demo along with my request. A lot of work has gone into it (over 2 weeks now, and I haven't started on the 360-some-odd pages I have to revamp), so I'm hoping that'll at least start to show my intentions.

Hot damn there are a lot pages. I'm thinking about combining some of them, but a lot fo them logically have to be in their own page. Editing all of those is going to be a daunting task, especially since I'm making sure every page is valid via the W3C HTML checker. I just hope all of cPanel's generated code is valid.

So, I guess the "Wish me luck!" means more now. So, wish it please. ;)
