Hi,

I was reading the cPanel documentation about /scripts/wwwacct I saw that these scripts or hooks will be or are already deprecated and the documentation seems not accurate about the parameters name compared with /scripts/wwwacct --help

What is the status about?

I have command line applications in Bash and Perl that rely on these scripts

https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/SDK/Guide+to+Standardized+Hooks+-+Script+Hooks

/scripts/wwwacct --help
Please use the following syntax:
wwwacct <domain> <user> <pass> <quota> <cpmod[advanced/?]> <ip[y/n]> <cgi[y/n]> <frontpage[always n]> <maxftp> <maxsql> <maxpop> <maxlst> <maxsub> <bwlimit> <hasshell[y]/[n]> <owner> <plan> <maxpark> <maxaddon> <featurelist> <contactemail> <use_registered_nameservers> <language>

Hello :)

There are no immediate plans to remove the functionality of /scripts/wwwacct from cPanel/WHM, however you could convert your scripts to use our API should that happen:

WHM API 1 Functions - createacct

You would see a notification well in advance before the removal of /scripts/wwwacct if that were to happen.

Thank you.
