Creating custom UCP module in 3.3.4 [solved]

Post by ViperG »

Is the tutorial still valid here? ... dules.html

I tried to create my 1st custom UCP module, didn't work, no errors in log files.

So then I tried the ACME demo ACP, followed it verbatim, also doesn't work, no errors in log files.

The tutorial says you only need 3 files, is this still true? I can't seem to get anything to show up in the module drop down list or in the extension activation / deactivation pages.

Tutorial is still valid, I missed the step (apparently its a tutorial series, you shouldn't skip) where you create composer.json file. all is good now.
