If you enabled permalinks in the WordPress Admin, enable permalinks in the WHMCS module too.

require dirname(__FILE__).'/bridgeipfix.php';



You can now navigate to the "Help" tab in your WHMCS Bridge Settings page in WordPress and test out your new WHMCS Bridge!




Optional:

We would recommend adding the following line to your WHMCS .htaccess file, this will help avoid runaway HTTP requests using up resources. 

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^.*$ /whmcs [L,R=301] # where /whmcs is the relative path to your whmcs installation directory.
