How to set an account or alias when creating a website?

In CyberPanel, when you create (add) a website, there is no "account name" or "alias", which is present and useful in many other control panels.

For example, if we use account name "abc" and domain "abcdomain.xyz", we would get:

/home/abc/ as home directory
abc_ prefix for databases
abc_ prefix for MySQL users
abc as valid FTP user
server-ip/~abc as test preview link
etc.

In CyberPanel, the structure is different:
/home/abcdomain.xyz/ as home directory
abcdo_ prefix for databases (first 5? characters)
No FTP user, unless created separately, with owner name as prefix
server-ip:8090/previews/abcdomain.xyz as test preview link

Etc.

Is there a way to add an account name / alias to CyberPanel?

Comments

  • So far this is not possible.
  • One workaround I found is to enter the short account handle (ex. abc) in place of domain name when creating a website , and then set up a domain alias (ex. abcdomain.xyz) to point to it. This way, we get:

    /home/abc/ as home directory
    abc_ prefix for databases
    abc_ prefix for MySQL users

    The downside, issue SSL doesn't work in this configuration.
