The sites are working for me, but backend is not loading and it's displaying the message above.
I need to get back in, so I can take backups and then schedule an update.

I was able to get in by doing the following, but I suggest you update as soon as possible.

Goto
/usr/local/cwpsrv/htdocs
and rename
admin to admin_something
admin_disabled to admin

It's the way cwp staff will force you to upgrade.

The problem is that the upgrade is not possible without having serious issues(search the forum and you will see).

To avoid the message and restore the login page, login to your ssh shell and do as it follows:


Code: [Select]
cd /usr/local/cwpsrv/htdocs/
Code: [Select]
rm -rf admin
Code: [Select]
mv admin_disabled admin

now the login page is back, but soon it will be replaced again with the error message and you will be forced to follow the procedure each time you want the login page back, so to keep it alive, you have to issue the following command:


Code: [Select]
cd /usr/local/cwpsrv/htdocs/
Code: [Select]
chattr +a admin
now the admin folder cannot be modified or deleted even by root user and the login page will stay on line.

to unprotect the admin folder, you'll have to issue the following command:

Code: [Select]
chattr -a admin
This is a temporary solution, also if you want to keep using cwp in the future, the only option is to contact support and pay cwp staff for the upgrade.

Also check on line exploit databases like

to be sure that your version is safe.

Hi All,
Thanks for the info, I managed to get Panel back, and locked the admin folder, I will probably upgrade to lates CWP; but only after the majority of the problems I keep seeing on the forum get resolved.
To be honest I am a bit worried that such a 'Time Bomb' would be in the CWP.
It worries me as to whether any other 'bombs' are in the version I am running, or more importantly whether the latest version also has this crippling logic in it.
Would be good to get some feedback regarding this from the developers.
