How to / How to backup CWP server to B2 Backblaze

How to backup CWP to B2 Backblaze

I wrote a long article/guide on how to completely backup your server (CWP, files, Mysql databases, everything), compress it, encrypt it, and then upload it to B2 Backblaze (Which is WAY Cheaper than Amazon S3)

You can read it here,

I hope you guys will enjoy the guide and find it useful. Perhaps the CWP admin team can take the guide and make a simple addon to the CWP panel do automate the process. Would be nice wouldn't it? :D

Suggestions / Use Rainloop instead of Roundcube
« on: September 12, 2016, 03:46:24 PM »
Anybody that is using Varnish cache may run into issues with Roundcube messing up.. Well have no fear! I had the same issue.

So I switched from Roundcube to Rainloop ( and works flawlessly.

After installing it, put this in your default.vcl and restart Varnish Server. It worked for me!

It's way more modern and has a better design to it than Roundcube to me.

sub vcl_recv {

if (req.url ~ "^/rainloop") {
          return (pass);
if (!(req.url ~ "rainloop")) {
unset req.http.cookie;
if (req.url ~ "rainloop") {


sub vcl_hash {
 if(req.url !~ "^/(rainloop).*$" ){
    set req.url = regsuball(req.url,"\?.*$","");

sub vcl_fetch {
        if (req.url ~ "^/rainloop") {
    return (hit_for_pass);

PHP / Use PHP 7 for the Centos Web Panel
« on: August 06, 2016, 04:22:27 PM »
Okay Igor and CWP Team.

Super glad you guys added the PHP selector option.

Now how about we get the actual CWP Panel running on php 7 as well? :)
We know it is using the PHP5 version, so why not upgrade and enjoy the sweet speed benefits of it?  ;D

PHP Selector / Add PHP 7.0.8 in PHP Selector!
« on: July 12, 2016, 10:38:53 PM »
Okay, so the newest PHP 7.1.0 (which php selector installs currently with 7.x selected) breaks a lot of WordPress sites which use older plugins. It happened today to me when moving from 7.0.1 to 7.1.0. Broke a lot of sites!

So now I had to downgrade to 5.6 because I can't go back to the latest STABLE 7.x (Which is 7.0.8 according to on this page

Please add "Latest 7.x STABLE" to the list in PHP Selector.

Thank you! I hope this gets done soon as I'm sure everyone wants to use the benefits from 7.0

Postfix / The addon mail_queue_addon does not exist
« on: July 05, 2016, 07:55:48 PM »
When I view a message/email in the mail_queue (http://IP:2082/index.php?module=mail_queue) I see the new interface in CWP, but after waiting a moment for the message to load I see it reload the CWP interface inside the frame and I see this message under "Attachements" section

"The addon mail_queue_addon does not exist"

This started after CWP updated I do believe.

So I can't view any messages in the mail queue at this time.

Apache / Need HTTP/2 support with Apache
« on: February 19, 2016, 01:50:29 PM »
As you may or may have not heard, Chrome will drop support for SPDY SSL in May. So it's best practice to go ahead and upgrade your ssl protocol to HTTP/2, sadly the apache version (2.2.27) that comes with CWP doesn't support HTTP/2 I believe. Correct me if I'm wrong.

But we need the next version of CWP to support HTTP/2 SSL.
Unless you can provide documentation below of how we can go ahead and do it ourselves. :)


New Modules / [module] Cloudflare - Simple 1-click install or uninstall
« on: January 07, 2016, 03:46:39 PM »
NOTICE: DO NOT INSTALL YET, there is an issue! Please wait for next version

This is a very fast, and easy way to one-click install Cloudflare apache module and also to remove it from the httpd.conf if you want. I'd like you to test and confirm it worked for you as it has for me.  ;D I did write this, so it's bound to have something wrong, so please look over it and see what you think.

- One-Click install or Uninstall Cloudflare from Apache
- Checks to see if Cloudflare is already installed Apache
- You will need to restart apache after installing cloudflare, do this from the CWP Dashboard.
- Restores Original Visitor's IP address to your server logs

NOTICE: DO NOT INSTALL YET, there is an issue! Please wait for next version
I just tried doing it on a new server and it REALLY messed up the apache.... :( I'm not going to go deeper in this because I think I misunderstood how this works. Basicly what you need is to install cloudflare with the then add the
LoadModule cloudflare_module  /usr/lib64/httpd/modules/
to your /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf and restart apache. I was trying to install httpd-devel which I think messes it all up bad. You can read more here about installing cloudflare (

Perhaps someone can branch this code I started and make it better or perfect.

Latest Version: 1.1


Add this line to:
<li><a href="index.php?module=cloudflare"><span class="icon16 icomoon-icon-arrow-right-3"></span>Cloudflare</a></li>

Then create a new file called "cloudflare.php" on:
with this content:
<center><h2>Cloudflare Apache Module Installer</h2><h3>Version: 1.1</h3><a href="" target="_blank"><button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Check for Update</button></a><hr></center>
$file = '/usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf';
$searchfor = 'LoadModule cloudflare_module  /usr/lib64/httpd/modules/';

// get the file contents, assuming the file to be readable (and exist)
$contents = file_get_contents($file);
// escape special characters in the query
$pattern = preg_quote($searchfor, '/');
// finalise the regular expression, matching the whole line
$pattern = "/^.*$pattern.*\$/m";
// search, and store all matching occurences in $matches
if(preg_match_all($pattern, $contents, $matches)){
   echo "<p class='text-success'>Cloudflare is installed already!</p>\n
   <form action='' method='post'>
<button type='submit' name='uninstall' class='btn btn-danger'>Uninstall Cloudflare</button>
   echo "
    <center><strong>Run these commands as root in SSH terminal</strong></center>
mkdir /usr/local/cwpsrv/htdocs/resources/admin/modules/cloudflare
cd /usr/local/cwpsrv/htdocs/resources/admin/modules/cloudflare
apxs -a -i -c mod_cloudflare.c
   Then click the green button below; then afterward go to the CWP Dashboard and Restart Apache
   <p class='text-success'>Cloudflare is not installed!</p>\n
   <form action='' method='post'>
<button type='submit' name='install' class='btn btn-success'>Install Cloudflare</button>


//Add Cloudflare module to Apache
$path_to_file = '/usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf';
$file_contents = file_get_contents($path_to_file);
$file_contents = str_replace("# LoadModule foo_module modules/","# LoadModule foo_module modules/ \nLoadModule cloudflare_module  /usr/lib64/httpd/modules/",$file_contents);
echo "<center><h4>Go to CWP Dashboard and Restart Apache!</h4></center><br><br>
<h5>Refreshing page in 5 seconds to verify Cloudflare was installed.....</h5>
<meta http-equiv='refresh' content='5' />";



//Remove Cloudflare module to Apache
$path_to_file = '/usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf';
$file_contents = file_get_contents($path_to_file);
$file_contents = str_replace("LoadModule cloudflare_module  /usr/lib64/httpd/modules/","",$file_contents);

- Detects and uses the server closest to your server's geolocation

Latest Version: 1.1a

Add this line to:

<li><a href="index.php?module=speedtest"><span class="icon16 icomoon-icon-arrow-right-3"></span>Speed Test</a></li>

Then create a new file called "speedtest.php" on:
with this content:

$command = "python /usr/local/cwpsrv/htdocs/resources/admin/modules/speedtest/ 2>&1";
$pid = popen( $command,"r");
while( !feof( $pid ) )
 echo fread($pid, 256);

Then run this command from your Terminal/SSH Window (You can copy and paste this; Do the last empty line too ;) )
mkdir /usr/local/cwpsrv/htdocs/resources/admin/modules/speedtest
cd /usr/local/cwpsrv/htdocs/resources/admin/modules/speedtest
wget -O
chmod 755
chmod +x
echo Complete!

Now just load the page Developer Menu -> Speedtest from the sidebar and you will begin the speed test.
Which will be /index.php?module=speedtest

« on: February 04, 2015, 09:18:40 PM »
Simply run this command via SSH with Root.

If you get a error 7, you need to turn on DAILY BACKUP in your CWP (/index.php?module=backups) then try again.

/usr/local/cwp/php54/bin/php -d max_execution_time=1000000 -q /usr/local/cwpsrv/htdocs/resources/admin/include/cron_backup.php

E-Mail / Email "alias" root don't work
« on: February 04, 2015, 01:58:15 AM »
When you do the *** Put a * to forward all email
it doesn't catch any email.
I've tried and it just doesn't forward the emails at all.
I had to create a mailbox and login in order to see the emails being sent because it wouldn't forward all the emails for that domain to my gmail account.

I'm running a fresh install of 0.9.7.
One of my clients said that if you use a specific alias (like it will work. But if you do * it doesn't work.
