Star TheHostingTool v1.2.6
Posted by: Kevin - 04-01-2013, 04:28 PM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (7)

This is no joke! It's a security patch, bug fix, and feature release. What's changed?

  • User IDs are now properly logged
  • The PEAR mail library is now fully compatible with PHP 5.4 (used to send SMTP mail)
  • Multiple forums are now properly displayed on the P2H admin page
  • Fixed issues where the save option would not be the default when editing a package and server. In multiple server environments, this might cause you to accidentally change the server of a package without even realizing it. Nasty.
  • SMF 2 forums are now supported
  • The Change Client Password operation is now functional again
  • Addressed a possible CSRF attack vector on the mass email page
  • Improved reliability of the mass email function (might have addressed the blank mass email problem, not certain)
  • Real support for decimal package prices/invoices
  • Resolved bugs relating to invoice management and paid package signups. It's not bulletproof but now it actually works and you will no longer be receiving CSRF errors when trying to pay with PayPal.
Enjoy! Attached is a diff between v1.2.5 and v1.2.6 to help with upgrading your custom installations manually. Don't forget to delete the install directory after upgrading or installing!

  TheHostingTool v1.2.5
Posted by: Kevin - 02-02-2013, 11:34 PM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (9)

This release includes critical CSRF security patches and you should upgrade as soon as possible. In addition to those lovely security improvements we're looking at:

  • open_basedir warnings are no longer shown
  • MySQL password validation would sometimes fail on install. No longer!
  • Support for decimal-based prices. e.g. $3.99
  • "THT Order" is now replaced with your site name on PayPal invoices.
  • PHP 5.2 is now the minimum supported version of PHP.
  • PHP 5.4 is now supported.
  • Added default navigation actions. For instance, when you click on Tickets in the client control panel navbar you'll be brought directly to the view tickets page instead of a page that asks you to choose another page.
  • Some minor, under-the-hood improvements.
Enjoy. Don't forget to delete your install directory after upgrading/installing.

Star TheHostingTool v1.2.4
Posted by: Kevin - 11-07-2012, 03:44 PM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (1)

It's been awhile. And by awhile I mean nearly 2 years. Almost 20,000 downloads later (that's roughly 27 downloads per day!) brings us to v1.2.4. In this release, I'm bringing you a little lot of everything. Lots of bug fixes and lots of new features.

This release is a summary of 13 closed issue reports and just about 100 Subversion commits. Here are the highlights...

  • HTTPS is now supported without any modification to your configuration.
  • Misc. JavaScript and UI bugs (lots of these)
  • You can now test the connectivity between your server and THT under Servers in the ACP
  • Fixed the PHP warning on the tickets page
  • Snazzy tooltips are back!
  • More server status information
  • Installer MySQL bugs
  • Now using CodeMirror for CSS and TPL editing in the Look & Feel Center
  • THT now only ships with Reloaded2 and OrangeLegacy themes
  • If your Admin CP session expires you'll be redirected back to the page that you were previously on after logging back in
  • Overhaul of P2H code
  • Confirmation dialogs for critical user actions making it more difficult to accidentally do something horrific.
  • WHM secure connection option is now on by default
  • Rewrote THT's versioning system
  • Added support for any timezone PHP can handle. Default is UTC. Change it in General Settings -> General Configuration
  • Admin Area tab is now hidden by default
  • The Look & Feel Center's NavBar editor is now working again
  • Improved automatic site URL generation in the installer
  • Step 3 fields are now checked before you can move on to step 4
  • You can now choose between 3 different "WWW Subdomain" modes of operation. More Info
  • \r\n issues in various locations. Let me know if you find more!
  • You can now customize the SMTP server port and it now also supports secure connections. Clients -> Email Configuration
  • Email confirmation. This is on by default can be toggled in General Settings -> Signup Form. More Info
  • Clients will now be automatically logged out if their account no longer exists
  • P2H cron bug fixes

Bug Notice
Before installing (this only matters on a fresh install) please go to line 109 of the following file: includes/sql/install.sql
It should look something like
Please replace that with this:

An Important Note Regarding Email Templates
There are two new email templates added in this release. Specifically "New Hosting Account + Email Confirmation" and "Awaiting Validation + Email Confirmation." These emails will be sent when email validation is enabled (and it is by default). Make sure you update these new templates to your liking and change the non-Email Confirmation versions (the old ones) appropriately. You'll want to remove the %CONFIRM% stuff from them. This is only applicable if you're upgrading and not doing a fresh install.

Can I switch from the Reworked fork of THT to this?
Not without manually accounting for each and every applicable change. Technically yes, effectively no.

If I've modified my installation can I still upgrade?
That depends. If your modifications are relatively minor you should set aside the files that you've changed (copy them elsewhere), and update as per normal. Then, you can use the attached diff file to see how and if those files changed. Apply the needed patches and then you can move your modified files back into their directory. See above Q/A for extensive modifications.

I haven't touched anything. How do I upgrade?
Simple. Back everything up (files and DB) just to be safe. Then replace/overwrite all of your existing files with the new ones. Go to the location of your THT installation and append /install/ in your browser. Follow the upgrade instructions and then delete /install/

What took so long?
Since you I asked: I'm the only developer at the moment so things only get done when I have the time to get them done. And between life and my other obligations, TheHostingTool can only get a relatively small fraction. Luckily the project is open-source so you don't technically have to wait for me, and for some, you haven't. Smile

Attached is a Subversion diff file that includes all the changes in code between v1.2.3 and now. This will help you to identify which files have changed and modify your installation appropriately and selectively.

Next up is v1.2.5 which will be a bug and security update assuming nothing goes catastrophically wrong with this one. No new features. Please let me know if v1.2.4 introduces any new bugs for you.

Enjoy! Oh, and don't forget to delete the install directory after upgrading or installing!

  Branching Custom Order Fields into 1.3
Posted by: Kevin - 09-06-2011, 09:47 PM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (2)

It's not abnormal for me to start working on a new project or feature and not fully realize the scale of the change until I've already started. There's probably a lesson to be learned somewhere in there. Blush

So, as the title of this post implies, I'll be taking Custom Order Field functionality out of 1.2.4 and will be branching it into what will soon become 1.3. What does this mean to you? 1.2.4 will become primarily a bug fix release. This will also help me to focus on what's most important for this release and bring this update to you sooner.

If you find any bugs in the Post2Host module or just any bugs besides those in the Paid module (not a priority for this release) please do the following:

  1. Check that the bug has not already been fixed or reported on our issue tracker.
  2. File the bug and provide as much information as possible
  3. Post in this topic if you feel like it
Now if you'll excuse me, I have bugs to fix. Smile

  DirectAdmin is coming back!
Posted by: Nick - 08-26-2011, 07:48 PM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (6)

Thats right! Thanks to the wonderful folks over at Decker Services, we finally have a VPS to use to support DirectAdmin for THT once again! Stay tuned for more updates here as things progress.

As always, thanks for using THT. 1.2.4 is under development, and when it comes, it is going to be the best release yet. Wink

  Custom Order Fields: Admin CP
Posted by: Kevin - 06-17-2011, 02:24 AM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (5)

As I've conveyed to you guys over the past month or so, the long-awaited custom order field functionality will be included with the next release of THT: v1.2.4. I am doing my best to make sure that you guys will love it, and to make it flexible enough for everyone. Here, I'm going to outline how this will work in the Admin Control Panel of THT.

Creating & Editing A Custom Field
    (<- click for larger)
Title: The "key" of the custom field. Should be short and sweet like: First Name or Phone #.

Description: The content you enter here will be shown in a tooltip (like this one) to the user to describe the field.

Input Type: The kind of field that will be presented. Use HTML5 options at your own risk. Regular expressions will be automatically applied for backwards compatibility.

Default Value: The value that will be placed in the field when the order form loads. You'll probably want to leave this blank, but it's here if you want it.

Regular Expression: Must be a PCRE (Perl Compatible Regular Expressions). This will be checked against what the client inputs for this custom field to verify its integrity. If the client's input matches the regex, then the input will be accepted. Check out regxlib.com for some prefab expressions.

Required: If this custom field is required, then the client must enter valid content into it. (It can't be left blank.)

You can't see this from the screenshot but you can drag and drop them into any order you like.

Package Selection
(will update with screenshot once completed)
Once you've setup your custom field information, then you should head on over to the package manager to select which packages the custom field should be active on. This opens up the possibility for more flexible scenarios. For instance, you might want additional user information (like a phone number) on your paid or larger packages.

There is already a semi-working version of this on our Subversion repository at our Google Code page, but it's by no means complete or an accurate representation of the final product. Comments, questions, and suggestions? Leave 'em here. It's 2:25 AM and back to work I go.

  Happy Holidays Everyone!
Posted by: Nick - 12-24-2010, 12:50 PM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (2)

Well it is that time of year again! We here at TheHostingTool are here to wish you a great holiday season, and a happy end to 2010. Lets go out with a bang and bring in the new decade. The end of 2010 brings some great events, such as the release of 1.2.3, and a new team member. Everyone give a warm welcome to TheBingsta as a new support team member! Don't think we are resting on our laurels though. With this holidays comes more free time and more time to work on 2.0. That's right, we are taking good use of this time to move THT v2.0 right along in development. I'm not going to ruin any surprises now, but this is going to be the best version yet, and you don't want to miss a minute of it! We have also been added, for those of you who didn't know, to the popular script installer Softaculous! Currently THT is only included in the paid version of Softaculous, but we will see what we can do to change that. Stay tuned because there is always more to come!

Have a great holiday season everyone! Cheers,

Exclamation TheHostingTool v1.2.3
Posted by: Kevin - 12-14-2010, 10:12 PM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (13)

I have to say, we're pretty impressed. THT v1.2.2 has been downloaded OVER 9000 4000 times! Think we can top that? Time to find out. Welcome to version 1.2.3.

Now, I'm not going to go into too much detail in what we've done here, for the sake of time and energy. You can check it out (Subversion pun) for yourself on Google Code.

This release patches some major security exploits. Please upgrade as soon as humanly (or inhumanly) possible. We've implemented a few very small new "features" but all the rest are bug fixes, performance enhancements, and visual improvements.

Included in this post is a Subversion .diff file that has ALL of the changes since v1.2.2 and should prove to be extremely useful if you have modified any core files since installing v1.2.2.

As always, enjoy.

PS: Those ugly painful-to-look-at colors in the Admin CP Ticket Center have been replaced. Wink

Information Upcoming Security Release
Posted by: Kevin - 12-06-2010, 09:12 PM - Forum: News & Updates - Replies (4)

Hey everybody! We've been working diligently over the past months to bring about some major security updates to TheHostingTool. This includes better protection for both you (the administrator), and your clients.

Although v1.2.3 will include an array of security fixes, we're also packing in a variety of bug fixes and polish. All these and more will be discussed in further detail in the post regarding its release.

Since this is a critical upgrade for anyone who uses TheHostingTool, you'll need to be ready and prepare to upgrade as soon as possible. Here's how to do it:

  1. Backup all of your installation's files and MySQL data. This might be a good time to just backup everything too.
  2. Write down and make a note of what files you have modified, if any. Copy these to a special folder somewhere on your HDD so that you can merge the files back in. If you do not care about the modifications you have made since installing v1.2.2 or haven't made any then you can ignore this step.
  3. That's just about all you need to do before upgrading. Just in case, make sure you're currently running v1.2.2. You can only upgrade v1.2.2 to v1.2.3. You can't go from v1.2.1 or any other version to v1.2.3.

Please note that we will not be accepting any further requests for v1.2.3 and we're hoping to release sometime between December 8-10.
