    hello

    i tried searching first but couldnt really find an answer to my question(s)

    i moved my shared account(with add-on domains) to a vps. for the most part the switch works fine, just having a few problems

    i guess the main question is, is there a way(easy way) to give my add-on domains their own account? i'm sure i'll eventually have to change some info in the config files of some popular php/mysql scripts i use (vB/Jamroom) just wanted to know if there was a way to just give the add-on domains their own account via cPanel/WHM...

    some problems i've been having are:

    i type in addon.com/upload it will take me to addon.main.com/upload(some sites go to the correct url when i add http:// but not others) and i thought that might be a reason some of the software/scripts i use arent working correctly

    also, i just want to give the add-on domains their own account so that each account has their own cPanel login and I dont have to do stuff for friends, they can login their self and what not

    thanks :) sorry if i sucked explaining it or if its been posted before and i just didnt see it, appreciate the help

    Well this has been discussed for many times now :
    Now it depends what you want to go for :
    yes, you just need to backup all the file for that addon domain and deleted it as an addon and then create an account separately for each. But you will not get the mail in the inbox for that addon domain, well you can but it will be a lil wacky. and then copy the files back into public_html folder.

    OR

    And Solution for :
    -- Goto /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf
    -- Search for the VirtualHost entry for that addon domain
    -- Add this just after ServerName entry
    UseCanonicalName Off
    -- Save and exit
    -- /etc/init.d/httpd restart

    Note : Please make sure that you dont mess things in httpd.conf file other wise you have invited trouble.
