    Hello

    I am developing a script which does the work of Fantastico, ie creates a database, copies Zen Cart files and basically installs zencart in a folder chosen by the user. I have a couple of questions though:

    (a) I want the link to this script to appear just like we see a link for Fantastico. What is the coding required for this.
    (b) Is the location of files in this script restricted to some particular folder (due to some cpanel limitation(s) ) or can I put the script anywhere (the link to the script will be there so location of files should not be an issue-- thats what I think)

    Thanks
    Arvind

    I think the "sticky" posts in this very section of the forums you've posted in, should help you out. Take a look.

    You can just use our cPanel Plug-in generator to accomplish this. You can find this at: cPanel Plugins - Developer

    Plugin icons can only direct to files within that cPanel theme. You can symlink folders etc. but be sure that the cPanel user (which is a unix user) has proper permissions to access these files.
