WHM_XML - A WHM XML API Wrapper for Ruby

Dependency
Status

This is a Ruby wrapper for the cPanel WHM XML-API interface. It will allow you to perform multiple functions available on your cPanel WHM server. For more information on the XML-API, see the cPanel website at twiki.cpanel.net/twiki/bin/view/AllDocumentation/AutomationIntegration/XmlApi.

Requirements

The following Ruby gems are required to be installed in order to make use this gem:

xml-simple (>= 1.0.12)

xml-simple.rubyforge.org

activesupport (>= 2.3.2)

as.rubyonrails.org

curb (>= 0.3.2)

curb.rubyforge.org

validatable (>= 1.6.7)

validatable.rubyforge.org

Usage

First off, you must have root access to a cPanel WHM server. With this gem, you can either use password or remote access key authentication. To get to the remote access key in WHM (which is likely the more secure method of connecting), go under “Cluster/Remote Access”, and click on “Setup Remote Access Key”. You can either copy the pre-generated one, or re-generate it.

Installation

You can install this gem simply by doing the following:

$ gem install whm_xml

You can also include it in a Rails project:

$ script/plugin install git://github.com/ivanoats/whm_xml_api_ruby.git

Connecting

To access the functions of the server, all you need to do is initialize a new Server class:

require 'whm'

server = Whm::Server.new(
  :username => "root",
  :remote_key => "sd00fsd2i3rj...",
  :host => "dedicated.server.com"
)

server.version
=> "11.24.2"

Currently Available Methods

As of WHM version 11.24.2, these are the methods that are available via this gem:

  • account_summary

  • change_account_password

  • change_package

  • create_account

  • generate_ssl_certificate

  • hostname

  • limit_bandwidth_usage

  • list_accounts

  • list_packages

  • suspend_account

  • terminate_account
