    I have a question regarding a Login theme.

    I used WHM to CLONE our existing theme, lets call it clonetheme1

    I then used the button beside the new theme to download the theme, and then created all the new logos I wanted to replace.

    What I don't understand, is how do I upload those files to the correct location on my server.

    note - I have root WHM user credentials.

    Lost and confused

    You're working on a custom WHM theme or is this for cPanel?

    I have already used the branding features to change the cpanel the way I want it.

    What I am attempting to change now, are the Logos used on the Cpanel, WHM, and webmail login screens

    Custom Branded Login Pages

    If you look at this link, it lists where the WHM, cPanel, and Webmail logos are, that are basically big ugly orange words, and I want to replace them with the logos I mage last night.

    Bite yur tongue! Geesh! :p

    You'll need to login via command line to work with these files I would think.

    If you're not comfortable with that, you might like to know about this addon:
    ConfigServer Explorer

    Of course, you'll need to login via SSH as root and install that, too.


    HTH!

    I feel even more lost now...

    how about this, I am using a windows PC...
    If I click the DOWNLOAD button beside the login theme, it will download the file as login.clonetheme1.tar.gz

    As I understand it, that is just the unix version of a zip file, so lets say I unzip it and replace the .png files I want to replace, using the same naming as the original files ...
    now, how can I get that back in a .tar.gz and if I can do that, couldn't I then upload the new modified package?

    If you package your modified clonetheme1 as a tarball (.tar.gz), the Universal Theme Manager in WHM has an Upload form. You should be able to use this feature to get your modified theme onto your server.

    OK
    I figured out how to download it, and used 7-zip to create the tarball, and it uploaded successfully. ..

    not how do I "select" or "apply" it as my "login theme" ?
