How to / Re: Messed up big time, need a fix
« on: May 17, 2016, 09:35:09 AM »
Well that's annoying.

After no response from my host I decided to move all the sites to my other server. I shut down this server to stop all the spam email filling the mailqueue. I've now done that so I restarted the server and incredibly I can log into to CWP now. The are 298,722 emails in the mailqueue :-)

If you are using wordpress I suggest you do a search for these files

60dir.php s151.02kb
mail.php 11.36kb
mysql.php 28.11kb
dir24.php 11.19kb

These are also a valid filenames so view the contents before delete. Most the time they get in the /images of any subdir or the /uploads

How would this world is the user has more then one website ?

I have a VPN but currently login to the terminal from anywhere. I've actually decided to move the websites to my other server and cancel that hosting. I know it was my fault but expected a lot more interest from the support staff there. Doing nothing is worse then just saying we can't help.

No, I think ssh is not running.

My host is dragging their feet on this so no it looks like I'm going to have trash the server and do re-install. Luckily I can acess simple Ftp and mysqladmin to do the exports of the sites.

How about an option to kill all emails produced from a given domain. I have 8 websites on my server but only ever send email outside the server from one domain. Just a bit extra spam protection that might save your server being banned.

I have this exact problem only on both my servers. I suspect it's an exploit of Wordpress.

Did you manage to nail it down? I've found most of it but still got 200 emails being created an hour.  I just can't track down where these are coming from now.

While trying to find and fix an exploit I've managed to really mess up my access to my server. I stopped all the services except web & mysql and for some reason I managed to reboot my VPS in that state. Now I can not log in via CWP or via terminal.

I'm left with only the main domain site working and all the other sites inaccessible. Can anyone help ? I've sent a support request in as I'm willing to pay but I've not heard anything yet.

BWT - I noticed the auto Wordpress updates where sending me false reports that my WP installations had been updated to the latest version. I noticed this as suddenly I started getting failed emails that were in fact spam being sent out from my server.

Other / Adding harddrive space
« on: November 10, 2015, 06:37:23 PM »
My server has 3 drives, when I had CWP setup I had one drive for the data and another for the backups. The 3rd drive, I don't think, was used but it does show up on CWP. I wondering now how easy it would be to expand the data drive to take advantage of the 1TB on this free drive ?

I don't have a clue really about how to do this, I wonder if this is something that CWP could do for me and if it's within the support package I have ?

Suggestions / goaccess - Fast web log analyzer

I suggest this is added to the CWP bundle - - goaccess - Fast web log analyzer and interactive viewer.

Worked fine for me ...........twice. They installed in on two servers, one VPS and on dedicated on a monthly support contract.

Yes the are things some might want that are missing from CWP but the things needed are there and other things you can add or configure. If you like cpanel pay for it but CWP is a clear alternative and will only get better.

How to / How To Parked Domains - multi domains to one domain
« on: May 01, 2015, 02:55:05 PM »
Picked this little trick up while looking to redirect some domains. You could do this in the htaccess file but if like me that doesn't work <long story> you might need this because CWP does not currently do parked domains.

For a site that has changed it's domain or has multi domains pointed to it.Lets say your main domain is MYDOMAIN.COM but you used to use one called MYOLDDOMAIN.COM. You don't want to loose the visitors who still go to the old domain name and you still own it or the domain is just another version eg.,, etc etc

Edit the vhosts file found under Apache Settings. Look for the Host section of MYOLDDOMAIN.COM and add in the line RedirectPermanent /


# vhost_start
<VirtualHost ***.***.89.41:80>
RedirectPermanent /

Information / Moving data from on account to another ?
« on: April 28, 2015, 03:29:28 PM »
I'm been really stupid here, I've made a typo in a domain name when setting up an account. I've edited the vhosts file to fix that but how do I edit the domain name in the user account - it's not editable.

Normally I would just delete the account but I've already setup 3 databases and moved 35gb of data to it. In fact I've just wasted hours trying to fix problem that turned out not to be problems associated to moving the site  :'( when it was this typo :-) I thought everything was fine because the site has other domains I used to move first then checked the DNS was working.

Information / Re: Add domain
« on: April 28, 2015, 03:04:15 PM »
So run me thougth how you do that please ?

When adding a domain it asks where you want the data put and give the edit box /public_html

Do you edit that and add to it /public_html/newsite ?

Suppose you do, just seem strange to me as I'm used to each site having their own /public_html
