1. We made every effort to make our module as easy to install, configure and use, as possible. Therefore we paid special attention to displayed messages.

Read carefully each message, follow the instructions and you shall have no problems with using the module.

2. Operations performed on the virtual servers are not executed immediately. Give your SolusVM server some time to process the request and execution of operation.

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!

Common Problems

1. When you have problems with connection, check whether your SELinux or firewall does not block ports.
2. The vast majority of problems are connected with misconfigured SolusVM server or misconfigured servers/products in your WHMCS.

Firstly, make sure that your SolusVM server has properly configured virtual servers, nodes, node groups, templates, plans and API access.
In most cases, appropriate SolusVM server configuration guarantees correct operation of the module.
Afterwards, check your WHMCS server connection and products settings. If you are certain that everything is correct, use our Debug Mode.

3. By default our module connects with SolusVM server on port 5353. If you are using different port, you need to specify it in 'Hostname' field.

Default port for SSL connections is 5656. To connect on that port enter your hostname as follows: '' . Keep in mind that you can connect on any port.
Field below 'Tick to use SSL Mode for Connections' switches connection type between http and https. Note that this is something different from choosing the port to connect.
