WHMCS and Hexonet ISPAPI Registrar Module “Missing Required Attribute; X-CA-LEGALTYPE” Issue

If you’re running WHMCS and the Hexonet ISPAPI Registrar Module, you might have issues registering .ca domain names. An error will show up when you click on register, here’s a screenshot of the error.


Invalid attribute value; INVALID Contact [OWNERCONTACT] (Missing required attribute; X-CA-LEGALTYPE)]

This is due to the .ca registry requiring all registrations require a legal type designation, there’s multiple types. Commonly used types are Canadian Citizen and Corporation.

The fix is to open up the file “modules/registrars/ispapi/additionaldomainfields_sample.php” which is either in the downloadable zip file or already in your WHMCS installation. The file contains the following additions domain fields that you need to place under “WEBROOT/resources/domains/additionaldomainfields.php”

## add ispapi additional fields ##
$additionaldomainfields[“.ca”][] = array(
“Name” => “Legal Type”,

No virtualization for home or premium? Is a ploy to take more money back from the consumer to buy the "super-duper-more-expensive" version so that you can do virtualization?

MySQL and OpenSSL Replication what a mess!

Just a heads up, if you do decide to enable OpenSSL so you can do encrypted MySQL replication. There are two bugs that will affect replication and the mysqldump command. They're as follows: Bug #24148 regression tests hang with SSL enabled http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=24148 http://lists.mysql.com/commits/17286 Bug #27669 mysqldump: Got error: 2026: SSL connection error when trying to connect http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=27669 http://lists.mysql.com/commits/24329 This may cause lots of problems with MySQL and SSL Replication using OpenSSL.
