    • Client Profile (Admin) - Products/Services, Domains, etc
      It'd be super convenient if a total was shown for the various Products/Services, Domains, and other products!

      I have a client with a TON of domains. Active, Expired, Transferred, etc... It'd be a real time saver, if those counts could be also be included within the appropriate section.  I realize that there's a total count up top, in the Products/Services box, but some of these pages and up becoming *super* long to scroll back and forth in.

    • Hi brian! 😂
      Man, I must have overlooked. Thank you! 🙂
      Apparently you should always use one "?" in that kind of URLs. Stupid from me.
      Have a very nice Christmas and the best wishes for 2019 in advance. Regards
    • The Module is not available anymore.
    • Hey! So I was sending an upcoming scheduled maintenance email to our clients and due to a server-side process limitation, the email sending process was terminated too early. It has sent the email to some clients, but not all. Is it possible somehow to re-send the email to the clients that didn't receive the email the first time around without getting too manual? Thanks WHMCS community 😎
    • Create a file named for example StrongPasswordGenerator.php in includes/hooks directory. Here's the content: <?php use WHMCS\Database\Capsule; function hook_StrongPasswordGenerator($vars) { $password = substr(str_shuffle('abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ0123456789!@#$%^&*()-=+?'), 0, $length = '10'); Capsule::table('tblhosting')->where('id', $vars['params']['serviceid'])->update(['password' => Encrypt($password)]); } add_hook('PreModuleCreate', 1, 'hook_StrongPasswordGenerator'); Before WHMCS generates the service, this script will override the default password with a stronger one. Of course I suggest you to change the function that generates the password because the one I used is not that great. I posted the script just to provide an example.
    • Will using the DirectoryIndex directive in .htaccess affect WHMCS in any way?  All the calls WHMCS tries to make seem to be directed to index.php, so there does not appear to be a problem. .htaccess DirectoryIndex main.php Is this the best way to change the default home page or is there a better way?
    • Thanks for the reply, I've never worked with an action hook. Can someone explain how to do it in this case, thanks.
    • Guys I need some help translating the text "Join our mailing list" customer sees during the purchase process into spanish language. This is a screenshot: http://captura.servidoresseguros.info/134b662b1c0a I already use an overrides file, but I was not able to find that text.      
    • In the meantime you can think of overriding the password generated by WHMCS with a better one with an action hook.
    • I am also having this issue. Has this been resolved.
    • Hi everyone, I've searched and noticed this topic has been discussed before but I'm sorry to say the new solution in WHMCS 7.5+ is still not good enough. https://whmcs.community/topic/280081-hosting-password/?tab=comments#comment-1269461 In today's world, we need to have proper Strong Passwords to maximize the security of hosting accounts, FTP, DB, Mailboxes etc. For example in Plesk and cPanel these password security matters have been taken seriously but in WHMCS still not yet. In Plesk, there are 5 levels of password strength: 1. Very Weak: These passwords are typically short and use only one type of characters (lower or upper-case characters or digits). Example: password. This security level prevents simplest password-guessing attacks. 2. Weak: These passwords are typically short and mostly use one type of characters (lower or upper-case characters or digits) with a couple of characters of a different type. Example: password12. These passwords provide basic protection from password guessing. 3. Medium: These passwords are typically short and contain characters of at least two types (lower or upper-case characters, digits, or special characters). Example: Password12. Such passwords provide reliable protection from attacks that capture passwords. 4. Strong: These passwords are at least 8 characters long and have at least one occurrence of upper and lower-case characters, digits, and special characters. Example: P@ssw0rd12. Such passwords provide strong protection from brute-force attacks. 5. Very strong: These passwords are at least 16 characters long and include multiple occurrences of upper and lower-case characters, digits, and special characters. Example: ~!my_P@$$w0rD123. Such passwords provide the best possible protection, though they are rather hard to remember. If you use Plesk (set to Strong passwords) with WHMCS (passwords, letters, numbers, special characters) you simply cannot get an account automatically created in Plesk because the WHMCS passwords are too weak. I did a test with WHMCS on my system, it creates long 14 character passwords but the mixture of upper, lower, numbers and characters is very simple and weak - no use of # or some other characters noticed. The only way o get this to work is to set Plesk to Medium passwords, and this leaves the server open to lower strength passwords which can have major consequences because we all know users are "lazy" and choose simple passwords that are easily hacked. Please please please WHMCS, improve your Auto Generated Passwords, or add a section where we can define the passwords to be used in more detail.
