Enhancing Security

WHMCS includes features to help keep your data safe, and we recommend taking additional steps to secure your WHMCS installation further.

Troubleshooting the System Cron

If the system cron configuration is incorrect or it encounters problems when running, you may see problems with automation throughout WHMCS.

Move the Cron Directory

We recommend moving the crons directory to a custom private directory above your web root to prevent unauthorized web-based access.
