Might help to provide commands that can be run across many Unix and Linux platforms. /scripts is as directory you created. Fine- we can deal with that, but the contents of your 'rickrollyes' file are unknown, and because it's a custom script, with no description or knowledge about its contents, it doesn't belong here.

I think this is dumb and in no way a command-line trick at all. It requires a cPanel server which provides the /scripts folder and the required perl modules to run the script. Also why would you do this to you clients?

atoponce -- /scripts is the cpanel utilities dir. Presumably rickrollyes is part of cpanel. Puke.

Just had a buddy check -- this doesn't even ship in standard cpanel, so this is a useless command in the extreme.
