- Software Requirements and Prerequisites
- Notes on Installation
- Known Problems and Limitations
This document is intended for hosting service providers who want to complement cPanel & WHM-based hosting offerings by Parallels Presence Builder - a powerful and user-friendly website design tool. Presence Builder can be integrated with cPanel & WHM by means of a utility which is available at the Parallels site. The utility does the following:
- Installs a cPanel & WHM plugin which operates Presence Builder installations by means of the API.
- Adds the Presence Builder option to all existing feature lists and packages. This enables all user accounts to have access to the editor: the Presence Builder button becomes available in cPanel > Home > Software/Services group.
