WHMAPI1 Configure remote service IPs?


Deleted member 860359


Is there a function in WHMAPI1 (or WHMAPI0) that allows a reseller (given appropriate permissions) to add additional IPs to ips.remotedns?

We need to export this capability so that a reseller can allow their customers to create addon domains on their own nameservers, however we will not be allowing WHM access.

I've looked through the documentation, and couldn't find anything, but I might be glancing past something obvious.

Kind Regards,

Hello @Haioken,

You can manually store new IP addresses in the /etc/ips.remotedns file as a line-separated list, however there's no corresponding WHM API 1 function for this feature. I recommend submitting a feature request if you'd like to see this offered as a WHM API 1 function:

Thank you.

Looks like a feature request already exists and remains unactioned for 2 years.
I understand that this is likely a result of low interest in WHMAPI changes in general.

In light of the fact that this is unlikely to be implemented in the foreseeable future, is there any other way I can control this remotely?

Perhaps something I can extend?

I know that UAPI can have custom perl modules, which I could've used by detecting reseller permissions and ACLs for the user, however unfortunately my user's are in CloudLinux CageFS containers - which means they'll probably be unable to access the required files.
