Hello, I am currently setup on a VPS with 1 shared ip across all cPanel installations I create from root in my WHM, which is currently running a premium (I'm assuming probably NOC) License version (through my current web host) of softaculous with sitepad (bundle? - it has a generic unconfigured sitepad also installed), and I need to be able to do a few things. I want to be able to:
  1. Either through cPanel or otherwise whm, be able to install different development environments like node.js, ruby on rails etc for myself only, to be able to start developing on my GPS (this particular instal doesn't seem to come with the necessary installation capabilities to install these. In the area it seems like they should be, they are just not present....how can I add these?
  2. Create custom end user auto install scripts to work with either Blesta or whmcs payment modules so that my customers can pay for their chosen hosting/website packages and then run the preconfigured custom install script at the time of purchase and then be able to access their new website immediately
  3. Configure Sitepad as an alternative choice for some clients (does this also work with blesta/whmcs, ...or?)
My questions are:
  1. Do I need to run softaculous and webuzo side by side concurrently? Or do I just need to switch the currentinstal to webuzo because it has both (server side development language environments?as well as softaculous auto install scripts), or do I need to purchase a softaculous paid license key and just update from their license (my current web hosts) to my paid license key via "refresh key" or something? Or do I need to completely reinstall everything from scratch?
  2. Can I use their license (my current web hosts) and current install or how can I switch everything over to me, so that I can charge my clients, or is that even necessary (buying a new license and switching everything over to me?
  3. Is there anything I need to do, that I have not already mentioned here that perhaps I have missed or any step I am missing in order to be able to create the 3 different environment types I mentioned above?


Thanks,

I have tried to thoroughly read all your documents and demo your products to learn how to go about configuring everything, but the just the sheer number of different licensing and similar product types (like webuzo and softaculous etc) is a bit confusing...

Please note that I am a single lone freelancer here, all by myself, and not a large company by any stretch, what I am looking to create are prefabricated instances (if you will) of customized wordpress sites (one who customization per auto install script) that my client will receive from me via email or what have you to go ahead and use at their leisure after testing a prior demo, liking it, and agreeing to pay for it to keep said demo.

I realize based on the way it is setup, that the demo version and purchase version need (offered to my cliets) to be contained in 2 different custom auto install scripts, rather than being able to give my clients only one version with the ability to customize the that version before any purchases take place, whereby they could save any progress on said demo and have that demo upgraded to a paid version of the same site...so the sales process for my clients would be a bit manual, in that I'd have to offer them a demo version that would not save any of their changes, then upon successful purchase (through blesta/whmcs integration), offer them (after successful payment) the 2nd script/permanent installation, they can then keep....unless there is a way to do the first...

Thanks so much,
Halome

You can install apps like nodejs, ruby, etc using Webuzo. However Webuzo is different than cPanel. Webuzo is a single user control panel and you cannot create multiple accounts hence cannot use it for Shared hosting. Webuzo is recommended if you want it for a VPS or a dedicated server where the whole server is managed only by one user.

You can create custom script packages in both Softaculous and Webuzo. You can refer to the following guide to create custom packages :https://www.softaculous.com/docs/developers/making-custom-package/https://www.softaculous.com/docs/developers/custom-wordpress-package/

We have module for WHMCS where your users can access SitePad directly from their WHMCS client panel :http://sitepad.com/docs/developers/whmcs-sitepad-hook/http://sitepad.com/docs/developers/whmcs-quick-shortcuts/
We do not have such hooks for Blesta at the moment.

You cannot use Webuzo and cPanel or any other panel side by side. If you are currently using a control panel for shared hosting you will not be able to use Webuzo as it is a single user control panel.
You can use Softaculous with your control panel e.g. cPanel, Directadmin, Plesk, etc. However you will not be able to install system level apps like nodejs, ruby, etc. You can just install PHP, PERL scripts like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and many others.

Does this extend to a wordpress whmcs client area? For example, I create a wordpress site, install and configure the whmcs cliet area plugin for wordpress, setup your sitepad hook to work with whmcs...will the sitepad setupnow be accessible through the wordpress front end/whmcs client area?

Thank you for all your detailed replies... :D

Can I use their license (my current web hosts) and current install


...or do I need to purchase my own licenses and reinstall everything? Or, how can I switch everything over to me, so that I can charge my clients? For example, if I use their current install and just configure it with my company information, will that customize it enough where I will get paid when my clients make purchases through it, or will my hosting company get paid? I need to make sure, everything goes to me, payments, client info, etc...as they will be 100% my clients and have nothing to do with my web host...

Thank you

Unfortunately the hook is not compatible with WordPress WHMCS plugin. You can use the following guide on how to create a custom link for SitePad in your client panel :

If you already have a SitePad license you can offer it to your clients. You can create Plans and offer SitePad to users belonging to particular cPanel package :
https://sitepad.com/docs/admin/plans/

If you can PM me your server IP I can check if it has a premium license or not.
