  1. As for the PHP versions, I wouldn't mind if the old PHP versions were removed. However, it's important to note that there are still plenty of sites and scripts which don't work properly on new PHP versions. These are often crappy, unmaintained scripts, likely with plenty of security problems, but there are still people using it. As for MySQL, I don't agree with you. MariaDB is not a drop-in replacement from MySQL. I've had problems in the past with some software refusing to run on MariaDB, because of backward version compatibility checks (e.g. only supporting versions 5.5, 5.6 and 5.7, bu
  2. InfinityFree has offered MonstaFTP as an alternative to the net2ftp file manager offered by iFastNet for a long time. MonstaFTP was chosen because it's is one of the most solid FTP file managers I could find, having a modern looking and easy to use interface with a great code editor. A month or so ago, iFastNet replaced their own installation of net2ftp with MonstaFTP. That's a decision fully made by iFastNet, and not something I have control over. However, this file manager being "crappy" and "lots of people has been asking to change [it]" is completely new to me. I have only been a
  3. A quick Google search shows that it's possible to use cPanel's CGI interface to run C++. But then your application needs to support CGI as an operating mode, which is probably not the case if your application has it's own connection manager and HTTP component. So while it might be possible to run C++ on some web hosting services (but not free hosting!), it's very limited. If you want to run your own HTTP daemon, you'll need your own server to run it. Or maybe some kind of application container hosting service.
  4. If you use your own computer for only five minutes per day, is your computer 100 times as fast compared to when you use it for 8.5 hours per day? No, of course it isn't. Computers don't get faster if you use them less. And web hosting servers are also just computers, which also don't get faster if you don't use them continuously. Similarly, there is a limit to how many requests your account can execute concurrently. If you only have a traffic spike once per day, that doesn't mean you can execute more requests at the same time. The solution is simple: either you need to reduce the num
  5. Why do you think the WM API is so poor? Or at least, why do you think a web scraper is better? Sure, the reseller panel has a few more options than the API, and the output of the API is not always very consistent. But a web scraper sounds like it would suffer from these same issues but worse. APIs are at least designed to have consistent output for programmatic access, a guarantee you don't get with a web interface. iFastNet has a habit of making major changes without any notice (before or after), which would break your client completely. As for your client itself, there are a few th
  6. This option was probably removed because the server load of extracting archives in PHP is ridiculous. FTP does not have an option to extract files "on the server". If you need to upload a zip file, the most reliable way is to use a desktop FTP client like FileZilla, extract the archive on your own computer and upload the extracted folder to your account. It may take a while (depending on your connection to the FTP servers), but it is pretty much guaranteed to work.
  7. I understand what you are saying @JayAld. There are absolutely cases where access logs are useful to have. If I need to debug a resource limit on cPanel, I generally use a combination of the resource graphs, snapshots and access logs to figure out when the limit was hit and what was happening at the time. The thing is that it's sometimes better to give people no information than limited information, as people will draw incorrect conclusions based on the incomplete data. Like people saying the CPU limit is wrong when there aren't more hits, but dozens of plugins and themes have been update
  8. Most of the resource limits on free hosting are not assigned specific numbers. There is a good reason for this. If the exact calculations and limits are explained, then abusers might try to game this and try to stress the servers as much as possible without getting suspended. This is bad for all other websites, which would be slowed or even brought down because of this. Also, keep in mind that while cPanel/CloudLinux also limit Entry Processes, CloudLinux restricts concurrent EP usage whereas VistaPanel restricts daily EP usage. CloudLinux can fairly easily take a snapshot the moment the
  9. It would be nice to be able to provide one-click-login buttons for phpMyAdmin, or interact directly with databases. Unfortunately, while the SQL hostname was one of the pieces of data which was missing, it's still pretty pointless without being able to get a list of databases of the user.
  10. As far as I know, this is a new feature in the API callbacks. After an account is created, you'll get this new webhook which tell you the SQL hostname of the account which was just created, which you can show to the user if you want. Personally, I just store the data for now and don't do anything with it. And I can't say I'm a big fan of how this webhook was implemented, but it is the way it is. Whether unrecognized data is messing up your system is of course not something iFastNet can fix for you. Input validation of webhooks is your own responsibility.
  11. Just to let you know: AdSense does send a card with a confirmation code to the address when you first cross the payout threshold. So don't lie when submitting the address details, or you will not be able to get paid. And AdSense is definitely worth it in terms of revenue. Other ad networks with good revenue likely won't do business with minors either. And since you're 17, I would suggest you just wait a few months until you turn 18 and then join AdSense.
  12. I'm happy to help. Just don't use PMs for that please. Either create a topic on here, or use the Issues section on the GitHub repository.
  13. The more I think about this, the more I think it was a bad idea to say I would be willing to sell without having a clear strategy in mind. The Blesta company makes money by selling to a large number of hosters. I don't have that big of a market to appeal to. It's a specialty product, and specialty products always are more expensive because of this. Instead, it should be compared to what it would cost to commission a similar piece of software from a professional software development company. Which I guess would be in the higher 4 figure to lower 5 figure sums. No lower 3 figures, l
  14. So, if I understand you correctly, you want me to take a look at the software and estimate it's worth, and give you an offer I believe is still reasonably fair to you? That sounds like a fair strategy (after all, I know more about the software than you). Unfortunately, I still cannot give it to you because: I don't know what is common for highly specialized software like this. I don't know what would be reasonable/possible for you. There are still many more questions to ask, like what to do for installation support (the software is NOT simple to run), updates, feature r
