    Hello, i just ordered modernbill + Cpanel, and i was wondering if anyone had a tutorial or would like to help create one for everyone to use based on how to setup plans that work with both programs, and how to make cPanel function with Modernbill correctly. i would be very interested in helping once i learn the system better. :)

    There's no step by step needed. The documentation spells out completely how to do everything (and I mean everything).

    -- Generate key in WHM

    -- in modernbill, go to tools->system config-> Server API ->CPanel. Edit that section, make sure to enable it

    -- in modernbill, go to tools->system->server API config, change that correctly, make sure that you have things as you want them.

    -- in modernbill, setup the ordering packages, etc. When you're done with them, go back, click on the package (from the package setup menu), you'll see (at the bottom) Insert CPanel attributes. Go in there, insert all the attributes you need. Generally, I don't even setup a plan in WHM for them, I just use the modernbill attributes. Haven't had a problem with that in any way.

    -- in modernbill, setup the bandwidth stuff (how much they get, how much extra, all that stuff). That's right next to the CPanel features.

    -- Edit whatever group you use to set the packages up in (in modernbill), choose no username, no password (these will cause problems with modernbill unfortunately, I have yet to find a way around them), set max username to 8 characters, minimum to whatever you want (2 I think is the minimum, but who knows). If you don't change the max username, mb will try to create 10 character usernames and cpanel will throw a big ol hissy fit about it (though I think 10 character usernames are just fine myself).

    -- from the shell, edit your crontab to auto-insert the queue if you want it to. I have mine checked and inserted every 10 minutes.

    I've done this myself, tested it and had no problems at all.
