WHMSonic redirecting to x3 skin after RVSkin Uninstall


Oct 3, 2010
Hi, I've been trying to figure out what went wrong after uninstalling RVSkin which broke the WHMSonic redirection to the Csonic template.

I couldn't find anywhere the solution, I've requested support to WHMSonic team and they never answered my ticket, fortunately I found the solution by myself and I want to share it with the community.

You must be root to do all these steps

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Uninstall RVSkin in a cPanel that has WHMSonic plugin installed.
  2. Login to a WHMSonic account via :2082
  3. The account will redirect you to x3 skin instead of Csonic template

Solution (I used WinSCP since I'm a Linux Newbie)
  • Login to the server with WinSCP
  • Locate folder /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend
  • There should be a folder named sonic if not, then we need to create the folder in lowercase
  • Now inside the sonic folder we need 2 files and a shortcut, create a file named dynamicui.conf then create another file named index.html
  • The index.html must have this source code:
    <META http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=csonic/index.php?mode=0">
  • Finally create a shortcut named csonic which should point to /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/csonic

Voilà WHMSonic should redirect normally to the csonic skin instead of x3 Skin.

I hope this information could help you if you ever face with this problem.

Regards to everyone.
