This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Set up 5 domains and set the document root to be the appropriate directory? – Marc B May 6 '12 at 22:44

If you've access to httpd.conf file, you just need to change root directory of the VirtualHost configuration of / ... change root directory to /www/doamain1, /www/domain2, etc ...

It's hard to tell from the information provided if you literally mean /www/domain1 etc. If so the answer above would be your best solution but remember to make those changes in the appropriate EasyApache include file (not directly to httpd.conf). You can find these paths documented at:

If you just mean (some arbitrary path)/domain1 and (some arbitrary path)/domain2 - then options open up. First, you can create and as separate cPanel accounts, meaning they would go to /home/domain1 and /home/domain2 assuming domain1 and domain2 are 8 characters or less.

Alternatively, you could create a single cPanel account then add and as addon domains, which would put them in /home/(cpanel username)/(any path you desire) as you can specify any path within that cPanel user's home directory to be the document root for that domain when you are creading the addon domain, as detailed here:

Of course, with root access to a server, you could always symlink /www/domain1 etc. to the location cPanel & WHM uses.
