Operating System

This configurable option allows clients to select an OS when they order SolusVM 2 product in WHMCS.

  1. Login to your WHMCS administrator web interface.
  2. Open System Settings > Configurable Options.
  3. Click Create a New Group or select an existing group.


    We recommend keeping configurable option group for OS selection separated from other groups.

  4. Give your group a name, select the product (the one you created earlier) to assign to the group, and then click Save Changes.

  5. Click Add New Configurable Option. You will open a new browser window where you will specify the option settings.

  6. Give your option a name Operating System and select the option type Dropdown.
  7. In the Add Option field, specify the option value following the pattern: OS_ID|OS_Name and then click Save Changes. In the mentioned pattern:

    • OS_ID is the actual ID of an OS image on the SolusVM 2 management server. To see OS_ID, go to SolusVM 2 (the admin area) > Images > Operating Systems and locate the IDs of the operating systems you want to add as a configurable option.
    • OS_Name is the OS name to be displayed in WHMCS.

    In our example, we are adding CentOS 8 (OS_ID 2) and Ubuntu 20.04 (OS_ID 7) as a configurable option.

  8. Repeat the previous step as many times as many operating systems you want to offer. Once finished, click Close Window

Now, when customers choose your product, they will have a choice of operating systems for SolusVM 2 servers.
