Install cPAddons Site Software

This interface allows you to add and manage the cPAddons and vendors. CPAddons are applications that have been made to work alongside cPanel & WHM to perform functions for you users websites. Some examples of these would be bulletin boards, online shopping, and blogs

Install a cPAddon

To install a cPAddonyou will need to perform the following:

First select the "Installed" checkbox next to the cPAddon that you wish to install.
To force all of your installed cPAddons to update, select the "Force Refresh of All cPAddon Sources" checkbox. This option is useful if you believe that your cPAddons are corrupt.
Click Update cPAddon Config. A new interface will appear.
Click Back when the installation completes to return to the Install cPAddons Site Software interface.

The system enables the cPAddons by default for feature lists in WHM’s Feature Manager interface.
Some cPAddons have low ratings because of security problems that are inherent to PHP code.

Add new Vendors

To add cPAddons to the list in this interfaceyou will need to perform the following:

Firs you will need to enter the URL that you obtained from the cPAddon vendor in the Vendor’s Information URL text box. To add several vendors at the same time, select the number of URLs that you wish to enter from the Add additional vendor URL fields menu, and then click Add additional URL fields. WHM will display the number of text fields that you requested.

Click Update Vendors. You will then be presented with a new interface.

Once the installation is complete, click Back to return to the "Install cPAddons Site Software" interface. The Add/Remove Vendors feature allows third-party developers to create and distribute their own cPAddons.

Delete a Vendor

In order to delete a vendor you will need to perform the following:

In the "Add/Remove Vendors" section of the interface, under the "Remove" column, select the checkbox for the vendor that you wish to delete.

Click "Update Vendors". The system will then present you with a new interface and a confirmation message.

You should then click "Back" to return to the "Install cPAddons Site Software" interface. You cannot remove individual cPAddons from the list of available cPAddons.

cPAddon Data After Deletion

When you remove a cPAddon vendor, WHM will also remove that vendor's cPAddons and their data.

If the cPAddon created the database, and there are no other cPAddons using it, WHM drops the database entirely. This includes any user-created tables.
If the cPAddon that you remove did not create the database, or if another cPAddon currently uses that database, WHM only drops the tables that correspond to that cPAddon. This can potentially lead to an empty database on the server.
It is recommended that you delete any other cPAddons that share a database before you delete the cPAddon that initially created the database. If you delete the cPAddon that created the database first, an empty database will remain on the server. To manually delete empty cPAddon databases go to cPanel's MySQL Databases interface found via Home >> Databases >> MySQL Databases.
