bl00dh0und,

I am not exactly sure what you are asking for? What do you want the scripts to do? Are you asking about setting up the ability to use CGI scripts from within apache? Can you be more specific so we can try to provide you with some help?

I would imagine it somewhat depends upon how many people you are expecting to allow to sign up.

Can you give us some idea of how many people per day?

What kind of websites will you allow to be hosted?

Is it paid or free?

These may seem like irrelivant questions, but to me they have everything to do with what you are talking about.

As far as I am aware there are no scripts to do this particular task with EnGarde Community version at the moment.

Some more details would be handy though as the subject has so much scope.

The questions I would ask are :

Are you going to host under a username, choosen subdir, subdomain, domain name?

Do you intend to limit the amount of users or and bandwidth, applicants by country or IPs or blocks?

Perhaps the most important is what type of services will you supply, just html based, cgi, php, mysql etc etc.

Are you going to offer this to your freinds or everyone on the net?

Does your machinery have redundancy?

Are you in house, co-located or where?

And, is it a paid service?

To understand why I am asking these questions you may want to download EnGarde then set up some domains on a test machine, then delve into the area of "security policies" which will give you a better idea of what you are asking as regards any changes to the security of EnGarde for the level of services you require.

There is enough information in the Wiki to get a good understanding of the system regarding any issues you may have.

As regards to scripts I would check out : http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Programs_a ... mmunities/


As regards to obtaining much knowledge in this area there is a forum called http://webhostingtalk.com/ where you can talk to folk who have a great wealth of information regarding the subject.
