    With this module, you will be able to offer hosting to your customers using ISPConfig 3 through HostBill. There have been a lot of people that haven't switched to HostBill because of this lack of support, but now it's here!

    This module will allow you to:
    • Create Accounts
    • Suspend Accounts
    • Unsuspend Accounts
    • Terminate Accounts
    • Update Account Information
    • Upgrade or Downgrade Packages
    • Change ISPConfig Password

    HostBill 3.2.2 or Newer
    ISPConfig 3.4.x

    I have a couple of questions:

    1. How is your module different to the one that ships with HostBill?
    2. Current ispconfig is 3.0.4 while your description says that you require version 3.4.x. I understand this is a typo...

    Last but not least, do you have any demo/documentation about the module?

    thank you

    This package won't work in a multiserver environment. Works in a single server environment. If you want to buy my copy I will sell it for 50% off.

    Let me understand... you made another hostbill module for ispconfig, multiserver-enabled or do you want to sell your copy of desanidesigns module?

    Will sell my copy of desanidesigns module. I have a multi server environment and working on something custom made for my environment.

    Sent you a PM.

    I'm running multiserver too.

    In case you need or could use programming or testing help with your development, drop me a PM. I guess if I'll have to implement the module for myself as well, then I will be a good thing to joinf forces with you and help you with yours.

    Or if you prefer to sell it when it's ready, It's an option for me too (as long as it does not take months to finish it).

    No plans on selling anything, this is just for our use. Way too much effort to try and sell/support something like that.

    What about development? If you're using ispconfig as the "panel" for hosting, you're pretty much in the same ballpark of what I would like to build.

    Can anyone of you guys please explaiin in simple letters how in the hell is this plugin (or any soap plugin) works with ispconfig3?

    I can't believe, for the love of god that there is NOT a single website that explains in clear english, like 1-, 2-, 3- on how to properly set soap access in ispconfig3.

    Could you guys help me?

    Thats quite easy:

    1) Create a remote user under System > Remote users in ispconfig.
    2) Use the username, password and URL to the remote api (http(s)://yourdomain.tld:8080/remote/) to access the remote api.

    You find a lot of examples for using the remote api in the remote api documentation in the ispconfig tar.gz file and here in the forum.

    Thanks for the quick response!

    I just did all that. Added the user and pointed the plugin from hostbill to that exact url.
    BUt it keeps telling me: Error: SOAP Error: Unable to parse URL

    The strange thing is that the default pluing that came with hostbill also said the same thing!

    Take into consideration that the hostbill web and ispconfig are on different vps.

    I think this should work, since it's called remote for something, right?

    This does not matter as soap connections are over tcp.

    This normally means that the URL you entered is invalid and can not be parsed by the php soap extension. Please post the eact url that you used.

    By the way, if you need support to get a third party commercial plugin to work, I would contact the vendor of that plugin.

    Of course I contacted the developer. I already submitted a ticket.

    this is the address of my ispconfig

    I put that exact address onto hostbill plugin and parse url error appears.

    username and password are correct.

    That looks ok and there is no 404 or similar error returned which means that the page can be reached. You should check if the php soap extension is installed on the server that runs the ispconfig controlpanel.

    apt-get install php-soap
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    php-soap is already the newest version.

    Both server and client has this.

    Does anyone recognize this menu? A while back I download a really great example of a remoting script from this Forum but forgot who originally posted it. There were a total of 3 files and it was a good example of remoting and using a one page form to create a web site and DNS. It was written for an older version of ispCOnfig and I remember having to fix some api errors because of changes but it was a great place to start me on the road to understanding how remoting worked.

    If no one recongizes this page from the contributor I will upload the files again but hate to do so without credit. There was no credit info in the files either.

    Does anyone have a clue as to why this plugin is not working on my hostbill installation?

    I'm clueless and I feel exhausted trying to get this to work.
