How to disable the TERMINATE module command operation for some or all admin users?


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


We've had a couple of occasions where hosting accounts have been accidentally terminated using the terminate module command in WHMCS, and I want to stop this.


I can see that it's possible to enable/disable *all* modules commands ("Perform Module Command Operations") per admin role, but I want to see if I can disable *only* the terminate command.


WHMCS documentation doesn't appear to be coughing up the answer.


Thanks for your help,

sentq has a good idea here. You can do this using the PreModuleTerminate hook. The "Terminate" button will still show, but you can have it abort, if the admin is not allowed to run it.


Create a new hook file under your includes/hooks folder called something like "termperm.php". Within that file, use the following code:


if (!defined("WHMCS"))
   die("This file cannot be accessed directly");

function terminate_permission($params) {

 // Admin IDs who are allowed to use the Terminate function
 $termallow = array('1','2','3');

 if ($_SESSION['adminid'] && !in_array($_SESSION['adminid'], $termallow)) {
   $return = array("abortcmd"=>true);
   return $return;





Be sure to edit the "$termallow" array, with a list of admin ids that are allowed to use the Terminate function.


I tested this on my dev server, and it worked well for me.
