    Hi yeah.

    I am looking for a hook for the event of update for account/package, and package upgrade, for WHM.
    The closest type of hook I find is script hook, but I do not see any hook for the related events other than account creation.

    I turned to the sample CustomEventHandler to check for APIs called during the events mentioned.
    And turns out that not even EvenHandler is called (I placed a STDERR print in EvenHandler__Init() ).

    Can anyone help ?
    Thanks yeah.

    That's correct.

    1) there is not a script hook for this administrative action (package management)

    2) CustomEventHandler is only called for API1 and API2 calls; WHM's package management does not use API1 or API2 calls. It uses it's own code path.

    I can't think of a way to hook the package management functionality in WHM or the XML-API. The only think I can suggest, at this time, is to place a feature request in the Feature Request Forum.

    Best Regards,
