CSA Panel Backend & license

[EN]

We bring to the attention of customers of new update to Licensing system and Backend of CSAPanel.

What changes will add to the licensing system?

  1. The whole system was rewritten from 0 to pass all required verifications and requests in the backend to be analyzed more quickly and have no effect with updates taking license.
  2. The old system did not have any information about how many sites backend [machines] used the license key. We have seen many sites request from one license in many parts who was abused the license. Normally the old license system still going work and do not need to be registred in billing system. The Licenses old I will suspend(remove) all but I'll wait until we complete all necessary checks and protection, and of course while we leave time to do your update of your panel.

How to process the license?

Normally once you have ordered a service and is confirmed, you will receive a license code that will include downloading and recording machines, namely:

  1. Key
  2. Max Machines Allow
  3. Valid IPs
  4. Download
  5. Module / Request

Number 2 and 3, on first will be set to "Pending ..." and once you have installed on that server will update statuses, Max Machines Allow default set to 1 and Valid IPs, Your IP from machine (server).

Backend / Remote

For the reason that licensing has changed course I did update the backend where or removed some function that we consider unnecessary. In this update you must consider few important things.

  1. The Panel requires 1 update file "/includes/classes/games/games.inc.php" You can download from your Order, this update must be made because on this file we find to many errors and we do some update on import templates.
  2. You do not have and are not required to reinstall the update panel but will have to follow the steps below.
  • cd /root
  • rm -rf /usr/local/csa-panel
  • Fallow the steps from Machines-> Edit -> "Install Directions"

After the update you will see the version 0.5.1 to 3.4.0.

It is important this update?

Yes it is because it uses the old system where the license will be suspended defined and of course you will backend will be offline because the system will be stopped definitively.

In case you have any questions or feel that you are not able to do this update do not hesitate to contact me via ticket.

Aducem in atentia clientilor noul update in sistemul de licentiere cat si backend-ul CSAPanel.

Ce schimbări va adauga sistemului de licențiere?

  1. Tot sistemul a fost rescris de la 0 pentru a trece toate verificarile si requesturile cerute de backend sa fie analizate in mod mai rapid iar actualizarile sa nu aiba efect cu preluarea licentei.
  2. Sistemul cel vechi nu detinea nici o informatie legat de cate backend-uri[masini] erau folosite si nu erau nici o limita asupra acestui lucru.

Am vazut foarte multe request-uri de la o singura licenta din foarte multe parti in care era folosita abuziva licenta respectiva. In mod normal licentele cele vechi inca merg si nu necesita ca sa fie inregistreate in sistemul din clienti.

Licentele cele vechi le voi suspenda pe toate dar voi astepta pana voi finaliza toate verificarile si protectile necesare si desigur in acelasi timp voi lasa timp sa faceti update la panoul vostru.

Cum se proceseaza licenta ?

In mod normal odata ce ati comandat un serviciu si este confirmat, veti primi codul de licenta in care va include download-ul si inregistrarea masinei, mai exact :

  1. Key
  2. Max Machines Allow
  3. Valid IPs
  4. Download
  5. Module / Request

Numarul 2 si 3 la inceput va fi setat pe " Pending... " iar odata ce ati instalat pe serverul respectiv se va actualiza statusurile cele 2 cu Max Machines Allow setat default pe 1 si Valid IPs ip-ul masinei(serverului).

Backend / Remote

Din motivul in care licentierea sa schimbat desigur am facut si update la backend unde sau inlaturat cateva functi pe care le consideram inutile. La acest update trebuie sa aveti in vedere cateva lucruri foarte important.

  1. Panoul necesita update la 1 fisier unde il puteti gasi la download si va trebui sa copiati din "/includes/classes/games/games.inc.php" asta datorita templateurilor de jocuri in care sa schimbat sursa si sau reparat unele greseli de codare.
  2. Nu trebuie si nu sunteti obligati sa reinstalati panoul dar pentru update va trebui sa urmati pasi de mai jos.
  • cd /root
  • rm -rf /usr/local/csa-panel
  • copiati link-ul de la "Install Directions" si executatil in ssh, mai exact urmasi pasi de la "Install Directions"

Dupa update veti vedea versiunea de la 0.5.1 la 3.4.0.

Este important acest update ?

Da este pentru ca foloseste sistemul vechi de licentiere unde va fi suspendat definit si desigur veti avea remotele offline pentru ca sistemul va fi oprit definitv.

In caz de aveti intrebari sau considerati ca nu sunteti in masura sa faceti acest update nu ezitati sa ma contactati prin ticket unde voi incerca sa va ofer suportul necesar.
