    hello there,

    was wondering if there is or if its easy to create a shell script that will let me add domains to a server in bulk (like 200 domain), I want to get a list of domain in a .data file, the script should read the file, create the usernames and group for each domain, set a default password, add to virtualhosting apache, create user folder /home/<user>/

    Is this possible? Is there anything like this out there?

    I don't know, maybe it can run like this...
    cat | \
    while read domain
    echo "Found domain: $domain"

    But than have to do the rest :(

    Can anyone help?

    That shouldn't be too hard even in bash but I'd perfer to use perl. I'll attempt to throw something together (untested)
    for domain in `cat domain`
     mkdir /home/$domain
     chown apache:apache /home/$domain
     cat apache_vhost_template | sed "s/domain_template/$domain" >> /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default
    Not exactly what you asked for but it should do the trick, of course you need to create apache_vhost_template yourself, it should look something like this
    $ cat apache_vhost_template
    <VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName domain_template
    DocumentRoot /home/domain_template
