Firstly, you need to enable one of the two auto-installation managers. To do so, go to 'Addons' → 'DirectAdmin Extended' → 'Features'.
Press the 'Configure' button next to the product you are interested in. Then, find the 'Applications ' box.
Enable the 'Install Applications' checkbox, select the autoinstaller from a dropdown menu (you can choose 'Installatron' or 'Softaculous' ).
You can also choose a desired language of the application by entering value into the 'Language' field. Complete list of language codes can be found here.

Management of Autoinstalled Applications

To set up DirectAdmin Extended product with the autoinstalled app, follow these steps:

In the beginning, go to 'Product/Services', find your product connected with DirectAdmin Extended and enter 'Module Settings' tab.
Press 'Generate Custom Fields' to automatically create the required fields.

DA3 55 1.png

Remember to set the field type as 'Text Box', tick 'Required Field ' and/or 'Show on Order Form' exactly as it is shown on the screen below.

Note 1: 'Site Description' is needed only for Softaculous autoinstaller.
Note 2: 'Database Name', 'Database Username', 'Database Password' and 'Table Prefix' fields do not need to be filled upon ordering product by a client.
If they are not filled, the database will be automatically generated.
Note 3: For the Installatron autoinstaller use 'Site Title' in place of 'Site Name'.

Configurable Options For Application Auto Install

Let your clients decide which application they would like to install on their new DirectAdmin account.

While placing an order, your customer can choose an application which will be installed upon account creation.
There is nothing else you need to do. The application will be ready to use instantly!
To set up this feature, return to the configuration of your product, find the 'Applications' section, activate 'Install Applications', choose 'Auto Installer' and activate 'Use Configurable Options'.

Go back to the list of products and click on a download icon to view the applications list.
DA3 59.png
These are the names of values that you can enter in the fields of configurable options. We will configure them in the next step.

For example, if you would like to set up 'Drupal' in your applications list, you will need to enter the 'Drupal 7.59' or 'Drupal' value.
1. If you have made a mistake with the application name, the auto installer will not work.
2. If you do not enter the version number, the auto installer will install the latest version of the application.
Now that you know what values should be entered in configurable options for particular applications, we can proceed further.

DA3 60.png
Go to your 'WHMCS' 'Setup' 'Products/Services' 'Configurable Options' and press 'Create a New Group' .
DA3 61.png
Enter the group name of your choice, select the product to which you want to assign configurable, then press 'Save Changes' .
DA3 62.png
Now click on 'Add New Configurable Option' .
DA3 63.png
This moment is very important. As 'Option Name', you have to enter 'Installation App'. Otherwise the entire functionality will not work.

Here you can set up as many applications as you want. To do so, enter a value name, e.g. 'WordPress 4.9.8' and press 'Save Changes' .
Repeat this as many times as you need and do not forget to set 'Option Type' to 'Dropdown' .

Remember that if you do not provide the version number of the application, the latest version will be installed.

DA3 64.png
As you can see on the following screen, we decided to offer our customers five applications.

When you finish adding applications, press 'Save Changes' and 'Close Window'.

DA3 65.png
You can also create a new configurable option - Auto Backup On Update with the 'Yes/No' type.

This option is used to enable the creation of auto update backups for the first chosen application after the initial order in WHMCS.
Please note that this option works only with Installatron plugin and Auto Update Backup Enabled By Default On Order setting in the module features has to be disabled to make this configurable option work properly.

DA3 65 1.png
Afterwards, come back to 'DirectAdmin Extended Features' 'Configuration' 'Applications' , activate 'Use Configurable Options' and choose 'Apps/Configurable Options' from a dropdown menu.

Please note that you can have more configurable options groups at your disposal. Press 'Save' . You have just successfully assigned configurable options to the application autoinstall.

DA3 74.png

Tips

1. Keep in mind that user packages and reseller packages are two different things.

When you configure a typical product for your customers in the WHMCS, you would usually need to enter one of your user packages, not the reseller packages.

2. To manage SSL certificates, your customers require the owned IP address.

Otherwise, the module will return the following error: 'You can manage SSL certificates when you own the IP you are using. Info for admins: Assign an owned IP'.

To add the owned IP address, log in to your DirectAdmin admin area, go to the 'IP Management' section, add the IP and assign it to the admin.
DA 76.png
Afterwards, manage the user for whom you want to add the IP address.

Set IP to your previously created IP address, save changes and make sure that this IP will be the current IP address of your customer.

DA 77.png
If you add more IP addresses with free status in your DirectAdmin, you can quickly assign those IP addresses to your customers in WHMCS.

For this purpose, simply type the IP in the 'Dedicated IP' field, press 'Enter' on your keyboard and update the product package by clicking on the 'Change Package' button.

DA 78.png
3. As this module supports templates system, any changes made in the module's template files will be saved after the upgrade process.
4. Backups management in DirectAdmin panel:

Admin Backups:

  • Log into Your DirectAdmin Panel and find Admin Backup/Transfer and create a new one.
  • Select your user and define 'When', 'Where' - set to Local and 'What' to backup.
  • Go back to WHMCS → Addons → DirectAdmin Extended → Features (of the backed up product) → Backups. Fill out the 'Backup Directory Paths' with the very same data as in the panel.


FTP Backups:

  • Log into Your DirectAdmin Panel and find Admin Backup/Transfer and create a new one.
  • Select your user ('Who') and define 'When', 'Where' - set to FTP and 'What' to backup.
  • Go back to WHMCS → Addons → DirectAdmin Extended → Features (of the backed up product) → Backups. Fill out the ' 'FTP Backup Endpoints' with the very same data as in the panel.


Update Instructions

Essential guidance through the process of updating the module is offered here.

Keep in mind there is a quick and easy option in our client area that will let you upgrade the license of your module to an open source version at any time - and at a lower price!
To take advantage of it, simply use the License Upgrade button located on the product's page and a discounted invoice will be generated automatically.

When migrating your product from version 2.x to 3.x, you must deactivate your old addon (version prior to 3.x.x) and then activate the new one (v3.x.x) to successfully migrate your current settings. (Please ignore point 8 of our modules update instruction).

No other additional steps are required to keep your addon's configuration and products' settings.

Common Problems

1. When you have problems with connection, check whether your SELinux or firewall does not block ports.
2. If you have problems with connection make sure that port 2222 is open.
3. If you run into an ionCube encoder problem (wrong version) after the installation, please open a support ticket.

We will provide you with a different version of the module encrypted with the older version of ionCube.

4. You cannot change DirectAdmin port to other than 2222, due to WHMCS DirectAdmin module limitation.

DirectAdmin Extended For WHMCS relies on a default WHMCS DirectAdmin module.

5. DirectAdmin Extended For WHMCS module functions only on the administrator account.
6. Change Package option currently does not support the Configurable Options.
7. If you encounter error: 'Unexpected Module Error(Token 'f80e57b1be9752d7d4658434bd55aafa2'). Please Contact Administrator.' displayed in the client area,

reissue your license in our client area, if that does not help, please contact our support department.
