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 the root user.
  2. Run the /scripts/locale_export --locale=de_ch command to export the locale.
  3. Distribute the /var/cpanel/locale/export/de_ch.xlf file to your target server or servers.
  • This command creates the /var/cpanel/locale/export/de_ch.xlf file.
  • To view more options that allow you to export the locale, run the /scripts/locale_export command with the --help flag.

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.xlf location on the trg.example.com server.

On the target server

  1. Log in to the server from the command line as the root user.
  2. Run the /scripts/locale_import --locale=de_ch command to import the locale.
  • To view more options that allow you to import the locale, run the /scripts/locale_import command with the --help flag.

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 Accounts documentation.

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