Examples 


 cPanel or Webmail Session URL
https://hostname.example.com:2083/cpsess##########/execute/CacheBuster/update

Note:

This example calls the UAPI function via a cPanel session. For more information, read our Guide to UAPI documentation. 

 LiveAPI PHP Class
$cpanel = new CPANEL(); // Connect to cPanel - only do this once.
 
// Generate a new CacheBuster ID and return it.
$whoyagonnacall = $cpanel->uapi(
    'CacheBuster', 'update'
);

Note:

For more information, read our Guide to the LiveAPI System.
