    $email_address = $_POST['email_address'];
    $username = $_POST['username'];
    $info = $_POST['info'];

    /* Let's strip some slashes in case the user entered
    any escaped characters. */

    $first_name = stripslashes($first_name);
    $last_name = stripslashes($last_name);
    $email_address = stripslashes($email_address);

    What does this have to do with cPanel other than you've got an account you want to run this on? You might do better to speak with the Author of the script.
