How to install WHMCS

To install WHMCS, you must first obtain a WHMCS License. Installing WHMCS is a simple process, as long as your server meets all the system requirements.

Generally, any server running a control panel such as cPanel or Plesk will meet the requirements. If any are not met, you should be notified of this during the install process.To install WHMCS, perform the following steps:

1. Download latest version of WHMCS from WHMCS client area and extract it on your computer.

2. Double click on WHMCS folder.

3. Remove .new from the configuration file’s name.

4. With the file renamed, upload the entire WHMCS folder to your FTP server.

Note: Because the WHMCS code is encrypted, the Ioncube loaders are required for it to function. Your server may already have these installed. If it does not, you’ll be unable to proceed any further.

5. There should be an Ioncube folder in the archive you extracted. Simply upload that folder inside the WHMCS directory you just uploaded. If the Ioncube folder is not present, contact WHMCS support for the files, or contact our support department to have Ioncube set up for your entire server.

6. After all the files have been uploaded, you’re ready to begin installation. Go to the installation script here:http://www.yourdomain.com/whmcs/install/install.php
