Go to start of metadata

 

Description

This function updates a branding package's CSS file.


Note:

cPanel API 2's Branding module only modifies data for the x3 theme. To customize the Paper Lantern theme, use UAPI functions. For more information, read our Guide to cPanel Interface Customization and Branding documentation.


Warning:

We strongly recommend that you use UAPI instead of cPanel API 2. However, no equivalent UAPI function exists.

 cPanel Tag System (deprecated)


Warnings:

  • In cPanel & WHM version 11.30 and later, cPanel tags are deprecated. We strongly recommend that you only use the LiveAPI system to call the cPanel APIs. Examples are only present in order to help developers move from the old cPanel tag system to our LiveAPI.
  • cPanel API 2 calls that use cPanel tags vary in code syntax and in their output.
  • For more information, read our Deprecated cPanel Tag Usage documentation.
