    Hi there,

    I have a few Cpanel skins installed - how do I change which on is used - at the moment it is defaulting onto the basic design.

    I have installed the skins via WHM - but just cant activate them.

    Thanks

    Nick

    select 'modify account' from your WHM, you can set your skin there

    Not via whm.
    You could try to write a perl script to do it, but I wouldnt trust my coding to edit all the user files....

    All the files are in /var/cpanel/users and each file, by account name, has a line like &RS=basic&, so you may want to try just downloading all the files there and changing that one line. I've done it that way before and for many changes it is quicker.

    You can set the skin in the package setup so the accounts will be created with the one you want.

    Just add a new package (or edit an existing one) and set the default theme to the one you want.
