Please extract the contents of the below attached ZIP archive into the folder
of your WHMCS installation.
The configuration of the Joker.com registrar module is done by using the WHMCS admin section. For this, please login as "admin" into your WHMCS installation, and navigate to
Setup -> Products/Services -> Domain Registrars
Pick "Joker.com" from the list, "Activate" the plugin, and enter your Joker.com
Reseller's credentials - the same you are using for DMAPI.
You also may choose to use the "TestMode" for dry run on our OT&E platform, or to configure the free Joker.com nameservers as a default for new domains.
Once activated, you may always change these settings by clicking on "Configure".
Don't forget to "Save Changes" after doing so.
You will find most options for domains in section "Clients -> Domain registrations" - click on the domain name to see all domain details.
A special command there is "Sync" at the 'Registrar Commands' - this will trigger a manual sync of a domain's status and expiration date with Joker.com, in case it was modified outside of WHMCS.
This is usually also done automatically by the 'WHMCS domainsync cron' - please make sure that you added this with your WHMCS installation.
