    Does any one know of a way to login to cpanel without having the login box.

    The most common way is http://username:password@mysite.com:2083/
    however, this does not work with my host. The port # is correct, & i've tried using the ip address rather than "mysite.com"

    The reason I would like to use this method it for auto creation of pop3. The link would be something like :

    fopen ("http://username:password@Server's IP:2082/frontend/Xskin/mail/doaddpop.html?email=$NewEmail&domain=$domain&password=$Password"a=50", "r");

    This is a snippit of a php script, & is not the entire code.

    Thanks for any help anyone can give.

    Do you have root access to the server?

    You have root access as a reseller?

    https = 2083
    http = 2082

    it's for a site i'm using from my reseller account, y would I not have root access?...

    Yes, i've tried both ports with both secure http & without, it used to work but I think since my host has changed to cpanel 10 it altered something. In WHM Auto Pilot, there is a option in each users area to access cpanel directly, with no login screen. I now use iPanel, but I went to their demo & the link was http://username:password@site.com:2082/

    Because your answer of:

    was somewhat on the ambiguous side, firstly saying "yes" to the original question of whether you had root access and then secondly saying "I'm a reseller".

    To be honest, this is the type of answer I would expect from someone not sure of the meaning of the term "root access".

    Clearly you do know what "root access" means, it's just that your answer didn't demonstrate that.

    perhaps if you did spend a few more hours behind a keyboard, you would understand that too much info is missing from your previous posts for anyone to be able to help you. I tend to agree with the other poster that you more then likely don't have root access. Resellers by default do not have root access.

    do you have a dedicated box that you own?
    do you have a VPS reseller account with a hosting company?
    do you have a reseller account with a hosting company?

    answering those simple questions will help others to better direct you in which way you need to write your login script.
