DirectAdmin packages not found until user created

Post by artichoke » Wed Aug 19, 2009 5:10 pm

This might be a bug, but not a critical one. I haven't found this mentioned in the forums or FAQs, based on my searches.

So suppose we set up a new reseller in DirectAdmin. The reseller creates 10 packages. Then the reseller wants to go into Installatron's admin screen and give certain permissions to each of these packages. He sees none of the packages listed on Installatron's access control screen.

The workaround is for the reseller to create one dummy account for each package. Only then do the packages become visible within Installatron.

Tested with various recent versions of DirectAdmin.

Yes, I can confirm this on DirectAdmin. I believe it works this way due to API limitations, but I'm not 100% sure. We'll look at this for the next minor Installatron release to see if functionality can be improved.
