Is there a way to avoid automatic update of cpanel skins?

    We use bluelagoon as the default skin. I removed some options from it manually via ssh but noticed that they quickly returned. I suppose that the reason to this is that the option 'Install and Keep Updated' option is marked in WHM. Is there any way around this problem?

    Thanks

    You could just copy the folder to a new directory, name it whatever you want, or perhaps chattr the folder?

    Copying it is the simplest way. That way, you can add only the features you want. And you can decide when you want to update your 'new Blue' theme. :)

    Thanks for your suggestions. Did you mean the copy function in WHM? - If I do so I suppose that I have to give it another name and would then have to send an announcement to clients about the new skin. Sorry for my ignorance but this is still new to me :)

    Pick a new name for your copy of the bluelagoon theme and copy it:

    cp -pr /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/bluelagon /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/mythemename

    I found this confusing also, but let me clarify just slightly. Ecoutez is saying to simply copy the *folder* with the themename, giving your new folder a new name. I think that's what he's saying.

    The WHM seems just to look at the names of the folders in this location when it's figuring out what themes you have installed.

    If you've made a copy of the bluelagoon folder and named it reallybluelagoon, then WHM will allow you to select the reallybluelagoon theme, make it the default in billing packages, etc.
