In The Laboratory

I've been trying to find out the right way to implement labs (and other subsites) with WHM/CPanel.

Turns out that there isn't one. You can only do it the wrong way. Well, as far as I can see, anyway.

All I want is:

Another domain name.
Under an existing user.
That points to a different directory.
A directory under that user's account.
But not a subdirectory of their main web site.
As far as I can tell, neither CPanel nor WHM will let you do that. It's trivial with Apache.

So I just went and hacked the Apache configuration file. That works, at least.

I'll do the other labs shortly. MookieLab I fudged because Mookie needed it for her blog to work, so I'll need to go back and redo that one.
