Installation and Configuration
|In this short tutorial we will show you how to successfully install WordPress Manager For WHMCS.|
We will guide you step by step through the whole installation process.
|1. Log in to our client area and download the module.|
|2. In the downloaded file you will find two packages that support different PHP versions.|
As presented on the screen below, the first one is dedicated to PHP 5.6 up to PHP 7.0, while the second one is aimed at PHP 7.1 up to PHP 7.2.
It does not apply to open source versions.
Note: You can check the current PHP version in your WHMCS. To do so, proceed to 'Utilities' › 'System' › 'PHP Info'.
|3. Choose the one with the right PHP version. In the package you will find another two folders.|
As presented on the screen below, the first one is supposed to be installed on WHM (cPanel), while the second one is aimed at WHMCS.
cPanel (WHM) Installation
|1. Upload and extract the 'UploadToWHM' folder into the /root cPanel directory.|
Files in your cPanel /root/uploadToWHM/ directory should look like these on the following screen.
|2. Once the module is uploaded, enter the /root/uploadToWHM/ catalog and run the following command in the console:|
After a brief moment you should see a confirmation that the plugin has been successfully installed.
|1. Extract the 'modules' catalog into the main WHMCS directory.|
|2. When you install WordPress Manager For WHMCS for the first time, you have to rename the 'license_RENAME.php' file.|
This file is located in 'modules/addons/wordpress_manager/license_RENAME.php.' Rename it from 'license_RENAME.php' to 'license.php'.
|3. In order to configure your license key, you have to edit the previously renamed 'license.php' file.|
Enter your license key between quotation marks as presented on the following screen. You can find your license key in our client area → 'My Products'.
|4. In the next step, set up the 'storage' folder as recursively writable.|
This folder is available at 'your_whmcs/modules/addons/WordpressManager/' .
|5. Now you have to activate the module in your WHMCS system.|
Log in to your WHMCS admin area. Click 'Setup' , then choose 'Addon Modules'.
|6. Then, you need to permit access to this module. To do so, click on the 'Configure' button, choose 'Full Administrator' and press 'Save Changes'.|
|7. Now you have to add a cron job as shown below (5 - 10 minutes interval is recommended).|
php -q /your_whmcs/modules/addons/WordPressManager/cron/cron.php Synchronize
Do not forget to replace 'your_whmcs' with your WHMCS root location.
|8. Good job! You have just successfully installed WordPress Manager For WHMCS! Now in your WHMCS press 'Addons' and then 'WordPress Manager'.|
|This section has been divided into two main parts to allow full and, at the same time, easy understanding of the functionality of the whole module.|
In the first part 'Management of Addon' you will see a general outlook of the module's basic configuration, through the product management from the admin area.
The second part describes additional settings and tools concerning WordPress installations that can be used while working in the client area.
|Now that your module is already configured, you may access it from 'Addons' → 'WordPress Manager' .|
| 'Home' should be your first choice. |
In this section you will see all active WordPress installations and the list of the clients who already have them.
|In the 'Product Settings' section you can see the list of compatible products that WordPress can be configured with.|
|Activate your product and press the 'Edit' button marked with the green arrow.|
|Enabling Debug Mode will result in the module's activity details being gathered in the 'Logs' tab.|
|All module activities are recorded in the section named 'Logs' .|
|All entries can be deleted separately. To do that, just click the button marked on the screen below.|
|Keep in mind that you can remove multiple logs at once.|
|Now that you already have the module configured, you may see the process of adding and and managing the WordPress installations by your clients.|
While in the client area, find the button 'My Services' and go to the section presented on the following screen.
|Choose your product and enter its details.|
|Now, move directly to the 'WordPress Management' section.|
|Next, you will need to add a new installation. Press the button marked on the screen below.|
| Fill in the fields. Note that only those marked with * (e.g. Database Name) are required to complete the creation:
|Once you have successfully created a new installation, you can edit its advanced options (the green arrow) or simply remove it in case you no longer need it (the red arrow).|
Let us press the green one.
|This is how an example configuration of your installation may look like:|
|In the 'Management' area you can find the following options:
|Here you are enabled to activate, deactivate or update the already existing plugins. You can also add new plugins to your WordPress installation in the 'Add New' tab.|
|To add a new plugin, you are required to type in at least the initial letters of the desired plugin's name into the search field to see the actual results.|
Afterwards, press the symbol marked on the screenshot below, and confirm your choice in the window that should be visible on your screen.
|The 'Mass Action' feature is also present in this section, so you will be able to handle multiple plugins more efficiently and at the same time.|
|As the name suggests, this section provides you with an ability to add or modify backups.|
You are allowed to download, restore and delete a particular backup.
|Here you can delete multiple backups at once.|
See the screenshot below.
|1. In case you wish to remove one of your plugins from WHM, make sure you delete the additional content too:
|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!
