  I need a WHMCS Developer Licence
Posted by: foster - 11-25-2017, 06:45 AM - Forum: WHMCS Question - No Replies

I need a WHMCS Developers Licence for testing purposes on my server, I need it to test out themes and other stuff when I actually buy WHMCS.
I am only going to be running it on localhost mainly because I do not want other people trying to purchase somehow?
Other than that hopefully it is free because I need it free for the moment so I can do this testing, also I'll need the download. [Image: smile.png]

a developers license would be free, but in order to get one, you already need to have a license direct from WHMCS... catch-22 Smile


therefore, the only legal way to do what you want would be to purchase a license from WHMCS - although ironically, if you do that, then you won't need to get a developers license. :-P

you could buy & try it for 30 days, and if it's not suitable for your needs, contact WHMCS for a refund.

Can't understand. To test Themes and other stuff, means that you must buy them before. How you'll spend money to buy themes and addons, while you haven't decided yet if you'll use WHMCS or not?

Sadly, WHMCS does not have a monthly addon price for the license fees they only have now. I could see the one off prices when they sold owned licenses, but now it's kind of redundant. Maybe WHMCS could consider changing that too. Since they changed the price.

I know it. I had the owned licens, plus projects, plus license manager, plus mobile apps, plus chat and I sold all of them 2years ago for just $250. And now I'm in monthly plan Sad

If you have a server, surely you can afford a month of WHMCS, no?

why would you get rid of an owned license??

they can have my owned license when they can pry it from my cold dead hands.

Or when they "pull a Kayako" and make renewals so expensive and unpalatable that you have no choice.

And when that happens WHMCS will lose clients. Hundreds if not thousands of them.

Kayako committed self-murder in the process as well. You can't-do that if you release a buggy software, unstable and that has nothing but problems. Almost every company I know that used Kayako in the past is not using them anymore. I wonder why...

I stopped using Kayako (unlimited license) a lot of time before they even announced all those changes. Also, I would never consider a software like as a cloud service. There is way too much sensitive business data on the support system. I'm sure a lot of companies can't even use that for compliance reasons.

  install WHMCS on root of domain or subdomain?
Posted by: foster - 11-25-2017, 06:41 AM - Forum: WHMCS Question - No Replies

im quite new to WHMCS, setting up a wbhosting part of my Company, when installing WHMCS is ther anything to Think about wether I install it in a folder under http://www.mydomain.com/xx/WHMCS
or should i use a subdomain as http://www.management.mydomain.com and install it right in the root folder of that?
thank you for your time

Where you install it is up to you. If you intend on using WHMCS as your whole site, use the main domain and root folder. If you intend to build a site around WHMCS, then use a sub-folder or sub-domain.

It all depends on your own business needs.

Thanks Andrew

is ther anything else in general to keep in mind when choosing the structure? my plan is yet to build a site around WHMCS, i dont really have a Picture of how it will wok or look like if i use just WHMCS.

  WHMCS For Free Hosting Services?
Posted by: foster - 11-25-2017, 06:40 AM - Forum: WHMCS Question - No Replies

I would like to offer free hosting on my server and i need some answers-
Can the clients register Subdomains on my main domain?
Can he have the option to choose between His domain, or Subdomain on my domain? How?
I want to disable the option to register a domain, i just need an option for him to use his own domain on the free hosting, or use a subdomain..
Is it possible to offer several domains, so he can choose on which one he want to create his subdomain? how?

Thanks for your interest in WHMCS.

All these options are available to you in the WHMCS software. You can configure which subdomains to offer customers on the orderform on a per-product basis.

If you do not wish to offer domain registration or transfer, the options can be disabled in the General Settings, as can the option to allow customers to use their existing domains: https://docs.whmcs.com/Domains_Tab#Domai...on_Options

  Project Management demo
Posted by: foster - 11-25-2017, 06:36 AM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

I looked but cannot find one - is there a demo of the Project Management addon found at http://www.whmcs.com/addons/project-management ?
I am looking to purchase an addon to keep track of hour worked on different projects for different customers, but need it to work in an easy manner and will also need to be able to add different tasks to projects such as 'Admin' and 'Development' for which I charge different hourly rates.

A demo of the project management addon can be found here:


Ah brilliant - only just see that this has been updated.

I'll take a look as soon as I can find the username and password

I have had a very quick play with the addon, but it don't seem to do what I am looking for.

Is there a similar addon/feature that will let me enter items into an invoice, but instead of generating an invoice for the user when I enter the data, only have it generate at the end of the month?

At the moment, I keep track of time spent working for a client on a spreadsheet and have to copy from the spreadsheet onto a new invoice on the last day of each month.

If I could have WHMCS automatically generate this invoice for me it would save me a lot of time.

I dont want the client to be able to see the invoice, or its contents, until its generated at the end of the month - kind of like the same way a phone bill is generated each month - you cant see the bill until the end of the month, but the network keep track of all calls and costs throughout the month and their system generates the bill automatically.

Due Date


Client Project

Due 735344 Days Ago

Billable items in whmcs?

Yeah, found a bgug with that also - when I set the due date to empty, because there is no due date, it's an ongoing project, it told me it was due 735344 days ago. Didnt even alert me to say it required a date or not so I dont really to part with that much money for an addon which hasnt been tested fully for things like that - not yet anyway.

I havent ever really used billable items, from the documentation I read on them I never had a use for them - I always just entered items directly into an invoice.

Would billable items do what I want? Because if I remember rightly, they get immediately added to an invoice dont they? So the user would then be able to see the invoice as soon as I add a billable item? I may be wrong though.

No they don't. When you create an item you can choose from the following;

Don't Invoice for Now (and later create an invoice when you want to)

Invoice on Next Cron Run

Add to User's Next Invoice

Invoice as Normal for Due Date

Recur Every X period for Y times

You can also invoice directly from tickets if that is more convenient.

That should work.

How can I have WHMCS automatically create in invoice for a specific client on the last day of each month though since the day will vary between 28th, 29th, 30th and 31st.

Or can I make it generate the invoice on the first of the month and have it add all billable items from the previous month to it? Maybe that would be better.

The demo link is no ,onger works, does anyone have an updated link to see a demo of the project management add on in action?

i'm not aware if there is one... when WHMCS took their demo down (last year I think), the only other live WHMCS demo I was aware of is the Softaculous demo - but the admin side hasn't worked for months (and I don't think it includes the Project Management addon anyway).


I want to see the project management add on though and I'm assuming the Softaculous demo won't have any add-ons active and there isn't a trial version

I can confirm that the 30 day money-back guarantee applies to the project management addon too.

All the information we have on the addon is located at:

If you have any specific questions about functionality, please don't hesitate to ask.

  .PK Domain Name integration
Posted by: foster - 11-25-2017, 06:34 AM - Forum: Domain Names - No Replies

Has anyone integrated .PK domain names in WHMCS?
What's match string and whois information? Please help.

yes, i was to integrate it for one of my clients, after searching a little i found the solution when i was checking this domain .PK Domain Provider which is offering all PK domains whois search and registration.


You will find the code and path from above link to integrate .pk in your whmcs, once after doing that, add a .pk extension in your whmcs admin and set the price, i am sure it will work for you.

  WHMCS with plesk / whm on 1 licence
Posted by: foster - 11-25-2017, 06:32 AM - Forum: WHMCS Question - No Replies

Hi guys,
We are looking to swap suppliers for our hosting. Our new supplier servers are linux running WHM/cPanel or Plesk.
WHM does not work for us as you cannot limit email mailbox sizes so we are going for plesk with WHMCS.
What i would like to know is, can WHMCS support both Plesk and WHM/cPanel with 1 licence all in 1 WHMCS login area? Our supplier gives us the option for a little extra £ to provide both control panels to customers but i cant seem to find an answer to this anyway and not keen on having to pay for 2 licences per month

Yes, it can. The server you connect to to provision accounts isn't connected to the license, it's just a matter of if WHMCS supports interacting with it.



I know you can limit it at the customer cPanel level but you cant via WHM that I know off? We have a bunch of email only packages sold to customers and cant move onto WHM when you cant limit the mailboxes. Looks like it was requested about 3 years ago as a feature addon and getting some limelight recently but still who knows when it maybe out.

  WHMCS licence Reseller
Posted by: foster - 11-25-2017, 06:24 AM - Forum: WHMCS Question - No Replies

was wondering which WHMCS reseller is the best and cheapest to go with because I may be starting up a web hosting company soon...


There are none any longer, as WHMCS stopped allowing third party stand alone sales a while back.

You can only get a third party license from a host when you buy an account from them to host your site. It can only be used with that host.

  E-mail, domain, WHMC and plesk ask
Posted by: foster - 11-25-2017, 06:23 AM - Forum: WHMCS Question - No Replies

Hi masters,
I need two solutions and I wonder if WHMC will let me do this.
1. I need a solution so that when you register your account you can immediately select a name for your mail account. WHMC + PLESK - will you be able to do something like this?
2. When registering a new domain and new account (WHMC + PLESK) - create a mailbox immediately for the newly registered domain.
Thank you in advance for your replies.

Yes, but it is not something WHMCS does out of the box. You need to create some hook or API in the WHMCS ordering process or after it, which executes the API call on Plesk servers to create the email account.
Customers orders with WHMCS, WHMCS is able to auto provision the Plesk account, this can be done with WHMCS by default. If you take the name in the order cart or you have it hard coded with a fixed name, you then create a hook in WHMCS that automatically executes after the Plesk account was created. This code would basically connect to the Plesk API and create the email account with what ever parameters you passed.
You would need to do some coding or hire a developer but this is definitely possible.

  Recommendations to backup storage
Posted by: foster - 11-04-2017, 10:33 AM - Forum: web hosting - No Replies


So I see there is a forum for backups, but it looks like it's only for these companies to post their ad.

I'd like to see some recommendations from others where we can backup from CPanel FTP (automated) to the backup location.

I'm not sure how much space we need.

I don't want Amazon. I tried to sign up with them before & had nothing but issues with them. [Image: frown.gif]

I was thinking of going the Google Drive route, but that's a last resort.

I did do some searching around before, but ALL of the places I looked into were either way too expensive, or had terrible reviews. We aren't looking to pay $300/month for 500 GB b/c then we could just backup at the hoster for that price.



Quote:You should look at filetruth, they've got very good pricing on storage servers.
