How to add Enhance webserver

Enhanceis a hosting control panel software that lets you run a shared or dedicated hosting platform.

The Enhance integration on Upmind allows you to provision, manage, suspend, and terminate Enhance accounts. This lets you sell Enhance web hosting.

What you will need

  • A server running Enhance. This can either be a server you run yourself, or a reseller account running the Enhance control panel.
  • An Upmind account

Generate an Access Token in Enhance

In Enhance you need to generate an Access token. This is done in your Enhance control panel under settings> Access Token.

When creating an access token, for now, you need to grant Super admin permissions. We recommend not to set an expiry date. We understand Enhance will be making more suitable granular permissions in the near future.

Once the token is created, make a note of the org-id and the access token itself.

Linking Enhance to Upmind

In Upmind you should add Enhance as a provision configuration. You can either do this

  • On the sidebar clickHost Control > Web Servers> Add New
  • On the sidebar go to Settings > Provision Configurations> Add New

You should fill it out as follows:

  1. Use a server name that describes your server to you. You may just want to use the Enhance control server name or give it a more familiar name.
  2. Under the Provision Category of Web Hosting, choose Enhance as the hosting panel type
  3. Enter your hostname, org id and access token
  4. Click Create'

That's it! Enhance is added as a web server.

Create packages

When you create hosting packages in Upmind, you can now choose Enhance as a server option. You will be asked for the package identifier. You can either use the Enhance package name (case sensitive) or use the Enhance package id.

The Package ID is seen in the URL when editing the package in Enhance under Settings> Packages

In this example the package identifier is **1**

In this example, the package id is 1

Add existing subscription

If you need to link an existing Enhance subscription with an order in Upmind, go to the order product's Manage tab and run the Get Info function; filling in the username (the Enhance customer's email address) and domain when prompted. If the order's status is "Awaiting Activation" don't forget to also press Activate on the summary tab to commence recurring billing.

Create new order for existing customer

The first time you try to create a new subscription/website for a customer that already exists in Enhance, you will likely get an error stating the customer's email already exists. To solve this, click Create Account and paste in the ID of the Enhance customer. You can get their ID by taking it from the URL when viewing the customer in your Enhance panel. When the 'Create Account' function succeeds, it will store the Enhance customer ID against the Client in Upmind so that you don't need to do this for future orders from this Upmind Client. In the example below, this customer's ID is 9ac67064-fd90-447f-ad9a-b2245e24999e.
