    I wonder if anyone could point me in the right direction, please?

    I'd like to have WHM automatically install WordPress (using WordPress manager) immediately after creating a new account. Is this possible, and if so - how might I go about it?

    Thanks in advance,
    Phil. :)

    Hello Phil,

    You'd need to develop a custom script that makes use of the following cPanel API 1 function to install WordPress:

    cPanel API 1 Functions - cPAddons::mainpg - Developer Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    You can then setup a post-stage hook that runs your custom script immediately after an account is created. You can read more about how hooks work at:

    Tutorial - Create a Standardized Hook - Software Development Kit - cPanel Documentation

    The particular event you would hook into is Accounts::Create:

    Guide to Standardized Hooks - Whostmgr Functions - Software Development Kit - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.
