DigiTimber cPanel Integration

Description

DigiTimber cPanel Integration allows users to access basic cPanel functionality from within WordPress. This plugin was created initially for our own user, but decided that with the lack of any other plugins in the list, we’d toss it out there for others. Hopefully its helpful to you and your users!

Currently limited to email administration, but more is planned.
– View a list of all email accounts for all domains.
– Add a new email accounts to any domain registered in cpanel.
– Update email account passwords and quotas.
– Delete email accounts.

In time we are hoping to add many functions from within the WordPress site that users would otherwise need to log into cPanel in order to access.

FAQ

Is it secure to have my cPanel login credentials in my WordPress?

It’s as secure as your wordpress site. We store the credentials using AES-256 encryption in the WordPress database. The salt and iv are computed once on installation so each installation is unique.

Is there an undo option?

No. Unfortunately all changes made are immediately caried out on the server. Data loss may occur if you use the delete or modify options. Please ensure you have a valid backup of your data on cPanel while using any remote plugin.

Where is all the documentation?

Currently there is no documentation besides this readme. More will become available as we add additional functionality.

Do you make any other plugins?

Not at this time.

How do I contact someone for support of this plugin?

While we don’t offer any offical support for this plugin, please email plugin@digitimber.com or post to the WordPress support forum and we will attempt to assist to the best of our abilities.

Es justamente lo que estaba buscando. Dar acceso al usuario solamente al correo electrónico de su CPanel. Cómo observación, teclee incorrecto la contraseña y no me mostró mensaje de error. Me confundió y creí que el plugin no funcionaba. Les sugiero que agreguen un mensaje de error cuando las credenciales de acceso al cpanel no sean correctas o varios usuarios pensarán que su plugin no funciona. En agradecimiento traduciré su plugin al español. Muchos usuarios buscábamos una solución así en el repositorio de WordPress y no la encontrábamos, hasta hoy. ¡Gracias! ---------****-------------- It is just what I was looking for. Give the user access only to the email of their own CPanel. As a remark, I incorrectly inserted the password and it did not show me an error message. This confused me and I thought the plugin was not working. I suggest that you add an error message when the cpanel access credentials are not correct, otherwise several users will think that your plugin does not work. In gratitude I will translate your plugin into Spanish. Many users were looking for such a solution in the WordPress repository and we did not find it, until today. Thank you!
