KeyHelp® 14.4.0 – Now available with white label function

by Alexander Mahr

In the course of this week KeyHelp will be updated to the newest version 14.4.0. This update includes a number of enhancements, bug fixes and new features, of course.

With the KeyHelp white label function you will be able to give your administration panel its own branding - in a very simple way. You can change the KeyHelp product name, the design (CSS / images), and remove all references to our company. This allows you to modify KeyHelp according to your wishes and customize it to fit to your corporate design.

To give you the option to include the web mail tool Roundcube into your white label concept, you can now edit various Roundcube settings directly in KeyHelp (e.g. product name, support-URL and active plugins). These settings remain stored in an update-safe way also in case KeyHelp perform a Roundcube update in one of the upcoming KeyHelp updates.

Furthermore - in the administration area - you are now able to add custom notes to your users, which only can be seen by you as an administrator. These notes are displayed at user accounts and domains pages and can be edited freely.

Also for the user area, there are new features - so you now can protect your directories with a password to provide sensitive data only to a selected audience.

Furthermore, additional improvements regarding usability and clarity in administration and user area were added. For example, syntax highlighting for code input fields have been added and the summary tables have been redesigned in a user friendly way - partly you are able to sort the columns.

With the current release of KeyHelp - 14 bugs have been fixed. The program code and template files were improved, resulting in a more performant script execution of the administration panel.

For a complete list of changes in version 14.4.0 please have a look at

(This update will be installed automatically, as long as "Perform automatic panel updates" is enabled in your panel)

Changes in configuration files

Along with this KeyHelp update, there is also an update to the config file "/etc/apache2/keyhelp_vhosts.conf". KeyHelp creates a backup and then overwrites the original file with new settings. If you, for example, have protected this file with the "chattr" command, please transfer the following lines into the file named above:
