E-Mail / Re: AutoSSL for mail only
« on: November 19, 2020, 04:33:18 PM »
BUMP! :)

I cant see how CWP can be a viable hosting solution if this is not possible, it must be!
What am I missing here? I'm sure someone has done it!

Just to reiterate, imagine that you have your domain on a different server but want to create a CWP account just for mail.
You cant issue a certificate because the main domain A record doesn't point there, or you cant create subdomain manually to then issue a certificate to just only as CWP wont allow the manual creation of a subdomain :(

I'm really stumped here, any advice?

Please use the SMTP relay at your 550-5.7.1 service provider instead.

Lets assume what you really mean is this:
Code: [Select]
550-5.7.1 [] The IP you're using to send mail is not authorized to
550-5.7.1 send email directly to our servers. Please use the SMTP relay at your
550-5.7.1 service provider instead.
Connection closed by foreign host.

I assume that either you haven't set up:
  • DKIM / SPF records correctly
  • rDNS PTR records
  • or you're blacklisted

You'll need to provide more information, whats the full error message? :)

There's a really good guide here:

Missing DMARC and SPF records on the domain used to send the email.

more information needed, how are you sending the emails?

Got the archived directory structure better but the split version is causing weird problems, so shelved for now (or until inspiration happens).

What problems did you face, could you describe? I understand this is super heavy on CPU which is a bit distressing but..

the CWP file manager doesn't recognise it as being able to be "descompressed"
Gets me every time..  ;D

This may not pinpoint your error, but damn it helps me with most spam issues:

Load the site on two tabs, make sure you get different sending email addresses on each tab and then test both servers.
They'll inspect the message, headers, SPF, DKIM, rDNS, blacklisting, email content, etc.. :)

PMSL at the emails - spammer! ban, ban, ban  >:(
Nah they were legit emails (sending to Amazon SES and then out to the world) hence why I rushed to cancel the backup process.. just in case!

HH:MM remains so that folks can run more than once a day, particularly during testing. Of course, doesn't affect directory sorts etc. ;)
Got it, yea me likely :)

Yeah, during a test (and later needed) restore I spotted the subdir creation. As you said, ain't major but a bit unpolished.  :-[
Maybe a v3.2 will address this - who knows?

OK, so one more thing. I have moved the tmp folder to the storage drive. It's not 'ideal' but helps reduce the load on the main drive when large accounts are zipped (main drive storage is much more expensive, and once I purchase allocated space i cant just 'downsize' it again, so i keep the main drive at about 80% capacity.
I'm a bit of an idiot and didn't separate the /home/ folder onto its own drive so that's always going to be at the back of my mind. Something for a rainy day!
I'd also mention that each account goes over its quota while the backup is running. I assume this is because (for example) 8/10GB used quickly becomes 12-16/10GB while the task is running.

On the downside, could this affect a users ability to receive mail or publish content on their site?
Might be a small flaw, albeit only for a short time. Something to ponder :)

side note but not important, a client started sending 30k emails while i was testing the backup.

Jeez my pants need changing ;D

Lemme know how you get on with V3.1 - just curiosity.

It split, that worked really well. :) I don't know what. was expecting, maybe a bit of fear there whenever running as new script, but it worked great!

I assumed (after seeing a folder named yyyymmddhhmm) that it would create loads of folders but no, thats just the time that the backup was initiated. There is just one folder with several /home/ accounts inside!

Things to note:
YES, the backup exclusions work no matter what directory (really impressed)  ;D

inside the backup created folder:
was a file for the home directory.

Unzipping this created a series of folders (inside the above mentioned path):
not an issue, reeeeally not an issue.. but if you were wanting this to be super perfect, maybe just trim it down to /home_dir/ or something similar?

Epic job my man, epic job!

Major revamp, with provision for extending to system files.
Use in a cron task as normal, or add a split parameter if you prefer to keep individual parts.

Just started a test, OMG ITS SPLITTING IT!!!  ;D

One thing I've noticed though:

Any way we can remove the HH:MM from the date string for efficiency? :)

Which implies *backups/  could/should be added in your use case. Generally, backup exclusions/inclusions is an iterative process until a compromise is made between protection and speed/space.
I'll test and let you know, thanks! :)

That being said, thanks for stirring me into the revamp - much easier to manage my multiple encrypted nextcloud remote backups now. :) 8)
I know the feeling, this is like a theme I built a year ago. People come back and ask for edits i'd never imagined, pushing it to be better each time.

Now, back to looking at a PHP e-commerce migration script, plus a newly created VPN. :'(
Epic, now that is something I can do! All this linux stuff is a little bit beyond me, but i'm learning. It's a steep road ;D

  cp /root/backup_exclude.conf /home/$i
This looks amazing, thank you! I will do this once I get my backup_exclude.conf correct :)

Speaking of which, here it is:
Code: [Select]
#listing directories to exclude from custom backup:
The last three entries are in the public_html/wp-content/ folder. This is relevant for all /wp-content/ folders, not just in public_html (imagine a subdomain or addon domain, for example).
Can we wildcard these, or is it already done?

For example, does mentioning:
Code: [Select]
wpvividbackups/also include:
Code: [Select]

or do these have to be set individually?
Would be great to wildcard the folder name, let me know if its possible!

*** I'll reiterate, from the opening post. This custom backup is used to supplement, not replace the CWP provided backup routines. It doesn't (yet?) cater for IP allocation, subdomains, email forwarders, packages and other functions. It is intended as a "failsafe" backup that can be used to restore most functionality of a user website onto any control panel, not just CWP. Additionally, it correctly uses retention terminology, (currently) unlike the CWP one. ;) ***

Agreed, and in time I will uncheck the options this backup covers but leave on the CWP backup for options it doesnt (like the ones you listed) but it is a VERY good start.

On another note, I hope you don't mind my suggestions. Just trying to give useful input/feedback, what's been achieved already is immense  :D

Super excited, nice one!
Saving this for later today, have the original CWP backups running atm. I have to test a solution before moving over to it permanently, live clients with real websites.. etc :)
