    Modernbill??? Shared Environment??? Cpanel???

    Good Evening,

    So for about a week now my hosting company and I have been going back and forth about the setup of modernbill. Several issues have been solved; however, I ran into an interesting one today that they are even confused at.

    I would like to know if in a shared environment such as a reseller account if it is possible to use the API and Cpanel model to set up accounts?

    I configured everything imodernbill in the Cpanel model and it will not connect to the Cpanela nd pull the version up.

    Thanks,

    Matt,

    Not sure who was confused but we have any customers running modernbill on a shared enviroment and provisioning to a shared cpanel/whm environement.

    You simply have to make sure that you are using the remote access hash from whm for the user whose plans are being sold.

    Hey,

    That is the thing. I have read and saw all kinds of hosts run modernbill on a shared environmnet and have every function of Modernbill. Mine when I go to connect popls up an error.

    The tech staff is telling me that I will not have access to the Cpanel database so It will be impossible to do. Do you mind in telling me what I need to do to have it run all the auto accounts and connect to the server?

    Everyone,

    First thing first, my configure for mod_cpanel looks like this:

    Enable cPanel Module: Yes

    Server Name: cpanel01.shared.allmanaged.com

    Set cPanel Host: localhost

    Set cPanel User: hcaz3200

    cPanel AccessHash: xxx access hash is correct

    Use SSL Connections: Yes


    Server Group Configuration


    Set Server Group: Group 1, Default Server Group

    Maximum Accounts: *


    Current Accounts: 0

    Server Fill Order: 1


    Nameserver Configuration


    Nameserver 1: ns.bizhostingnetwork.net
    Nameserver 1 IP: set
    Nameserver 2: ns2.bizhostingnetwork.net
    Nameserver 2 IP: set


    Server Login Configuration


    Server Login URL: http://xx.xxx.xx.xx:2028/

    Username: hcaz3200

    Password: my password


    Now on to the test:


    System Test - cURL
    If you see any settings in red, please review the description for more information.

    PHP cURL Enabled? PHP cURL is available.
    PHP cURL Test? OK

    Path To cURL Set In MB? PHP - Currently Set to: PHP OK

    Basic Curl Connection? OK


    Next window:

    Testing mod_cpanel configuration.
    This tests your module configuration that all required fields are set.



    Host Present. - localhost
    Username Present. - hcaz3200
    Access Hash Present.
    cURL/SSL Setup OK.


    Final screen:

    Testing Basic Connection to server
    This test will see if we can connect to WHM and pull the version

    Connection to mod_cpanel WHM NOT OK. Double Check the Hostname, Username, and Access Hash for mod_cpanel
    Version of mod_cpanel WHM
    Please Fix Errors And Re-Run Test Script


    And the final sceen is when it all goes down here.

    Well from the error it shows the problem to be with the cpanel hash key or the username.

    If you are sure that your reseller whm username is hcaz3200 then you would have to double check the remote access key.

    Try generating a new remote access key if required and paste it in your modernbill without the "------BEGIN WHM ACCESS KEY------" and "-------END WHM ACCESS KEY-------" comments.

    Hi Everyone.

    So generating a new Hash didn't work. I have done it twice and it is still causing problems.

    The username is my username. It rejects root as well which it should since it is on a shared environment.

    Does anyone else have any suggestions?

    Put in a ticket at www.modernsupport.com/modernbill and I am sure one of our many techs can help get this resolved. Please remember that it is memorial day weekend and staffing will be light.
