This update needs to be applied to your template if it was purchased before the release of WHMCS V7.9 (x x 2019). if you purchased your template after the launch of WHMCS V7.9 you do not need to apply this update as it will already be apart of the latest version.


1. Update WHMCS

Firstly you should update WHMCS to V7.9 following WHMCS's documentation. You can also Order our WHMCS upgrade service

How to update to support WHMCS V7.8

3. Upload the files

We can also apply the following updates for you. Order template update

Ensure that your FTP client does not replace directories and instead adds/overrides the new files within the existing directory. We recommend FileZilla which is free and will work correctly out of the box.

Download update files

The files within this ZIP are unlikely to have been modified by most users. However, if you have made vast customisations to your template files we recommend checking the files within the ZIP and re-applying your customisations to these files manually. Else you can refer to the WHMCS V7.9 template changes GitHub to see the exact edits to make to your modified files.

1) Make a full backup of your WHMCS files & database for safety

2) Download the update files by clicking on the "Download update files" button above

3) Extract the ZIP file to your desktop

4) Rename the /upload/templates/your_active_template/ to the name of your active Zomex template you'd updating (e.g stellar, universe, eco-net etc)

5) Upload the contents of the upload directory to:

/whmcs_path/


4. Apply manual file edits

Now that the main files have been updated there are a few manual edits to make. These edits are made manually because there is a higher chance that these files may have been customised.

Open: /whmcs_path/templates/your_active_template/footer.tpl (if you're using Glaze, Mono or Stellar WHMCS Template it will instead be found in includes/hook-footer.tpl)

Find the following code:
