Hi,

For hosting companies it is important to have a means for billing.
You do not plan to make a plugin for WHMCS?

We are trying to make our software/OS as generic as possible, with the hopes that vendors will start supporting it in the future.
We see Parallels adopting CL for some of their product lines.
We see the same from InterWorx
Some 3rd parties are working on plugins for cPanel (though I hope that cPanel will add native support at some point).
Hopefully WHMCS and others will do the same. We just don\'t have the bandwidth (nor the right set of skills) to create & maintain plugins for wide range of products present in hosting industry.
Yet, we are really open to working with vendors to help them to integrate our product.

I do not see how WHMCS would have a plugin.... it would go like this:

your control panel Directadmin, Plesk, Cpanel build support into their packages and API for Cloudlinux....

then WHMCS can update their control panel modules to support the new API


In short communication goes like this:
WHMCS -> Control Panel -> Cloudlinux

and not:
WHMCS-> Cloudlinux


So really you need to talk to your control panel company first!

It would be great to have an API where we can set CPU and Memory limits for specific user. we can pass infos with json via http request.
now fr om what I know we only have cli commands and we need to install files on all the servers.
if we have this we can code a plugin for WHMCS wh ere users can but more cpu and memory as they need without interact with sales.

This doesnt make sense... WHMCS manages creating and deleting user accounts on systems through the control panel module....

You dont have users on cloudlinux without some sort of control panel... It would be the control panel module that needed an API

what good would a WHMCS module do... if WHMCS provisions the account through say CPanel or Plesk or Directadmin...

THe control panels are building support in for cloudlinux... it would then be up to WHMCS to add the extra settings to the appropriate module if it be CPanel or whatever

Again WHMCS would not communicate with the OS directly... WHMCS would communicate with CPanel or Plesk or Directadmin and the control panels API would then issue the commands locally to setup the LVE lmits based on plan selection etc.


It is not that a CloudLinux API needs to be developed, you are thinking about this wrong, it is that the Control Panels API needs to be expanded to allow those custom LVE configurations to be received... Once that is done then WHMCS can modify their modules to use the extra API calls...

So the first step is contacting your control panel company and getting them to improve their API, the second step is getting in contact with WHMCS once that API updates have been done and ask them to update their module for your control panel.
