    Hi,

    Upon attempting to create an initial account through WHM (Account Functions->Create a New Account), I receive the following error:

    Missing SCRIPTALIAS Config Line in /etc/wwwacct.conf

    Could anyone please offer some insight into why I may be receiving this error, and/or any possible solutions?

    Thank you in advance. :)

    -Tyler

    Hi, thanks for your help.

    I followed the instructions you provided, while logged in as root, but received the following error:

    pico: Command not found

    If it is of any help, i'm running a dedicated, FreeBSD 5.4-RELEASE i386, box.

    Or you can do it with the default text editor - vi (if pico is not installed on your server)...

    Basic commands:

    vi file - opens a file
    I - opens Insert mode, so you can insert your code/corrections
    ESCAPE - exits the INSERT mode
    :q! - exits a file without making any changes
    :wq - saves the file and exits it
