I'm not sure exactly what you're asking...but, maybe something like:

virtualmin create-user --domain --user username --pass password --shell /bin/false

And to make that happen on a remote machine, you'd just use a web client. So, you could use wget or whatever PHP or Perl or Python or Ruby or whatever web client library you like to make a request like this:


I think you'll have to escape the slashes (/) in the URL, but it probably depends on the language and web client library you're using. You'll also have to authenticate, of course. You can see more examples of using the remote API here:,remote_http_api/

And the command line API (which the remote API is merely a wrapper for, so has all the same commands and the same usage) is fully documented here:,command_line_api/


Check out the forum guidelines!
