I am interested in this plugin but looking at all the comments I am a bit concerned that there are bugs on the software. Seems like everyone is getting cannot connect or helper is not active. Also looked at your documentation and it is using login credentials with keys. That is a strange way of doing it. login credentials for api is no longer used by whmcs. but they work as they are backwards compatible.

Please see this document – https://developers.whmcs.com/api/authentication/.

I am using the 7.5 version of whmcs and will I have errors after adding the keys to the configuration file in whmcs. Whcs does not mention that anywhere. And also if those keys are there, whmcs auto update fails.

Just want to be sure before i buy.

Hello,

I understand your concerns.

This method is now outdated, it is being used as it was the only one available when client area plugin was released.

Why API keys are there for two reasons.

1. You need to whitelist the access IP or use API keys. 2. These keys are also used to authenticate extended whmcs API (WHMPress Helper).

Version 2.7 that is due in about two weeks will be using new API access credentials, and there will be no need to modify the configuration.php file.

Thanks,

When a new account is created in WHMCS or via WordPress does the account automatically sync? Or do I have to go to WCAP -> Advanced Settings -> Perform one time sync – every time a new account is created?

Hi, Account should sync on the first successful login through WCAP.

Only the first? What happens if the customer changes their information at a later time?

on every successful login, infect.

I’m running PHP 7.0. It looks like the WHMPress Helper file for PHP 7.0 is missing. I only see PHP versions 5.6 / 7.1 and 7.2 included in the WHMCS Module download.

Hi,

Helper file for 6.5 should work with PHP 7.0. The reason behind is ioncube do not offer encoding PHP 7.0.

When a user creates an account through the WHMpress “client area” they are automatically logged in, but they are not logged into wordpress. I log out and then log back in with the client account through the ‘cllient area” and the account is still not logged into WordPress. What is the proper way to get a new client account that has just created an account to be able to have the account sync with wordpress so that when they login they will be logged into both WHMCS and WordPress?

Thanks for bringing this up. Currently newely created accounts are synced on first successful login. We have added this (user creation in both WHMCS and WP when SSO is enabled) in todo list for version 3.0.
