Hi,
how can I get access to webmail directly? Without loging into the admin-account an click on the "Start Webmail" link? Is there another way like www.yourdomain.com/webmail or something?

Thank you!!

Hi,
is it also possible to access the logfiles?
I tried /log, /logs, /stats, /webalizer but none of these urls worked...

And something else: How can I change the language of webalizer to german? Is there a language file?

Thank you!

Here's a thought;

When you want to access a feature of the Control Panel without having to first open the Control Panel, use the Control Panel to access whatever feature you want -then- Bookmark it.

Makes sense, no? :D

Hi,
no sorry it doesn't BECAUSE you need the "root" or admin-password to access your bookmark. I asked because I want to give my cilents the possibility to access their webmail, webftp, weblogs etc. directly without going through the whole admin-area.... so I doesn't make sense :)

Thank you anyway!!

Why would someone need 'root' when they are accessing their own Cpanel -- or features therein? :confused:

what he means is they need root for that account. I started searching and found this thread. I have a developer that doesn't give CP access to her clients. They want to see stats but she wants them to stay out of the CP.

a nice re-direct like this would be great

Good information on a problem is always a plus. Unfortunately, most people don't include all the info on a problem -- for a good answer to be given.

If we presume you are correct, then they can do what they want by doing like you suggest (with that type URL). Problem on the Hosters part is, to setup an .htaccess access and 'symlink' for each feature they want to provide access to -- this also means for each Client. Trying to provide a feature/service that requires something 'above & beyond' what is provided through most Control Panels, is a Big Headache in my book.

But then again, why anyone would want to give access to features, provided by a Control Panel, but not give access to the Control Panel itself, is not a philosophy I can understand. Much easier to use a specific, 3rd party script, that provides something along the lines of the feature(s) they want to provide access to.

actually it can be done in the redirect.cgi that cpanel uses for control panel directing...like is in httpd.conf for /cpanel and /webmail

we had ours working back a month or so ago and I think it got overwritten :(
