For cPanel & WHM version 58
(Home >> Software and Services >> Site Software)
This document describes functionality from cPanel's deprecated x3 theme. We strongly recommend that you use cPanel's current theme (Paper Lantern) instead.
The Site Software interface allows you to add, manage, upgrade, and remove cPAddons (cPanel Addons). cPAddons are software packages that add useful functions to your website. For example, cPAddons can run blogs, bulletin boards, ecommerce, guest books, and other services.
Your hosting provider selects which cPAddons are available to you. If you need an additional cPAddon for your website, contact your hosting provider.
To toggle whether the system will notify you when updates for your cPAddons are available, click here.
To inspect a cPAddon, click the name of the cPAddon. A new window will appear that displays the following information:
The interface also displays additional links to allow you to install, upgrade, and uninstall the cPAddon.
Third-party software developers published most cPAddons, not cPanel, Inc. For assistance with a cPAddon, contact your hosting provider or the software developer.
