How To Use Liquid Web Private Cloud with WHMCS

Pre-Flight Check
  • These instructions are intended for installing the Liquid Web Private Cloud (Parent) module for WHMCS.
  • I’ll be working from a Liquid Web cPanel/WHM CentOS 6.5 server, and I’ll be logged into my cPanel account with WHMCS already installed.
  • I’ll also be logged into an SSH (command line) session as root.
Download the Module

First, you’ll want to download the module from ModulesGarden.

Upload the Module to Your Server

Next, use cPanel File Manager or another means of uploading (e.g. FTP, SFTP, SCP), to upload the file to your server. In this case, the file I’ve downloaded is liquid_web_private_parent_1.0.0.zip. Upload the file to the root directory of your WHMCS install. The directory structure should look something like:

/home/$user/public_html/

…where $user is the cPanel username where you’ve setup WHMCS.

Unzip and Pre-Configure the Module

Via your SSH terminal, as root, change directory to the location of WHMCS:

cd /home/$user/public_html/$WHMCS_location/

…where $user is the cPanel username where you’ve setup WHMCS and $WHMCS_location is the root directory for WHMCS.

Unzip the plugin, which in this example is named liquid_web_private_parent_1.0.0.zip:

unzip liquid_web_private_parent_1.0.0.zip

Correct the permissions for the uploaded module:

chown -R $user:$user /home/$user/public_html/$WHMCS_location/

…where $user is the cPanel username where you’ve setup WHMCS and $WHMCS_location is the root directory for WHMCS.

Congratulations! Liquid Web Private Cloud should be ready for use with WHMCS!
