    Am I correct in thinking this...

    For a "user created" subdomain to work - they have to do this...


    1. create their subdomain in cpanel

    2. create a new folder with the same name as their subdomain in their public_html folder

    Then anything they put in the folder with the same name as the subdomain will be accessable from sub.domain.com

    Is this correct ?

    I have created sub domains by adding new accounts before in WHM - this way they get full cgi access etc. I'm not familiar with the way the cpanel version works.

    When you create a sub-domain it gives that sub a cgi-bin.

    this is normal...

    When you create a sub-domain inside cpanel it will create this sub inside public_html with an cgi-bin.

    You do not need to create a directory inside public_html with the same name since cpanel will do that for you.
