I’ve seen a little confusion surrounding the ability to enable/disable applications on a per user/group basis within a Domain of One’s Own environment, so I thought I’d follow up with a little tutorial:
We should already know that it’s possible to set different user groups for cPanel accounts via Hosting Packages, and then customize the cPanel features that are accessible to each user group (i.e. Hosting Package) via Feature Manager. But is it also possible to customize which installatron applications are available to each user group?
In short, this is 100% possible. Follow the steps below to read more about this:
Domain of One’s Own administrators have determined two user groups within their hosting environment: Beginner and Advanced users. All users will receive the ‘Beginner’ or ‘default’ cPanel package upon sign up, and then administrators can switch to the Advanced hosting package for one-off users as needed. Now, our administrators want to make sure that our Advanced cPanel accounts have access to more installatron apps while the Beginner cPanel Accounts only have access to, say, WordPress, Omeka, and Scalar.
How To Create Groups of Users in Installatron
Installatron > Groups > Create a New Group:
If you’ve got existing hosting packages already set up, I recommend naming these Installatron groups with corresponding titles. From there, you can assign individual cPanel usernames or entire cPanel packages to that Installatron group:
Now navigate to Installatron > Access Control and select the newly created group in the top right hand corner:
Proceed to enable/disable applications like normal. (Steps on this can be found here.) Click save.
Now, any cPanel username or cPanel package that was added to the Installatron group list will see those changes immediately:
Simple as that!
