default view of a whmcsIn this guide I will explain what WHMCS is, and guide you on the basics of how to use it. Resellers may request one WHMCS license at no additional charge via AMP at no additional charge.

What is WHMCS

If you are a reseller and are looking for a one-stop hosting solution for things such as handling Billing and Support ticket requests, WHMCS is an incredible solution.
It is compatible with the major payment gateways such as PayPal, Google Checkout, and Authorize.Net, and includes many features such as the ability to use various currencies, create invoices, and create promotions.
You can access a Live Demo of WHMCS here. You can also access the official WHMCS How-to guides here.
We will now show you how to accomplish the most common tasks in WHMCS.

How to Login to the Admin section of WHMCS:

  1. Access the website you installed WHMCS on, and add a: /admin to the end. For example if you installed WHMCS on:, you would navigate to: to access the admin login page.
    logging into whmcs
  2. Enter your username and password, then click the Login button.
  3. You will then be logged into the Admin area.

How to Add a Customer:

  1. Login to the Admin area in WHMCS.
  2. In the navigation menu, roll your mouse over Clients, then click Add New Client..
  3. On the Add New Client menu, fill in the contact information for your client.
  4. If you want an email notification sent to the customer, click the check box next to Tick this box to send a New Account Information Message .
  5. Click the Add Client button to save what you entered. You will then see summary of the profile you created.

How to Manage Domains:

  1. Login to the Admin section of WHMCS.
  2. In the navigation menu, roll your mouse over Clients tab, then click View/Search Clients.
  3. Click the name of the client, who owns the domain you want to manage.
  4. Click the Domains tab.
  5. As per the official WHMCS documentation, “You'll also see a row labelled Registrar Commands with options such as Renew, Modify WHOIS, Get EPP Code, etc...” Clicking those options allow you to make changes with their registrar.

Hello Raquel28,

The WHMCS (Web Host Manager Complete Solution)is a software application that is designed to work through the web, but in its own interface. If you were to integrate it into your website, then you would need to either simply link to it, or hire developers who can design a custom WHMCS interface for you that you can include in your website.

I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance.

I just installed WHMCS and when saving changes, I either get a blank page or a connection was reset message on the web-browser. I enabled reporting for the blank pages and this is what appears.

Fatal error: Call to a member function getUpgradeProductIds() on a non-object in /home/mrandm8/public_html/admin/configproducts.php on line 0

That particular error shows up when trying to add a product and clicking on continue (configproducts.php).

I've been reading on WHMCS support and it appears that it may be due to an older version of IonCube being used on the web server.

Please advise and thanks.

Hello Miguel,

You will want to contact our Live Support to evaluate your server's setting and see if they can assist you with your specific account.

I also having this problem as well, I've been suspecting might be the MySQL Strict Mode Causing the issue, however InMotion Team insist not to disabled it for me, even when WHMCS requirement is to have it disabled.


I found it quite ridiculous when offering WHMCS as a main features for reseller, but providing a non working one for us.

I agree completely... This was one of the main reasons for selecting InMotion and I have been unable to use the software.

InMotion Support was unable to resolve my issue and recommended I contact WHMCS directly. This is not possible, since I am a customer of InMotion and not WHMCS, so I cannot even create an account to request support. Either way, I do not have access to these server settings, so there is nothing I can do to resolve this myself. It would be pointless to contact WHMCS support.

Hello Miguel,

I apologize for the responses you received. I installed WHMCS on your account in the test folder and it did load up for me with no errors and was wondering how I could replicate the PHP error.

Hello TJ,I wish I would have posted here before contacting support! I worked with them for a few days on this and it was even escalated, with no resolution. I was basically told to contact WHMCS, which I could not since in order to contact support, you need to have purchased a license directly from them and my license was issued by InMotion. I wont go into much detail here, but you can look at my support tickets and see for yourself.

I appreciate you looking into this so quickly and willingness to test this for yourself!

Hello Joseph,

Can you provide the url to your WHMCS installation so we may take a look into it? I use WHMCS on our servers and I have never seen this error so I am intrigued and would like to try and solve the problem.

Hello Andre,

Are you sure the username you are putting in has WHM reseller access? The error is stating that the user you are putting in does not have WHM access at all.

Hello Bahram,

Please check to see if you have any of the ResellerClub Hosting modules installed, if so please disable them as there seems to be a problem between them and the core WHMCS installation that is producing this error.
