To activate and begin using the OpenSRS registrar module, follow the steps below:
- Login to your WHMCS Admin Area
- Navigate to Configuration () > System Settings > Domain Registrars or, prior to WHMCS 8.0, Setup > Products/Services > Domain Registrars.
- Locate OpenSRS in the list
- Click the Activate button
- Enter your OpenSRS API credentials
- Click Save Changes to complete the process
- OpenSRS's API is IP restricted.
- Therefore to use the OpenSRS API, you must first access the OpenSRS Reseller Web Interface using your OpenSRS username and password, and then access the “Add IPs for Script/API Access” link.
- The IP address that needs to be set up is the one that your WHMCS instance will be seen as from the world wide web.
Additional Registrar Module Files Requirement
OpenSRS requires some third party classes such as PEAR in order to work and it’s likely that the module will fail to operate entirely without these files. The files can be obtained using the following link and need to be unzipped and the contents uploaded into the /modules/registrars/opensrs/ folder.
Finally, domain pricing needs to be configured within WHMCS. Please see the Domains Management page for additional help on doing that.
Private Key Generation
To generate your private key, login to the OpenSRS Reseller Web Interface using your OpenSRS username and password and access the “Generate New Private Key” link.
Configuring your OpenSRS Reseller Account
Before using OpenSRS for domain registrations your OpenSRS reseller account should be configured and funded for use.
Please refer to “Setting your account defaults” and “Payments” (funding your account) sections in the “Reseller's Guide to Domain Name Registration and Management” available in the documentation section of our OpenSRS.com website (http://opensrs.com/resources).
The “Reseller's Guide to Domain Name Registration and Management” is a very important resource for managing and troubleshooting domain registrations, as is the Reseller Web Interface we provide you with your OpenSRS reseller account.
WHMCS allows you to setup automatic domain registration on a per extension basis enabling you to use different registrars for different TLDs to give you the flexibility to offer more extensions and always get the best value. To enable automatic registration, please refer to Configuring Automatic Registration
Automatic Domain Synchronization
The OpenSRS module supports automatic domain synchronization for syncing of expiry dates and status changes for incoming transfers. To enable this functionality, you need to ensure you have the Domain Sync Enabled in Configuration () > System Settings > General Settings > Domains or, prior to WHMCS 8.0, Setup > General Settings > Domains. Ensure you have the Domain Sync Cron configured on your system.
Blank Response or Connection Error Message
This is commonly caused by the port numbers that the OpenSRS API operates on being blocked by your server's firewall. The ports used in communication to the API are 55443 and 55000 so need to be opened for both inbound and outbound connections.
Partially Loaded Page (Blank or Lost Formatting)
The OpenSRS module requires some additional files in order to work. Please refer to the Requirements section above for more info.
Domain Already Renewed
Seeing this error when attempting to renew a domain is caused by an invalid or incorrect Expiry Date value under the client's Domains tab. Correcting this value will enable the domain to be renewed.
Order xxxxxxx is not a pending, declined or cancelled order and cannot be processed
The domain name will still be registered, but changing the "Process Immediately" setting in your OpenSRS account to "Off" will stop this error occurring.
