    How about an "addon adder"?! :D

    Would be good to have an interface where we can add our own custom add-ons without having to tear apart the /usr/local/cpanel/addons installer scripts (and not have our hard work erased when cPanel updates!) :eek:

    A simple one, to pack and deploy two basic files into the skeleton dir, along with the accounts not having these two files:
    - favicon.ico
    - robots.txt

    ability to paste in commands that will be run as root.

    Example, I can pasted in


    wget http://domainc.com/file.tar.gz | tar zxvf file.tar.gz |cd file | ./configure file | make | make install


    (with output displayed)

    MrHits; that shell thing you proposed would possibly be unsafe, because if there was someone who managed to guess your whm password (if you have the ACL 'all') they could do some major damage, compared to the minute damage they could cause by rebooting your box or something like that.

    gupi; What would you like me to put in the favicon and robots.txt files (as i am not an expert on this, and am quite lazy myself when it comes to that ;).

    Regards,
    Brent

    I would like to access whm or cpanel from a subdomain instead of on another port, that way that if I have a customer from behind a firewall that is very restrictive, they can get it through ssl or http.

    In the List Accounts page i would like a column with the date of register, but in YYYY-MM-DD format, not the long, text one, or the UNIX time one.

    A 'Red Alert' button (add-on, working together with apf firewall)

    In case of emergency, press the red button, confirm, and the server loads a preset configuration for apf, which blocks all access to the server, except my IP (a set of IPs, preconfigured through this module).

    This can be a very easy way to start a defense plan in case of an attack.


    (another lazyness idea)

    Actually, the WHM password for an account with the 'all' ACL is pretty much as bad as the root password. I agree with your comments about the shell thing being a bad idea though, let's not make it easy! (and there are already products out there that allow that sort of thing).

    My wish list:

    * Ruby on Rails
    * Plone
    * RVSKin link directly from WHM (like Fantastico)
    * Better IMAP support
    * Easier way to brand/customize cpanel
    * Easier way to add our own "add on" third party scripts for customers (such as Mojo mail)
    * Mojo mail
    * More spam/virus fighting applications
    * Ability to easily set up default email quotas (from "unlimited" to say 5 MB) when customer adds a new email account (customer can change the quota)
    * Abiility to add quotas to subdirectories such as www.my_domain/~client (/~client's directory set to 5 MB, for example)

    Note: RVSKIN offers both a WHM addon like Fantastico (and has for a while now) AND the ability to set a default mail quote amount that a user can override.

    That's news to me!!! Am thrilled to hear it. Where do I find this in RVSkin? I've been looking but no luck yet.

    I'm using RVSkin Blue.

    Just log into your server as root via SSH and execute /root/rvadmin/update_autoinstaller.pl

    If you have a really old version of rvskin, then I believe you need to run "auto_rvskin.pl" instead.

    More information can be found at rvskin.com
