    I created a demo mode account for a site so that people can see what Cpanel is like. Is there any way to make a link that will automatically enter the username and password so the user doesnt need to?

    Also, is demo mode insecure? Is there a better way at offering a demo?

    Thanks!

    HTTP://USERNAME:PASSWORD@demo.yoursite.com This is how you would link.

    I always ran demo openly and had no issues. What I did was every few months or so just delete the account and reset it up. It clears it all out and just plain makes you feel a bit better.

    Yes cpanel demo is so insecure because

    i recently discoverd that a client of mine could successfully put a file called "telnet.cgi" in the cgi-bin directory
    i heard there are some security holes in crontab system as well

    if you need a secure demo for your visitors go for www.cpaneldemos.com
    its owned by a very decent and experienced member on here

    This method no longer works in SP 1 of Internet Explorer 6.0. So its pointless.

    <form action=http://yourdomain.com:2082/login/ method=POST>
    <input type=hidden name=user size=16 value=username>
    <input type=hidden name=pass size=16 value=password>
    <input type=submit value="Login">
    </form>

    Use an SSL site so the hidden values aren't viewable
