    Hello,

    I need to install some skins. Where would I log into to do that, and how would I do this? I really need step by step directions. I made a custom skin, and I need to install it on our server. I have root access, I think I need that. Can anyone please help me? Thanks!!

    Kylecool,

    it is really simple. Create a directory with your skin files and copy it into

    /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend


    Step by step:

    Let\'s say, your directory\'s name is \"skin\" and your username is \"me\"

    1) Upload the directory containing your files to your base ftp directory /home/me

    2) Telnet to your server

    su root
    (enter your password here)
    cp -R skin /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend <-- (replace \"skin\" with the name of the directory containing your skin)

    3) Go to WHM, select an account to modify and choose your skin as CPanel theme.

    That was easy. Thanks for the detailed explanation. What if I want to delete it? How do I do that?

    KEWL!! How would I make a demo CP so people could see it, but like its not a whole domain. Like demo.myhostingcompany.com ? How would I make a DNS record, or whatever, to do this, then i could somehow put it on demo mode.

    -Kyle

    P.S.- Ne1 know where I can get the latest CPanel Commands to list pops, bandwidth, etc.?

    the way we do it, we first created a demo plan (small amount of resources, just enough for demo purposes). then whenever you create a new skin just create a new account called demo.hostname.com and assign it to the demo package (this auto enters the dns records and all). then set it up as a demo account in whm.

    you can find most of the cpanel commands in the api discussion area: http://support.cpanel.net/new/forumdisplay.php?fid=5 or in the text file that\'s located on your server here: /usr/local/cpanel/api*.txt

    [quote:2bc5a06feb]P.S.-Why is everyone so friendly and helping here? I like it![/quote:2bc5a06feb]i think the majority of us are helpful here because we know that when we have questions/issues with cpanel we would really appreciate help from a fellow host/techie.

    also, if you can help other hosts keep it together, it increases the chances of getting the industry back in shape. lots of downhill hosts have made consumers weary, this needs to be changed, and helping each other is one way of doing this. but that\'s just my opinion on this. others probably have their own reasons. ;)
