    Hopefully this is a simple question...but I cant find an answer or figure it out

    I want to add an account...call that account msouth

    I want msouth to be able to add multiple websites

    ex site1.com site2.net etc

    id like them to go into the directory

    /usr/home/msouth/www/site1.com (this would contain the cgibin dir and htdocs dir for this site)
    /usr/home/msouth/www/site2.net (this would contain the cgibin dir and htdocs dir for this site)

    and so on

    I cant for the life of me figure this out...do I have to have a seperate account for every website?

    Thanks for any help on this

    got it apparently this question gets asked a lot....heres a simple explanation

    set up your user in WHM

    got to the users cpanel

    click addon domains

    enter the domain name ex. mydomain.com
    in the directory enter the users name (thats all ... its the same username as the cpanel user)
    enter the password

    this will set it up in the users home directory/www

    the ftp addy will be ftp.mydomain.com the username will be mydomain.com
    and the password will be the password specified

    thanks to the good folks at www.gofuckyourself.com for explaining this (thats a real site and its a HUGE webmaster resource forum
