Using SSH, or Command Line
While using the cPanel file manager is pretty convenient for most users, some users prefer to use a shell-based installation. Maybe you’re a power user and love using CLI, or maybe you just want to quickly copy and paste a series of commands*!
First things first, to start off you’ll want to log in to the server via SSH. You will need to be logged in as the cPanel user that owns the WHMCS install. So, you’ll need to either SSH in as that user, or assume that user role with sudo / su.
- Navigate to the directory WHMCS is installed in.
- Grab the latest version of our WHMCS plugin from GitHub.
- Extract the files.
- Place the files in their proper locations.
cd LiquidWeb-WHMCS-Plugin-master/ rsync -avH includes/ ../includes/ rsync -avH modules/ ../modules/
- That’s it! Go activate WHMCS now!
