Your installation script should use AppConfig to register plugins with the WHM interface. The /usr/local/cpanel/bin/register_appconfig script adds plugin icons to the WHM interface automatically. It also configures the plugin's ACL requirements and other plugin variables.
Do not manually save the AppConfig configuration file to the /var/cpanel/apps/ directory.
