    Any one know how the signup.cgi script works for cpanel, or any other automated account set-up scripts.

    Thanks

    wwwact or signup.cgi

    I was looking into just coding at the wwwact script. The main reason that I am going this route is because I can see the methods that I can call against. Is there even a chance that we could get a list of the perl methods and what they accept and return in the signup.cgi? Has anyone been able to code to the signup cgi? The WHM system calls against wwwact for creating acconts. Let me know if you know more.
    cheers

    well from what it looks like if you code to use wwwact then when you use it, it will create the account right away on your system. But if you use the signup.cgi script it looks like maybe it throw\'s it in a queue waiting for authorization from a Admin.

    My advice, Dont automate signups from directly from your website with out authorization from a admin. The reason is that you will get alot of stolen credit cards being used and it\'s going to hurt you more than help. I beleive this is why the signup script uses a queue like system. JMO
