Step one: Configuring the physical SolusVM server
This guide will help you configure SolusVM server, and configure a virtual machine inside that server.
Navigate to VMM Addon – WHMCS top menu -> Addons -> Virtual Machine Manager.
Inside Virtual Machine Manager, choose “Plugins” -> “Manage plugins“, in the SolusVM row, choose “Manage Hosts” –
Specify your SolusVM host physical server login details. Default ports are: 5353 for standart communication, 5656 for ssl secured port.
* If your WHMCS server has a firewall, make sure to whiltelist your SolusVM host ip address for in/out communication.
The API ID & API Key can be retrieved from your SolusVM Server: Top menu -> Configuration -> API Access
Click the “Add API User” button to get the keys, and to whitelist your WHMCS server’s IP –
The physical host is the server that holds the virtual machines (multiple machines), and not the end user’s virutal machine (this will be configured in step two below).
Step two: Adding virtual machines for your SolusVM host
First, the client’s virtual server should be properly configured inside WHMC’s Products/Services.
Please navigate to – WHMCS top menu -> Setup -> Products/Services -> Servers
Edit your server (or create a new one). Make sure that the client’s hostname is exactly the same as the node’s hostname in SolusVM, if they don’t match, Virtual machine manager will not be able to find your server. At the bottom of the screen, under the “Type” section, choose “Virtualmachine” – Leave the username & password fields empty.
Next, navigate back to Virtual Machine Manager -> Servers tab. Your virtual machine should now appear in the server’s list, but it will be in an “Unknown” state. All you need to do now, is to choose “SolusVM” plugin, and the appropriate physical host (we configured it in step one).
That’s all !
To assosiate the server to a client, just choose the server in the client’s “Products & Services” tab, and the client will be able to manage the server through his WHMCS client area.
