    Daniel,
    If you look closely at the nixt.org home page you will see this message at the top right.

    Version 2.0 will soon be released as freeware! Check back often for updates.

    The 1.0 version does look much different then the screen shot of their 2.0 offering.

    As I recall in order to get WHM to work correctly you need to change the the WHM and the script password at the same time. Also do you have all or your plans set up correctly in the nixt script?

    So far v2.0 of the script is being developed on my dedicated server
    we are awaiting a reply from 2checkout so we can confirm that
    the reoccuring billings sends us notification of a sucessful
    reoccuring billing transaction so if it does fail we know that some-
    thing is not right and we are not losing money.

    Hi,

    Does your Payment Notification system for recurring payments (the one that
    POSTs to a script) send info whenever a card is charged, or just when it is
    charged the first time?

    Thank in advance

    Sincerely,
    Elliot Svec

    and the supports reply was:

    [quote:efb5b2973a]
    Hello,
    You will receive an e-mail for every installment and it will be listed
    within the Admin Panel.

    [/quote:efb5b2973a]

    He said we will receive an e-mail but, he dosn't say if the server
    will pass back that the charge was sucessful to the script.

    If anyone knows anything about this, I would appreciate it.
    ;)

    But its not very secure. There are exploits already for it so you
    can bypass payment. But if you want options over security, its
    your choice :)

    Is there a high security risk while using phpManager? I mean it's easy to pass billing part and add new account without payment.

    Exploits

    Hi,

    I would just like to say a few words as I am surprised how much phpManager has been mentioned on these forums as I haven't been here much (Don't get much hits from this forum).

    Where someone said there are already exploits, this is an exaggeration. Where someone said its not very secure is again an exaggeration.

    Yes, I am the first to admit that there is a little hole in the 2Checkout passback script which allows someone with the knowleadge to bypass payment and we are working on fixing this, but honestly, what webhost doesn't check their accounts everyday? Surely they can tell if there is suddenly a new hosting account setup that they don't know anything about? It would just be a simple matter of deleting the account. I know that this isn't really an excuse, that is why we are working on fixing this hole asap. Just for your information though, of all the several hundred phpManager users, no one has (as far as I know of) experienced any unauthorised 2checkout signups.

    That is the only &exploit& if you can call it that, and if you want to really call that insecure (remember, not everyone uses instant account creation upon receipt of payment. Most prefer to put the pending signups in a queue for activation via a click of a button), then so be it.

    As for the 2checkout recurring passback question, 2checkout only send out a passback upon initial signup. They don't resend a passback on a recurring billing, only an email.

    Regards,

    Locutus

    I would not call someone creating an account without authorization a &little hole.& A hacker with shell access to your server can do much more damage than a hacker without. Giving them access is like doing half their job for them.

    Instead of trying to downplay the severity of the bug, a fix would be nice.

    Hi,

    Thank you for replying. I am not trying to downplay the severity of this bug. That was not intentional. As I mentioned above, we are working on making the 2checkout script more secure.

    We are also working on adding a lot more security features to the phpManager scripts such as more data encryption etc

    I do appreciate negative feedback as it allows me to improve the scripts. I just don't like over exaggeration. I mean, did one person even mention the 2checkout script? No, all they said was that the scripts are very insecure and that there are lots of exploits (or similar to that).

    Regards,

    Locutus

    phpmanager, it would be best for you to declare that you have a &hole& somewhere and that you will close the gap by [ date-when-the-hole-will-get-covered ]. That would be a simple and effective statement and would stop the criticism.

    You are to be commended for offering a cpanel (and worldpay) integrated billing script that looks good, with some nifty features, and won't cost an arm and a leg like some that are advertised elsewhere in this forum.

    I am not a user of your scripts. But streamlining/simplifying your ordering/downloading process, as Kosmo pointed out to you, may also help. I regard that constructive criticism. Perhaps so should you. ;)

    Hi,

    Thank you for your comments. I am not deliberately trying to minimise the severity :) I do understand this and, as I said, we are working on fixing it asap.

    As for our our order/download process, please read my reply to Kosmo. Unfortunately, what he doesn't understand was the fact that when he ordered the script, that was smack bang in the middle of our transition to the new forums as well as the Taysoft staff having to go to London. All users were notified of this on the forum, so whether he read this notice or not, I don't know.

    His experience was a one-off and does not stand true for any future signups. Infact, the signup procedure has advanced quite significantly since he signed up.

    I know this is constructive criticism, and I appreciate any feedback as it allows me to improve the scripts.

    Regards,

    account creation failed using whmManager from nixt.org

    Hi,

    I tried whmManager 2.0rc1 and i get this result when i use signup.php using check option for payment and i go to pending account to create account on whm :

    failure.
    Account creation failed.
    An e-mail was sent to webmaster@xxxx.com with more information.

    billing.php: No sale recorded.

    and then i got email like this :

    whmManager failed to create the Pending Account list entry 3. All monetary balances were OK - something went wrong at the WebHost Manager level.

    Here is the WHM output:

    Web Host Manager 4.8.0

    I remember getting this error the first time I tried using nixt.org (great script BTW). I think it was because I had a space in the plan name. Not sure if it was nixt or WHM that did not like the space.

    hope this helps.

    whmManager does not allow a space

    Yes, h2oski is right.
    whmManager does not allow a space on plan name.

    So anybody knows when the v2.0 of whmManager will ready to download ?

    Maybe andrew or Elliot from Nexose can answer my question ?
