    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?
