Updates / Re: Is it safe to update/upgrade server?
« on: March 04, 2023, 09:13:19 PM »
Code: [Select]
yum -y updateis your friend. I used to do updates manually, but now I have cron set to run them overnight and just before I wake up. If something does blow up, I can always rollback via snapshots & backups.

PakPos makes a valid point if you are new or unfamiliar with the underlying plumbing -- as the point of a graphical control panel is to do the heavy lifting in a sensible GUI-metaphor. So in that way, it's best to work within that framework. But that said, I've been admining various *nix servers since 2000, so I am pretty familiar with the basic plumbing and configuring Apache, Postfix, BIND, etc via the CLI. So I vacillate between worlds here :)

If you live on the bleeding edge, you will see blood. My tendency is to stay on the conservative side of the curve. Note that I am still using CentOS 7.9 until EOL next year. I will use the 6 mo lead up to that time to finalize testing and migrate to AlmaLinux 8, unless CWP devs surprise us and go into turbo mode -- giving us a v9-compatible gift. But I have a year on that...

Try different browsers with different rendering engines, test with Private Browsing mode.

Please use Sandeep's newer directions rather than the older wiki information:

CentOS 7 Problems / Re: PHP versiyon error
« on: March 04, 2023, 08:29:41 PM »
Where are you installing Roundcube? Under a vhost running the version of PHP (7.4) that meets the requirements? Or are you trying to update the CWP version of Roundcube?

You can disable mail services if you like with no impact on the server. That's totally fine.
But you MUST have working DNS on the server for local name resolution and services to function properly.

CentOS-WebPanel Bugs / Re: nginx does not start automatically
« on: March 04, 2023, 04:58:20 PM »
nginx is complaining about not being able to bind to the assigned IP address. check that it is correct in the main and vhost config files.

E-Mail / Re: Roundcube update not working due to php version of cwpsrv
« on: March 04, 2023, 04:55:09 PM »
Sandeep has a guide on upgrading to the 1.5.x code branch of RoundCube. I wouldn't run the 1.4.x RoundCube branch...

Look at tuning options available in the PHP FPM user config file for that account:
Code: [Select]
/opt/alt/php-fpm80/usr/etc/php-fpm.d/users/user.confI'm using nginx instead of Apache, but I did have to apply some Fast CGI buffer tuning in its configuration when I was seeing some timeouts:
Code: [Select]
        fastcgi_buffers 16 16k;
        fastcgi_buffer_size 32k;

I keep multiple web browsers around, just so I have all the different engines available for site testing:
  • Gecko (Firefox)
  • WebKit (Safari)
  • Chromium (Vivaldi)
  • And a few really exotic ones with proprietary rendering engines for edge cases!
So try in another browser, even try Private Browsing mode so you don't affect the page loading with ad blockers or privacy enhancers (tracking/cookie managers).

Installation / Re: AlmaLinux

Maybe it needn't be said, but really consider migrating whatever site requires it from PHP 5.6 to at least something more current like 7.4 or best is to move to the 8.x code branch. I had one hold out customer still running an ancient Joomla install that still required PHP 5.6. Nag, nag, nag them to upgrade to WordPress! (Their site was as out of date at the underlying code, so a complete refresh was in order anyway!)

Check the site's error log. Post it here if you don't know how to resolve the problem based on the error information.

Information / Re: Future of CWP?
« on: March 04, 2023, 04:09:28 PM »
Rocky appears to be a rocky road indeed... I will be going with AlmaLinux. (Yet with my usage I actually could make do with the free licenses RedHat provides for RHEL. But now I refuse to use any of their OS products given that they have pulled the rug out from under us with CentOS. Burn me once...)

I'm not sure why the CWP devs are so concerned about IonCube encrypting their code. At its price point, it's more trouble to try to run a hacked copy than simply pay for it. Run some libs or code in the cloud (Azure) for CWP Pro. Just get us on a maintainable & secure track  with the PHP 8.x branch!

CSF Firewall / Re: DDoS Protection script
« on: March 04, 2023, 07:35:57 AM »
You do understand that DDoS Deflate on CWP is out-of-date (note this thread is from 2014)? Sandeep characterized it as "useless" at this point. Better to go with the Cloudflare advice primarily and also do the basic CSF tuning mentioned in this thread.
