WHM Hosting Package Extensions

Introduction

Package extensions add custom fields to packages and accounts. These fields can accept customized non-standard variables that you can use in your cPanel & WHM applications or scripts.

Important:

  • WHM will only recognize the package extension if you save the default settings file and the template (.tt2) file with identical filenames.
    • For example, if dog is the default settings file, then dog.tt2 must be the template file.
  • Extension filenames cannot contain spaces.
  • WHM users cannot add package extensions that are named 0 from WHM's Add a Package interface (Home >> Packages >> Add a Package). Instead, they must use the WHM API to add that extension.

WHM interfaces

WHM users can access package extensions in the following interfaces:

  • Add and configure extensions to hosting plans (packages) in WHM's Add a Package interface (Home >> Packages >> Add a Package).
  • Configure a hosting plan's extensions in WHM's Edit a Package interface (Home >> Packages >> Edit a Package).
  • Configure the chosen hosting plan's extensions when you select options manually in WHM's Create a New Account interface (Home >> Account Functions >> Create a New Account) or WHM's Modify an Account interface (Home >> Account Functions >> Modify an Account).
