Package Extensions options

If any package extensions are installed on your server or are included in the package, you will see a Package Extensions section at the bottom of the interface. Some extensions may include variables that you can edit. Any editable options or settings will appear below the extension name.

 

Note

  • Only package extensions that you chose to include in this package will appear in this section.
  • To find out more about extension options and how to change them, consult the extension's documentation.

Warning

You may not use the WHM interface to add or remove installed extensions from an existing package. If you wish to use a different set of extensions, you may either Add a Package or use API calls to Modify Package Extension Data.

 

Remove uninstalled extensions

If any of the package's extensions are not currently installed on the server, a warning message will appear. You must install the missing extensions before you can edit their values.

If you do not wish to install the missing extensions:

  2. Click Save Changes to remove the extensions from the package.
