Server Port Overrides

From WHMCS Documentation

Many server modules allow you to customise the port number that is used for connections via the server configuration. This is useful for situations where you customise the port a service is operating on.

The Port Field

If a module supports it, a Port field will appear when configuring a server. If you do not see this field, the module you are using does not support port customisation.


Check Override with Custom Port for the existing port number and then customise the port value. Unchecking the box will reset the value to the default for the server. See the table below for a list of supported modules that use this option:

Use in Development

To add support for port customisation to your server or provisioning modules, define the defaults within the MetaData function.

The following example provides a custom module with a default port of 80 and an SSL port of 443:

function template_MetaData()
    return array(
        'DisplayName' => 'Server Module Display Name',
        'DefaultNonSSLPort' => '80',
        'DefaultSSLPort' => '443',

function template_CreateAccount($params)
    $serverPort = $params['serverport'];
