How to distribute an edited locale to multiple servers

After you create your locale, you can customize the locale with WHM’s Locale Editor – Bulk Mode feature. (Home >> Locales >> Edit a Locale).

After you customize your locale, perform the following steps to distribute the locale to multiple servers:

Note: In the following example, Swiss High German (de_ch) is the customized locale.

On the source server:

  1. Log in to the server from the command line as therootuser.
  2. Run the/scripts/locale_export --locale=de_chcommand to export the locale.
  3. Distribute the/var/cpanel/locale/export/de_ch.xlffile to your target server or servers.
  • This command creates the/var/cpanel/locale/export/de_ch.xlffile.
  • To view more options that allow you to export the locale, run the/scripts/locale_exportcommand with the--helpflag.

For example, one method that you can use to export the file is to run the following command:

scp /var/cpanel/locale/export/de_ch.xlf root@trg.example.com:/var/cpanel/locale/export/de_ch.xlf

This command copies the locale file to the/var/cpanel/locale/export/de_ch.xlflocation on thetrg.example.comserver.

On the target server

  1. Log in to the server from the command line as therootuser.
  2. Run the/scripts/locale_import --locale=de_chcommand to import the locale.
  • To view more options that allow you to import the locale, run the/scripts/locale_importcommand with the--helpflag.

The Swiss High German (de_ch) locale is now available on the target servers.

Additional Information

There are several different approaches that you can use to distribute a locale to multiple servers. For example:

  • Set up a cron job to automate this process. For more information on this process, visit our cron jobs documentation.
  • Use FTP to distribute the locale file to your users’ servers. For more information on this process, visit our FTP Accountsdocumentation.

Warning: We strongly recommend that you do not directly edit theXMLfile. Instead, use WHM’s Locale Editor – Bulk Mode (Home >> Locales >> Edit a Locale)feature to edit the locale.
