Ahsay Backups

From WHMCS Documentation

(Redirected from Ahsay Addon Module)

Ahsay Backup Software is a backup solution for users of all sizes, that can backup virtual machines, database servers, email servers, file servers, desktops and notebooks. Ahsay is the solution of choice by a large number of service providers for reselling and providing backup services to their customers.

The module we have in WHMCS is designed to enable the offering of Ahsay backup accounts in an automated way. With support for fully automated setup and management, utilising all the options available in the Ahsay API.

This module is currently compatible with Ahsay v5.x only. The API in version 6 of the Ahsay software's is not backwards compatible, meaning that unfortunately this module cannot be used with newer releases.

Customising Username

By default the module will use the client's email address for their login to Ahsay, however there may be occasions where it's beneficial to specify a different username. This can be achieved by creating a Product Custom Field within the Ashay product called Username (select Text Box as the custom field type).

If the Username custom field has been completed under the client's Products/Services tab before the module creation is triggered, then this will be used instead of the email address.
