    as a reseller the Fantastico icon appears on the reseller Cpanel, but when we setup new packages for customers, the fantastico icon does not appear on their cpanel.
    obviously it’s been disabled and the WHM does not provide a way to enable it
    Please advice

  2. Jose,

    All resellers have the ability to provide Fantastico to their customers. Make sure that they are using the X3 skin on cPanel and that under the Features link in WHM, Fantastico is checked.

  3. Unique grow in net, wonder how good would wordpress for graphics. Look whats say the bing.

  4. Very good… nice blog

  5. Thank you! It worked exactly as stated. I had WordPress installed and it told me it could not install Joomla until the old files were removed. I moved them to an “archive” folder an it worked like a charm.
