cPanel Plugin File Generator

This interface allows the root user to generate a plugin installation file for the cPanel interface's Paper Lantern theme.

The installation file automates the plugins install process and allows you to have the plugin be installed with your desired configuration.

Within the cPanel interface, items function as links to particular interfaces "File Manager", each item must reside in a group for example "Files" or "Databases". 

Generate a Plugin Fire

In order to generate a plugin installation file you will need to perform the following;

First you will need to enter the plugin's identifier in the Unique Identifier text box.

If the Unique Identifier that you enter already exists, a warning message will appear.
Only select the Overwrite existing cPanel item checkbox if you wish to overwrite the existing plugin. To keep the existing plugin, you must enter a different Unique Identifier value.

Enter the display name in the Name text box.
Select the group in which the plugin icon will appear from the Group menu. To create a new group, click the add icon (). Enter the new group name in the New Group Name text box.
Enter a number between 1 and 99 in the Priority text box. A plugin icon with a priority of 1 appears higher than an icon with a priority of 99.
Enter the plugin location in the URI text box.
Click Browse to select an icon file for the plugin.

Icon files must use the SVG or PNG format.
Paper Lantern icons must be 48x48 pixels. This interface does not resize icon files. As a result, larger images may render incorrectly.

Click Add item to add your new item to the New Plugin Information section of the interface.
Repeat steps 1 through 7 for all of the items that you wish to include in the plugin installation file.
Enter the plugin's name in the New Plugin Information text box and click Generate to generate the new plugin installation file.

The plugin name may only contain lowercase letters, numbers, hyphens (-), and underscores (_).
New plugins cannot use the same name as an existing plugin on the server.

You can download the new plugin installation file from the banner that appears at the top of the interface. This banner will disappear when you start to create a new plugin or navigate away from the interface
