Create email account via web form

software development

#1

Does anyone know where I might start to make a script capable of this?

Or, as I’m sure it’s been done by somebody by now, does anyone already have a similar script?


#2

An email account through DH? No script that I know of has been created cause DH, to the best of my knowledge, does not have an API for adding email access that we can access through any scripting language.


#3

Currently the only way to add a mailbox or email address is to use the forms in the Control Panel on the DreamHost secure server.

Thus one would need to use an HTTP protocol library to develop a client capable of connecting to a secure server, handling cookies, and interpeting HTML for detecting error messages. In other words the same thing a web browser does when adding the e-mail address manually.

:cool: Perl / MySQL / HTML+CSS

on the other hand, is it possible to install cpanel on dreamhost?


#5

is it possible to install cpanel on dreamhost?

No. Cpanel isn’t just some web application you can install anywhere. It requires a new server with a very specific configuration, root access, and takes complete control over how pretty much everything on the system is managed.
