FTP to root is not always a good option. There is a solution, though. I've found that SecureFX is a secure FTP program. You can find it at www.vandyke.com. I would NOT recommend using a regular FTP program with root (if its even possible).

1. Create new user (ex : user) for your temporary upload

2. Upload your via FTP to any folder in your /home/user

3. Login with SSH with your user account

4. login to root with SU

5. move to your root skeleton directory

mv /home/user/file.html /root/cpanel3-skel/
[/quote:2189555222]
6. Finish...

Hope this Help ;)

Ok, now here's the tought part. ;)

How does one code an HTML Skeleton page so that it will display:

Future Home Of

&domain name of new account&

It's the Cpanel specific coding to automatically pull in the Domain name for each new account, is where I get lost.

Anyone know?

The way we did was modifying wwwacct to create a new file with the domain information and put it in the newly created home directory, then using an index.php we use the following.

}

$FILEPATH = &FILENAME&;
$FILE = fopen($FILEPATH, &r&);
$a = fgets($FILE, 300);
$b = fgets($FILE, 300);
$c = fgets($FILE, 300);
fclose($FILE);

Where $a=domain $b=IP and $c=username
