How to install RVskin

You will have to go through below steps to get RVskin installed on your server!!!

1> Firstly, you need to SSH on the server.But mind that the server already has license
for RVskin.Go for the below steps on the shell :

mkdir /root/rvadmin;
cd /root/rvadmin;
tar -xvzf auto_rvskin.tgz; perl

* If you get the question:

The authenticity of host ‘ (’ can’t be established.
RSA key fingerprint is 28:3e:e7:5f:bf:0a:51:f7:39:91:70:9a:2a:6d:e7:e6.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?

Check the fingerprint if it is correct. and type ‘yes’.Then you need to answer a few questions on your shell and wait until the process completes.It will take nearly 2-5 minutes for completion.Anew account “rvadmin” will automatically be created.

2> Then you need to login to your RVskin manager through your WHM >> Add-ons
(right at the bottom)
[If do not find the RV Skin Manager option,close the WHM and relogin to WHM.]

Goto RVskin manager in WHM
* Set global configuration
* Set default language
* Create non-package feature list
* Set tweak setting, reseller feature control, body links, top links, help, tutorial links and etc.
* Test configuration setting in 2 hosting accounts.
# rvadmin: this account can consider to be account belong to root
# reseller’s client: this account will reflect setting from reseller skin manager.
If it is not configued, it will remain anonymous.

3> Changing user cPanel to RVskin themes :

a) You can change the default theme to RVskin theme through your WHM / Server
Setup / Edit Setup.You need to search for ‘ default cpanel skin ‘, and change the
text field to your desired theme.

b) Change RVskin theme to be the default for each hosting package, and change
current hosting account’s theme to RVskin theme.There are 2 ways to do this :

1> Changing in WHM :
In WHM / Packages / Edit Packages and modify hosting account theme for
hosting package one by one. After change,cPanel will try to update current
hosting accounts using this package to the new theme.

2> Changing in SSH :
Change default theme for hosting packages – This way you will not get email
notification (It works only for changing theme, if you want to change others
such as disk quota, don’t do this.Run these commands :

cd /var/cpanel/packages
replace CPMOD=x CPMOD=rvblue — *
replace CPMOD=x2 CPMOD=rvblue — *
replace CPMOD=???? CPMOD=rvblue — *
