Updates / Update of CWP on CentOS6 ( has mulitple issues
« on: February 06, 2018, 11:53:12 AM »

While CWP is a solid offering for servers, the latest release has left some features unusable:

  • The need to use port 2082 for user access is fine, but the root password no longer grants access to the administrator.

Once logged in as a user:
  • It is not possible to create an FTP user
  • Softaculous no longer works

This is consistent across the three servers we run and we would appreciate knowing if these points are being addressed and what the timescale is likely to be.

Thanks for the ongoing development of CWP and we hope these things are straightforward to resolve.

Regards, Richard

Addons / Installing munin for monitoring
« on: January 12, 2018, 02:17:13 PM »
While looking for help installing Munin ( on CWP I made a few notes. I thought of sharing them here in case they're useful (plus I'll be able to find them in the future).

This applies to CWP on CentOS6; it uses YUM so it may work on CentOS7 but I can't test it.

Install munin and munin-node:

Code: [Select]
yum -y install munin munin-node
I leave all the paths as they're defaults and munin will actually work now, but it makes sense to change some settings. Edit /etc/munin/munin.conf and change [localhost] to []. Not changing this will list your server as 'localhost' and changing this in the future will cause the accumulated history to be dropped.

Start munin-node and set it to start automatically (this is different on CentOS7):

Code: [Select]
service munin-node start
chkconfig munin-node start

The easiest way to get Munin accessible is to add it as an alias. Edit /usr/local/apache/domain-redirects.conf and append the last line:

Code: [Select]
RewriteEngine On
Alias /webftp /usr/local/apache/htdocs/webftp_simple
Alias /WebFTP /usr/local/apache/htdocs/webftp_simple
Alias /webftp_simple /usr/local/apache/htdocs/webftp_simple
Alias /munin /var/www/html/munin

Restart Apache:

Code: [Select]
service httpd restart
Visit any domain with the directory /munin and you should now get the Munin page. Cron is used to update the charts every five minutes and it takes a while - about a day - for the charts to become meaningful.

Optionally, the pages can be password protected using a standard .htaccess and .htpasswd file saved in the /var/www/html/munin directory.

If you get any problems they will most likely be paths or permissions. Check /etc/munin/munin.conf for the paths, or view the log files in /var/log/munin/.
