    Hi guys,
    I just got a new server setup and I would like to know where or how I can change the root directory for new domains from
    /root/cpanel3-skel to /home/username/cpanel3-skel

    Also my mail is screwed up. I set all my system mail to go to my private adress trkoch@cox.net , however I get this error,

    For moving the dir.. You cuold simply rename the /root/cpanel3-skel dir to something else and thne doing a symlink i.e.

    ln -s /home/whatever/cpanel3-skel cpanel3-skel

    (while in /root as root user)

    As for snoopy.trkhosting.com did you do a dig of that, and make sure it's actually there? If you did this recently, maybe Cox DNS didn't update fully yet.

    You don't know how to administer Linux?

    That's a needed skill...

    Do you know how to do shell stuff...?
