CentOS 7 Problems / Jailkit appears to be broken!
« on: May 25, 2021, 05:39:58 PM »
My server is up and running, running very well I may add. But I do have an issue with jailkit.

I have a user that needs shell access to run a Drupal site,  but he wants to use Composer.

I gave his account shell access through the Jailkit, and after setting up ssh keys, he is able to login with no issues.
The problem is that he cannot access many things, like nano gives the error: "Error opening terminal: unknown", and nano is listed in /home/jail/bobby/bin.

How can this be fixed properly?

CentOS 7 Problems / /home/<user> permissions
« on: May 03, 2021, 10:03:45 AM »
I recently moved my server from one region to another within my hosting provider and I noticed that I have one user  directory (/home/<user>) that has permissions set to 755 all of the others have permissions of 711, /home/jail is also set to 755.

Which should they be set at, 755 or 711?

Greetings, I hope I can get the attention of CentOS Webpanel people here!

I have found CWP7 to be a great product but I have found Roundcube to be underwhelming at best. It looks nice and all, but no Calendar, no Tasks, no Contact, Calendar & Task syncing. Even paying for additional plugins only gives you a Calendar with RoundCube.

I motion to officially request CWP7 to implement either as an option or direct replacement of Roundcube with SOGo

it offers all of the above and is open source and free.

Installation wiki:

I would like to post a quick note on migrating cPanel accounts to CWP7 and the occasional error "There is an error, please check that the account no longer exists".

This issue is related to the user account character length in cPanel vs. CWP7. Here is a scenario let's say you have three accounts on a cPanel server;

cPanel account name: mydomain for
cPanel account name: mydomainnet  for
cPanel account name: mydomainorg  for

When you go and import the first account, mydomain it will import just fine. But if you try to import any of the other two accounts they will fail at the account creation with the error "There is an error, please check that the account no longer exists"

The reason is because CWP7 has a character limit of 8 for the user name, the system tries to truncate the characters after the first 8, but if the account already exists it will fail. So trying to import mydomainnet, it will truncate "net" but "mydomain" already exists.

The workaround is to change the user account name in cPanel, if you do not have access to this feature, you may ask your hosting provider to do so.  The drawback is that doing so will also edit the prefix for any database. So the three steps are:

  • Change user name in cPanel to only 8 characters
  • Note the new database prefix and fix any sites that use that database, for example, if you have a WordPress site, edit the wp-config.php file to reflect the new database name.
  • Once site is back up and running, export/transfer site to CWP server.
  • Import cpanel account as normal.

SSL / CWPSRV SSL not working - Missing /etc/letsencrypt?
« on: April 22, 2021, 04:37:28 AM »
I have setup my server and it was all working perfectly, then all of the sudden, my hostname ssl stopped working. The rest of the domains work just fine. only  port 2087 and port 2031 revert to the self signed certificates. Now, it was working, then yesterday it just stopped. The wierd part is that /etc/letsencrypt directory is missing altogether?

See for yourself

Any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated..

Installation / CentOS Web Panel is a disaster!!!!!!!!!

When I first found this site, I was so excited, after being a long term cPanel user, I thought  what a great idea! But the execution of this software is horrible. I have spent three days trying to set this up, even paid $10.00 for CWP Pro, server still has not been updated 36 hours later.

Setting up basic SSL on CWP services is a no go, btu hey, I can buy support! Why would I spend 20.00, 30.00, 40.00 for support on something that does not even install and setup correctly to begin with?

A cPanel license is $20 per month for a VPS, and it works!

Get the product working for free, ask for donations instead. Once the product is functional, then add features for a fee.

Wasted three days and $10.00!

I am adding this question here since this seems to be a CWP7 specific issue, this was originally posted here:'t-install-let's-encrypt-ssl-on-admin-for-cwp7-need-assistance/

've been attempting to install a Let's Encrypt certificate for the admin panel for CWP7 and here's the steps I've followed:

First I attempted to follow this guide:

(Including the YouTube video)

It appears that a few file names might be wrong, because the video wants the file /usr/local/apache/conf.d/vhosts-hostname.conf edited, but in the Video, it's showing the edit of /usr/local/apache/conf.d/vhosts.conf through the admin page.

So as a test I setup my admin virtual host through the admin page (i.e. vhosts.conf) per the video with proper entries/IP and then I installed the Let's Encrypt Cert, followed by checking my admin panel server page for SSL and that appeared functional on port 443.   The next stage was to add the ability to use the cert on port 2031.

The guide indicates to make changes to: /usr/local/cwpsrv/conf.d/cwp-ssl.conf

The file cwp-ssl.conf didn't exist, so I created the file with the proper entries and then attempted to restart CWP, that lead this error:

Redirecting to /bin/systemctl restart  cwpsrv.service
Job for cwpsrv.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status cwpsrv.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

After searching, making adjustments based on other attempts discovered online and so forth, it appeared this wasn't going work and then I noticed ALL the guides and videos I've been reading/viewing were related to CWP (v6) and not CWP7 - does anyone have a guide and/or advice on setting up the admin page (port 2031) using the Let's Encrypt certs.

FWIW, it seems that any changes made to cwp-ssl.conf lead to a restart error.

Has anyone
