The WHMCS Forums were launched over 12 years ago and in that time have seen a number of iterations and updates.
Today, we’re excited to announce that we're getting ready to introduce the next incarnation of the WHMCS Community and with it, a brand-new look and feel, along with a whole host of new features and functionality - starting with in-line post reactions & a new reputation structure as well as a new question & answer format for certain forum categories.
Preparations are already well underway to migrate from the current forums to our new Community powered by the Invision Community Suite. The current community is home to a wealth of knowledge and information and we’ll be migrating all existing threads and posts as well as user accounts and private messages to the new WHMCS Community to ensure that none of this is lost.
I’m personally very excited about the opportunities our new platform unlocks. Over the coming months, we’ll be rolling out a range of new features and functionality in our community, taking inspiration from the responses we received earlier in the year about how we can improve your experience.
Stay tuned for updates in the coming weeks as we move nearer to the switch over, in the meantime, here’s a sneak preview of what’s to come.
The team and I are excited to bring our new community to you in September, and I will be posting more information on the changes in future posts.
Due to an administrator username change, my mySql database username changed.
This broke both WordPress and WHMCS. In WordPress, I just had to go into wp-config.php and find where it had the old username and update it to the new one.
Is there a file in WHMCS somewhere that I need to go into and update the mySQL username? Is there anything else I need to do to fix it?
When I try to connect now, I get
Could not connect to the database
Is there a BoxBilling Migration Script available somewhere? I have a client that needs to migrate 100+ hosting customers to WHMCS and he's waiting on a confirmation that it can be done before purchasing a LifeTime license.
Can somebody please advise if such a migration script exists, if not, then what options do we have to do that?
If done manually, how does are automated payment subscriptions via Paypal that were created using BoxBilling handled? Can it be switched to WHMCS? If so, how?
We've been finding cpanel a lot faster on identical hardware, compared to Plesk, so are moving some of our larger customers over to cpanel. I'm wondering if there's a tried and true method for how to move these while keeping WHMCS happy? I know we can login to cpanel, point it at plesk, and suck the clients across - but then we have WHMCS still thinking the clients are on the Plesk server?
Is it just as simple as going into each client's package, changing the product from a Plesk product to a cpanel product, and selecting the new server?
I don't suppose someone has written down a step by step howto for this?
