Changelog 4.6.0

By April 6, 2021April 7th, 2021No Comments

ACTION REQUIRED:

As of Ubersmith 4.6.0, the database software deployed with Ubersmith will be updated to MySQL 5.7. Prior to upgrading Ubersmith, ensure that a backup of your Ubersmith database has been taken in the event there are issues upgrading to the newer database version.

IMPORTANT

Please note that the “Provision cPanel Account” order module has been deprecated and will be removed in 4.7.0, as all of the functionality provided by this order module is now available within the “Control Panel Account Manager” service module, which should be used going forward.
