To generate a plugin installation file, perform the following steps:

  1. Enter the plugin's unique identifier in the Unique Identifier text box.
    • If the Unique Identifier unique identifier that you enter already exists, a warning message and the the Overwrite existing cPanel item checkbox will appear. Only select the Overwrite existing cPanel item checkbox if you wish to overwrite the existing plugin. To keep the existing plugin, you must enter a different Unique Identifier value.
  2. Enter the display name in the Name text box.

  3. Select the Feature Manager Support checkbox if you wish to control access to the plugin via WHM's Feature Manager interface (WHM >> Home >> Features >> Feature Manager).
  4. Select the group in which the plugin icon will appear from the Group menu. To create a new group, click the add icon ( Image Modified ). Enter the new group name in the  New Group Name  text box. 

  5. Enter a number between 1 and 99 in the Priority text box. A plugin icon with a priority of 1 appears higher than an icon with a priority of 99
  6. Enter the plugin location in the URI text box. 
  7. Click Browse to select an icon file for the plugin.

    • Icon files must use the SVG or PNG format.
    • Paper Lantern icons must be 48x48 pixels. This interface does not resize icon files. As a result, larger images may render incorrectly.

  8. Click Add item to add your new item to the New Plugin Information section of the interface. 
  9. Repeat steps 1 through 7 for all of the items that you wish to include in the plugin installation file.

  10. Enter the plugin's name in the New Plugin Information text box and click Generate to generate the new plugin installation file.

    • The plugin name can only contain lowercase letters, numbers, hyphens (-), and underscores (_).
    • New plugins cannot use the same name as an existing plugin on the server.
