Hi,

Can someone please tell me how to view/edit the "default" and "disabled" special feature lists in Feature Manager. These lists don't appear in the "Edit a Feature List" drop-down box.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Not sure what that means -- I am very new to this!

I purchased a reseller account from HostGator and I am logged into that. I am in the process of setting up web hosting packages but, as I said, I am very new to this. In the Packages section, I came across Feature Manager and there it states:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The feature manager allows you to disable/enable features inside of each users cPanel. Once you build a feature list you should edit the package you wish to assign it to and add the feature list.

The feature lists for cPAddons (user installable scripts) can be found by following the link in the feature list editor
Two special feature lists called "default" and "disabled" will affect all users.
If you disable a feature in the "default" feature it will be disabled in every users' cPanel, unless another feature list grants them the feature.
If you disable a feature in the "disabled" feature it will be disabled in every users' cPanel. Unlike the "default" feature list no other feature list will be able to override this and grant the feature. If you don't want anyone to be able to turn this feature on at all, disable it in this list.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So, I just want to know what is contained in the "default" and "disable" feature lists. But I can't find any means to view them as they don't appear in the "Edit a Feature List" drop-down box.

I am not interested in selling web hosting to others at present. I just want to use the reseller package to host multiple domains.

Hope that makes sense and thanks for your interest.

Since you only have a reseller account, you do not have access to those special feature lists. Instead, if you desire to limit functionality, you should create your own feature list and ensure it is assigned to any package you assign to your users.

Thanks for clarifying that, David.

OK, I am still a little confused. So the "default" and "disabled" feature lists exist but I can't view or edit them because I only have a reseller account. Is that correct? If so, then the feature lists I create could be overriden by the settings in the "disabled" list. For example, I might want to enable Addon Domains but this setting may be set to "off" (disabled) in the "disabled" list.

Is it possible to create my own "disabled" list and then save it under that name so that it overwrites the standard "disabled" list supplied by WHM?

Thanks for staying with me.

Correct. Those feature lists affect all accounts server-wide. Resellers generally do not have access to any functionality that could affect users on the entire server.

If so, then the feature lists I create could be overriden by the settings in the "disabled" list. For example, I might want to enable Addon Domains but this setting may be set to "off" (disabled) in the "disabled" list.
Correct.

Unfortunately, that is not possible at this time. However, you are welcome to submit an official feature request for that at http://bugzilla.cpanel.net
