Updates / Re: SSH Authorized Keys deleted by updates

Are you certain?
Now checked on CWPpro version:, CWP version:, CWPpro version:  and ssh worked fine.

CentOS-WebPanel GUI / Re: Clearing the log files
« on: August 12, 2020, 02:20:26 PM »
Logrotate is a standard linux message handler, that all sysadmins should know about.
CWP even provide lusers with a GUI to manage it, if command line is too scary.

[From your other post about notifications, you don't care about security, so may as well ignore system message too. :p]

Installation / Re: Installiation failed on centos 6

Sorry to sound negative but why would you even consider installing CentOS 6 now? C7 minimum with C8 a future possibility.

E-Mail / Re: How to change outgoing "Mail From" address

wizardcomputers? !!!
Client applications should use SMTP not sendmail and authenticate with their own domain email address. Sorted.

Information / Re: Automated update

We have solved this problem and it is available to you in our next version.
Good to know but no explanation of what was wrong/what was fixed - a secret?  :P

It's a CSS error:
Code: [Select]
<select class="form-control" id="userLang">
                                    <option value=""></option>
                                    <option value="ar"></option>
White font on a white background. Whilst they're at it the devs should remove all languages apart from two or three and provide the rest as language packs. At a minimum, provide a means to disable unneeded ones!
I have had a dig around style.css but any definitions I set are being overwritten probably by javascript, or some other code.
Code: [Select]
select.form-control:not([size]):not([multiple]) {
    font-size: 13px;
    color: black;
This also doesn't work:
Code: [Select]
.ibox-content {
    color: black;
My clients all understand English, so no dropdown at all would be preferred. ;)

Obvious solution is to point your CWP server to your namecheap nameservers and replicate records for the server to your namecheap domain.
You don't have proper nameservers setup anyway - single IP, unresolved nameserver domain, no glue records etc.

Shared hosting is cheap and easy.  ::)

Softaculous / Re: magento issue after installation

Front end shows up fine for me, albeit slowly.
Looks as though you have some performance tweaking to do.
This would be required regardless of the control panel that's used.

DNS / Re: Existential doubt

i have a energy, generators... all... but... all ISP dont sell any more static ip... and the question is... if possible and how... until I can locate a static ip
Hmm, not ideal! Really you need at least one static IPv4.
  • Use IPv6 and a IPv4 tunnelling provider (example:
  • Use a dynamic DNS domain mapper (ex.
  • If you have one static IPv4 from your ISP, setup a NAT environment (ex. install Proxmox on a dedicated server and have multiple VMs)
  • Look into using haproxy

Backup / Re: New Backup [Beta] problems still not fixed
« on: August 02, 2020, 06:55:22 PM »
Some people really should stick with shared hosting.  :o
Yes, there are (major) issues with the CWP backup and suggestions for improvement have already been pointed out (and ignored) by the devs. An alternative has been posted on this forum and using some thinking can be adapted to suit most environments.. even if just to supplement the CWP methods. This doesn't prevent anyone from implementing their own backup strategy and if incapable of doing so then either hire someone, research the topic or do everyone a service and keep away from dedicated/VPS.

DNS / Re: Existential doubt

You're running your server(s) from home? Not a good idea.
Your server should have a static IP, it is a prerequisite. If your provider can't handle this, then change provider.

You don't say which webserver configuration you're using.
Apache only:
With just a little bit (2 minutes) of looking around - in my case by command line but also available in the GUI.
Code: [Select]
ls /usr/local/apache/conf.d
less /usr/local/apache/conf.d/hostname.conf
 DocumentRoot /usr/local/apache/htdocs/
Just deleting the index file is not a solution; use a combination of CSF blocklists/country denials and mod security

My server's domain is ..
Falls at first hurdle: not a FQDN for a host.

Apache / Re: OwnCloud needs webDAV
« on: July 30, 2020, 05:54:15 PM »
Look forward to getting hacked - maybe a lesson will be learnt, the hard way.
Just because you think you have a solution doesn't mean it is right.

Nextcloud/Owncloud uses sabreDAV, not Apache DAV.

You donít need the WebDAV module for your Web server (i.e. Apacheís mod_webdav), as Nextcloud has a built-in WebDAV server of its own, SabreDAV. If mod_webdav is enabled you must disable it for Nextcloud. (See Apache Web server configuration for an example configuration.)

Mod Security
Disable any triggered rules - do not disable modsec.
