Thanks. I did get it working to a point. I had to grant privileges to the host servers mysql to allow the install to work (and open firewall rules as well) ... so it's in there and i can now create domains and such. However it's not creating the files or file structure on the remote server. If i create a site on the main server it works fine and the directories show up ... but when i create on the other one it doesn't. Are there scripts that create remote directories and such? how is that supposed to function and is there something i need to allow to make that happen? I assume it has something to do with API calls.
any help is appreciated.
