VPS Reselling with WHMCS

With our WHMCS Provisioning Module you can easily resell our Cloud servers to your customer.

Prerequisites

  1. A WHMCS 7.3.0 installation running PHP 5.6.33. The Modul also works with PHP 7.0.

  2. The following PECL Modules must be installed

    propro-1.0.2.tgz
    raphf-1.1.2.tgz
    yaml-1.3.1.tgz
    pecl_http-2.6.0.tgz
    

    These packets can be installed in Centos-6 as follows

    yum install -y http://rpms.remirepo.net/enterprise/remi-release-6.rpm
    yum install -y php56-php-pecl-http php56-php-pecl-raphf php56-php-pecl-propro php56-php-pecl-raphf php56-php-pecl-yaml
    

    For Centos-7 please use

    yum install -y http://rpms.remirepo.net/enterprise/remi-release-7.rpm
    yum install -y php56-php-pecl-http php56-php-pecl-raphf php56-php-pecl-propro php56-php-pecl-raphf php56-php-pecl-yaml
    

    All extensions are available for PHP 7, too. Just replace the prefix php56 with your desired version, like php70. The modules must be activated by appending these lines

    extension = raphf.so
    extension = propro.so
    extension = http.so
    extension = yaml.so
    

    either to the global php.ini or to a php.ini in the user’s home directory.

    1. The Host nodes reside in different geographical location called zones. Zones are referred to by their zone id (zid). Currently there are the following zones:

      zid zname location
      1 de-dus2 Düsseldorf, Germany, EU
      2 nl-ams1 Amsterdam, The Netherlands, EU
      3 us-lax1 Los Angeles, California, USA
      4 us-dal1 Dallas, Texas, USA
      5 uk-lon1 London, UK
      6 lt-sqq Siauliai, Lithuania

      Create for each zone an Option value as:

      ../../_images/pg08.png
    2. The Operating System Image
