CloudLinuxAdvantage addon page

Module page contains information about the state of active features

In case the configurable options were accidentally removed, you can re-install them on the CloudLinuxAdvantage settings page.

The table shows the queue and history of requests to the servers for which the AccelerateWP status change will be applied.


Deactivating the addon will delete the table with the history of AccelerateWP activity on the servers.

ServiceWhat customer service does the zarpos refer to.
SuiteFor which product the status will be changed.
* Last status: previous status
* Current status: current service status
* Will set status: What status will be set. Depending on the selected configurable option "AccelerateWP" and the status of the users's service, the status may differ.

Delete log entry from module table

An example of sending requests to the server for selected options for the user. Each line is a report of sending a request to the server for each module that the user enabled or disabled. In case of an error, the response from the server will be displayed in the "Message" column. In this case, you need to fix the problem and manually start sending the request using the "Retry now" button.

The "PUSH" button is displayed for "MyImunify - Account Protection" for a bulk operation to enable/disable the module on services for which the "MyImunify - Account Protection" option is linked.

By default, the first sorted sub-option for the "MyImunify - Account Protection" option will be sent to all users, and if the user has previously independently changed the sub-option for "MyImunify - Account Protection" using the WHMCS interface, his choice will be saved and also added to the request.

How WHMCS communicates with end-server

The addon tracks the change in the order and services of the client.
For those client services that have the configurable options "AccelerateWP", a request is sent to the server to change the status of AccelerateWP products.

Requests are sent by cron once at the beginning of every minute. If the request fails, there will be a retry after 3 seconds.

Information about the servers to which requests were sent can be viewed on the addon page.

If an error occurs, you will be able to retry the request on the addon page.

The CloudLinuxAdvantage enters the "Allowed" status when the client service's status is set to "Active" and the configurable options "On" is selected. In other cases, the status will be set to "Default" and the feature will be turned off for user.

How to automatically open the "Upgrade/Downgrade Options" page?

Parameters can be used to determine the billing account of the user in order to display proper page. WHMCS plugin already has automatic redirect to upgrade page, there is only needed to set upgrade-url to the root of your WHMCS instance.
