Hi guys,

If a reseller wants to do up his own cpanel skin/theme, how do we do that without giving him access to the root?

for cpanel skin:
ln -s /home/{account_dir}/{skin_dir} /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/{skin_name}

and for language file:
ln -s /home/{account_dir}/{language_file} /usr/local/cpanel/lang/{language_name}

then you can copy default skin (x2) and english language file to his dir that he can customize it ...

Kuniosek,

It does not work!
I manage to link it as you instructed, copy the x skin folder into his folder but for some reason he cant access the folder from WS_FTP.

WHat do you think is wrong?

Roy,

did you chown the directories to be owned by that user?

Kosmo,

How do I do that?

Like this?
chown {username} /home/{account_dir}/{skin_dir} ??
