Hot off the heels of Cron Extended v2 being released comes a pretty decent update for WHMCS Notify Extended. I’ve been working on this one for a bit, in order to fine tune things, and I’m rather proud of what’s come out of this release. It’s nowhere near a ‘main version’ release, but it’s a
With the release of Notify Extended V 1.6, today, I’m happy to announce a bit more flexibility for Nag alerts. While this may be confusing to some, it’s really not that difficult to understand. This blog post will help to understand what is going on, and the changes with these.
Today, I’m happy to announce the first major update for WHMCS Guru, of 2018. The Cron Notifications addon has received a massive update, to version 2.0 Version 2.0 integrates the WHMCS Guru framework into Cron Extended.. The WHMCS Guru framework is a framework shared across our applications and modules which allow for a much easier
It’s hard to believe that just two years ago I started down a journey to provide some of the best WHMCS services and support imaginable, and that today, I’m still here, sitting and doing the thing that I have loved doing for so very, very long. Of course, without customers, a business is nothing, so,
Greetings, I’m proud to announce the release of WHMCS Notify Extended v 1.5.1 . The primary focus of this release is to remove the Pushalot extension, however there are a number of bug fixes that have gone into this release as well. Here’s just a few: Telegram had an issue parsing some text. Misc. services
Today’s post marks a pretty sad day for me. One of my first experiments into the world of notifications (before notification modules were a thing) was Pushalot. Sadly, for the past few months, the pushalot site has been dead, and it’s just slowed everything down.
I ran across this issue today, and you may run across it yourself over time. Disabling two factor authentication in WHMCS can be tricky if you don’t actually have access to the account, device, or admin side to take care of this. Personally, I feel WHMCS should handle this better, but that’s just my own
First off, let me start by apologizing. 2017 was not the best for development as far as WHMCS Guru is concerned, and I can only apologize for that. Certain circumstances prevented updates and development from being undertaken in a timely manner, and, again, I can only apologize for this.
WHMCS has made the decision to force users to update to php 5.6 in order to receive updates in the future. While good, there are indeed WHMCS mail problems in php 5.6. To be fair, the problems aren’t WHMCS problems directly, but they COULD be avoided by not forcing users to update to a version
So, WHMCS has the ability for you to isolate the cron directory. This is a great feature, as it provides a bit of security. What if you wanted to add cron files to WHMCS though? For example, what if you really didn’t want something as a hook, but only run once in a while (say,
With the hooks and menu system available in WHMCS v6, it’s entirely possible to have your users see a completely different menu item if they’re logged in, as opposed to if they aren’t. This quick blog post will guide you through adding an item for logged in users with WHMCS. As always, if you need
In WHMCS v5, there was an area of the template where ‘service information’ was shown. I’m referring to the username, server, domain, etc. With the v6 template, this disappeared. Using this action hook, you can return the WHMCS service information display to your clients. Take a look. As always, if you have questions, please do contact
At one time, WHMCS and SSL played nice. All you had to do was add your ‘WHMCS system URL’ (in admin -> settings) to https://yourdomain.com. Unfortunately, somewhere along the line in v6, WHMCS and SSL stopped playing nice. Here’s a guide serving WHMCS 100% over SSL in v6, with no errors or redirect issues.

So, you’ve managed to get WHMCS installed and updated. You’ve been working with it for a while, but you decided hey, you don’t like the URL it’s at. Here’s how to go about changing the WHMCS URL (ie: where your clients go to your WHMCS). Some of this is basic, some, not so much
So, we covered the upgrade yesterday. Yet, far too often, we run into WHMCS upgrades gone wrong. Something is messy, or something just doesn’t work as expected, or, well, it just doesn’t work like you need. How to fix it? How to revert things? There’s a few things that can be done for WHMCS upgrades gone wrong.
Upgrading WHMCS can be kind of tricky, especially when you’re going from major release to major release (ie: 5 to 6). There’s a pretty good chance that something’s gone missing, or something’s going to break. Even worse, it’s entirely possible that there’s bugs that the WHMCS team, and their testing didn’t catch. So, what to
If you’ve been around the Windows world long enough, you know what the BSOD is. It’s nasty, it’s ugly, and even though Microsoft claims to have gotten rid of it, it still exists in a very different way. I bet you didn’t know, however, that there is such a thing as the WSOD (white screen of

Your WHMCS cron is your money maker. It’s the beast that keeps your income flowing. Invoices generate from it, cards are charged, everything is done right through here. Surprisingly, however, many don’t know when this is problematic. They don’t keep an eye on it, and don’t catch the problem until it’s far, far too late.
So, we’ve covered the basics. We’ve covered the parts of the schema and some of the day to day queries. Now, let’s take a look at some more day to day queries, operations you’ll likely want to run on a daily basis. Deletes, >s, grabbing the number of rows, even some other small laravel magic.
I’ll be honest, my inbox is always full. No, really, it can be a nightmare. I sort through it every few minutes/hours, I have some aggressive filtering going on (forum posts, system notifications from dozens of servers, etc). My mailbox is always sitting with 10-15 messages unread, it’s crazy. If you’re like me (and many
So, we’ve covered the basics. We’ve covered the parts of the schema. Now, it’s time to go through the database itself, the queries that you’ll likely use on a day to day basis. We’ll continue working on our ‘mynewaddon’ addon. This won’t really show much, but at the end of the tips and tricks guide,
Communicating with your clients through WHMCS can be tough. How many times in the past few months have you had to give this response to your clients? Be honest! We sent you an email (invoice, support response, etc), please check your spam folder if it’s not received!
If you’re following along, I covered the database basics yesterday. So, today, for today’s WHMCS Database tips and tricks entry, we’ll take a look at the database schema when working with WHMCS. This is a slight bit more complicated. If you didn’t go through the schema link from yesterday, I strongly encourage you to do so
I’ve been involved with php and MySQL based programming for quite some time. Starting with mysql_xx (now deprecated), I moved to mysqli-> due to the familiarity of things. This was a great choice, but when it came time to get serious about WHMCS development, well, it was time to learn (again). Hopefully this series will
