    Hi,

    I would like to install WHM/Cpanel onto a server, but I only have a limited account space. I do not have a root account. It is hosting that I have purchased, but am free to install whatever I want in the space.

    Could you advise me whether I can install WHM and then create cpanel accounts inside that space?

    Thankyou!

    Go on, have a guess
    I very much doubt it as you need to have superuser access to the server (i.e UID:GID 0:0).

    Does anybody know of any similar products that I could use for this?

    To set up a hosting panel I think root access is essential ...
