    We wish to use Cpanel to offer a limited set of tools to a subset of our users. For instance, Web hosting only, no e-mail services.

    How does WHM support this?

    TIA

    You make a separate theme and package for those particular users, that you don't want to have email functionality.
    it's as simple as copying the default them (/usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/default) to a new directory and then tweaking the files within.

    then you attach a particular package to that theme, and you can specifiy what functions are available to users in that package by manipulating the theme.

    steps

    editing cpanel
    1. cd /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend
    2. cp -r default new_name_of_theme
    3. then cd new_name_of_theme/iconic
    4. edit the main.html page (pico main.html)
    5. remove what you don't want
    6. ctrl x to exit it will ask if you want to save it

    Am I missing something?

    feanor, you posted this path &/usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/default& in your reply. I get to /usr/local/cpanel/ and the cpanel directory is completely empty. From your path, I have to assume that other people have directories and subdirectories in the cpanel directory. Do you have any idea what might have happened to mine?

    Mary
