    There is almost no info about this plugin, and in the cPanel Pro page they ask for the server IP to activate the licence.

    Does it add any interesting features? is it deprecated? what is it for?? :confused:

    oh, BTW, I've installed that plugin and didn't found new functionality, nor even a message advising for deprecation neither licence activation required. Actually I have uninstalled the cPanel Pro plugin.

    I just wanted to make a note about the packages it installed. It is taking the annoying amount of 1 GB of disk space. Must I preserve them? Can I deleted them safely?

    cPanel Pro Plugin is no longer being used and you should be able to remove any rpms that aren't being used by another program in the list of those that it installed.

    We have case #39555 internally in regards to cleaning up the no longer used Plugins for WHM.

    If those packages aren't being used by anything else other than it, then you could remove them. If they are being used by something else, you should not.

    ok, all removed thoroughly, except for these packages, which are related to already existing others:

    Code:
    cups-libs.i386 1:1.1.22-0.rc1.9.32.el4.10
    ghostscript.i386 7.07-33.11.el4
    ghostscript-fonts.noarch 5.50-13
    xinetd.i386 2:2.3.13-4.5.el4
    VFlib2.i386 2.25.6-25
    atk-devel.i386 1.8.0-2
    pango-devel.i386 1.6.0-16.el4_8
    gtk2-devel.i386 2.4.13-24.el4
    glib2-devel.i386 2.4.7-1
    hotplug.i386 3:2004_04_01-7.10
    udev.i386 039-10.29.el4
    usbutils.i386 0.11-7.RHEL4.1
    hwdata.noarch 0.146.33.EL-17
    lvm2.i386 2.02.42-5.el4_8.4
    device-mapper.i386 1.02.28-2.el4_8.1
    

    BTW, you didn't answer the historical question? what used cPanel Pro to be intended for?

    Hi Kent,

    cPanel Pro used to contain features that were later mostly rolled out into cPanel itself:

    Boxtrapper
    Leech Protect
    Support Features
    Image Resizer

    It is no longer needed as such features are now part of cPanel without needing a special plugin to add the features to cPanel accounts.

    Thanks.
