WHMCS module

This guide will help you install, configure, and manage the BaseKit plugin for WHMCs.

Prerequisites & assumptions

To use this guide, you will need:

This guide makes the following assumptions:


We recommend you use any secure method you feel comfortable with to upload the plugin file to the WHMCs installation directory on your server. The following example command is to upload via SSH:

scp BaseKitWHMCsPlugin.zip whmcs-instance:/var/www/whmcs/BaseKitWHMCsPlugin.zip


Log into your WHMCs server, go to the WHMCs installation directory, and unzip the contents of the plugin file. The following example commands do this via SSH and the unzip command:

$ ssh user@whmcs-instance
$ cd /var/www/whmcs
$ unzip BaseKitWHMCsPlugin.zip

Under the WHMCs root directory you should now see modules/servers/BaseKit and modules/servers/BaseKitAddon directories


These commands require that you have the permissions to create files in the WHMCs installation directory, it is recommended that you use the credentials for the correct user rather than relying on sudo.


If you are unable to execute remote commands on your WHMCs server, you can unzip the plugin file on your computer and manually upload the resulting modules directory to the WHMCs installation directory.

Connection configuration

  1. BrandDomain, SubscriptionPackageRef, TrialPackageRef will all be supplied by the BaseKit delivery team. They need to replace the placeholders below:

  5. Account Package Ref: SubscriptionPackageRef

Product configuration

  1. Log in to the administrator area of WHMCs
  2. Navigate to System SettingsProducts/ServicesProduct Addons
  3. Click Add New Addon
  4. Give the addon package a name, choose Add-On Feature and select the BaseKitAddon module from the dropdown

  6. Enter the BaseKit add-on package ref into the AddonID field
  7. Switch to the Applicable Products tab and select the existing BaseKit packages you want to offer this add-on for


Domain registration

On ordering a BaseKit package through WHMCs a domain name must be specified with the order.

Domain registration must be enabled on WHMCs for this to appear in the ordering process.

To enable this navigate to System Settings/General Settings and click on the Domains tab. Ensure all 3 Domain Regsitration Options are checked:


Before clients can use the BaseKit plugin to purchase services, you must ensure you have at least one payment gateway enabled in System SettingsPaymentsPayment Gateways.


If you see text on the module settings page similar to $_LANG['pages']['configuration'] instead of actual sentences, you need to rebuild the language cache by:

The language cache has now been rebuilt. If the country you selected is not the one you want, you can switch back to the correct one immediately.

The BaseKit plugin for WHMCs only provides translations for English. You must either make sure that your default language is set to English in SetupGeneral SettingsLocalisation, or rename the file english.php (in the /var/www/whmcs/modules/servers/BaseKit/langs directory) to the name of your desired language (for example, turkish.php).

Connection problems

Although unlikely, SELinux or the server’s firewall may be blocking ports - contact your system administrator to check this.
