Server Automation Type : Select "AutoVM"
IP Address : IP address of the server where Autovm is installed.
Username : [URL address where AutoVM is installed]/api
(Defining an IP address or a different domain "name/hostname" can cause "Google Chrome Iframe Issues"!)

Using AutoVM Module
After the module installation process is complete, you are ready to create product packages. Please follow the steps below.
- Follow the path "Admin Area > Services > Hosting Management > Dedicated/VPS Packages"
- Click the "Create New Package" button.
- Fill in all the necessary information about the product package as you wish and click on the "Core" tab.
- Select your "AutoVM" server that you added before in the "Master Server" field.
- In the fields opened at the bottom, define the data about your package according to your wishes. If you want the server to be installed automatically, enable the "Automatic Setup" feature at the bottom of the page.
- After providing definitions as you see fit in other tabs, click the "Create Package" button and complete the process.
You are now ready to sell products!
When you receive an order for the package you have created, you can view and manage it in the "Orders" list of your admin area.
Important Notice On "Client Area > Order Details", If the buttons are not clicked or a white section appears or redirects to the login page, you may have defined an IP address or a different domain information in the "User Name" section of WISECP shared server settings. Google Chrome requires the same use of "hostname" to run iframe windows. After correcting this situation, delete all folders in the "web/assets" directory where AutoVM is installed and clean your browser cookies and check again.
Important Reminder The admin email address in the AutoVM panel must be the same as the master admin email address in the WISECP admin panel. Otherwise, you will encounter "The admin area could not be accessed" error.
