Installation / Is my server worthy?
« on: April 27, 2020, 09:27:03 PM »
I'm installing a second server at a new location and wondered if I could ask your opinion.

The server is a Dell PowerEdge T310.
I'm not running a raid but have three drives installed:
Root (primary drive) 100gb SATA2
2 x 500gb SATA2
8gb DDR3 (planning on upgrading to 16gb)
2.40GHz X3430 4-Cores

and this is connected to fibre optics at 20mb up and 75mb down stream.
The website will be a Wordpress backbone with WooCommerce
There will be an ad campaign through email as well

I plan to run a takeaway ordering website for our local area. I'm expecting about 500+ users to be browsing the site at once with about 100 actually ordering at once.
Can you see any obvious bottlenecks with this setup or recommendations or anything that needs to be planned in relation to hardware or CWP

CentOS 7 Problems / 504 Gateway timeout error
« on: April 09, 2020, 05:41:13 PM »
Apologies if this is in the wrong forum, and if so can I request an admin to relocate it please.
I'm hosting a Woocommerce website on one of my CWP servers and part of the shop ordering process is that when the customer orders a meal they get a popup telling them that the restaurant will either accept or cancel their order. The message keeps refreshing whilst it is waiting for a response from the restaurant kitchen to click at their end to accept the order or not.
If this process takes a little longer than expected, the customer gets a 504 Gateway Timeout error and the popup dissappears leaving the customer unaware if their order is coming or not.
Am I right in thinking that somewhere I need to increase the wait time on the server in order to give this app more time. If so has anyone any idea where this would be.
I'm running PHP 7.3, nginx-varnish-apache. Apache version 2.4.39

CentOS 7 Problems / using www I get site untrusted warning
« on: April 03, 2020, 06:59:08 PM »
Hi guy's.. This has baffled me for a while and I'm trying to work out what I've done or not.
Basically if a user visits our website using they get the padlock and all is well. However, if they visit the website with https:/ they get a warning that the site might be bogus and you shouldn't trust it.
Any ideas what I need to do.

SSL / Only authorised on 8443
« on: February 05, 2020, 01:58:51 PM »
Hi guys, I can't seem to find the answer to this in the forum. I running Nginx varnish Apache and have previously had SSL set up and running fine. Today the website was showing as unsecure. I checked and the certificate was still valid, so I deleted it and installed a new one using auto ssl. However, each time I try and check the certificate I get an error telling me that the certificate is either not installed or unable to read. I have port 443 open in the firewall as well as in the router. If I check the certificate through port 8443 it validates...
What have I done wrong please?

SSL / DNS for your domain dosen't point to this server
« on: September 23, 2019, 08:20:11 PM »
OK I've read all of the topics that I can find relating to this error when it comes down to renewal of Auto SSL. I get the dreaded DNS for your domain dosen't point to this server.
It happened when we changed service providers and had a new IP address. Now I can only issue a self certificate and most web browsers tell the users that the site is dangerous and that hackers will kill their children if they dare to even contemplate viewing it.

I've tried changing from Varnish-Nginx_Apache to simply Nginx, but nothing. Tried to stop firewall, but nothing.
I did change the public IP in CWP settings and rebuilt the web servers. I also changed the IP address in the account settings.
This particular server is only running one domain and the DNS is set up through Free DNS manager and I've done those changes in their too.
The domain hasn't any .htaccess in the root and as far as I know there aren't any 301 redirects set up.
I'm concerned as I have server two going through the same provider changes in a couple of days and that has a lot of domains, so I',m desperate for a solution

I'm running CWP7Pro on both.... any help would be appreciated

CentOS 7 Problems / This site canít provide a secure connection
« on: January 17, 2019, 10:20:08 PM »
I'm a bit stumped.
I've just installed CWP on Centos 7 (all updated) and rebooted the server. I only have one account on this server but so far I have two problems.
1 when trying to log in to domain:2030 I get the error  This site canít provide a secure connection
2 if I try and log in through FTP I get 530 Login authentication failed.

I've updated CWP, checked firewall and replaced the account a few times.

my cwp version is pro
forgot to mention I installed SSL through CWP's auto-install. it checked out through leaf and so on.

« on: December 30, 2018, 05:14:25 PM »
Having followed the tutorial, I chose to install SSL through the auto technique. All seems fine but I've noticed this error on all the domains.

Certificate 1 of 1 in chain: Cert VALIDATION ERROR(S): self signed certificate
So email is encrypted but the recipient domain is not verified
Cert Hostname DOES NOT VERIFY ( != server.recom)
So email is encrypted but the host is not verified

Can anyone point me in the right direction to correct this please. Also what impact does this have on emails please?

CentOS 7 Problems / Forced upgrade PHP-FPM
« on: December 17, 2018, 09:24:51 PM »
What the hell! honestly this shows on every screen and CWP is now dysfunctional. It says that the upgrade is optional but clearly isn't. Strange things are happening like I'm no longer CWP pro.. but was before this forced upgrade.

I tried to upgrade after days of nothing but the splash screen, but now all I have is a notice telling me that the progress is happening in the background... yeah right, 4 days on.

THIS IS BUSTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

CentOS 7 Problems / Can't open a ticket what's the point!
« on: August 26, 2018, 09:25:30 PM »
Paid support has never resolved my issues in the past and now I need support again I'm unable to open a ticket. What's the point of paying for support if it isn't available.
My server is a mess and gives @custom page errors when installed plugings or anything that connects to other databases, my emails on all domains are blocked and marked as insecure. my websites randomly allow uploads and sometimes not. I pay for support through Paypal and constantly get none payment reminders even though it is automatically set up and paid through Paypal. I've never got a reply from billing when I questioned the reminders and to be honest, feel let down by what I thought was a professional organisation.
I love the software and the concept, but I honestly can't go on like this so I'm considering going back to managed hosting

DNS / rDNS and I'm confused
« on: April 11, 2018, 01:17:01 PM »
I suppose I'm not wired to understand dns... it sort of blows my mind.
Anyway although I can see a lot of topics covering this I cannot for the life of me understand what I should be doing to correct the problem. I'm running CWP7 pro for several domain. I've set up freedns manager and all the domains seem to be working fine.
My emails are being returned as the rDNS doesn't point to my server.
Now I know that I have to correct this at the ISP end and they do have a panel for me to change the rNDS and that's my problem. I have no idea what to change it to.
At the moment the rDNS hostname is set to
(xx being my ip address) I'm guessing that I should change the end ( to reflect my server, so where in CWP would I find that information please.

Postfix / Getting error VXNlcm5hbWU6
« on: February 21, 2018, 08:53:43 PM »
I'm getting an error that I presume is from postfix. The error is Error: authentication failed: VXNlcm5hbWU6
This error is generated from my website that is trying to send emails to members at registration. My website uses php mail. Would that be the reason and is there a way to edit postfix to allow my website to send mail.

CentOS 7 Problems / Error 404
« on: December 03, 2017, 05:50:54 PM »
Right here we go!
CWP was running on fire! I canít state how stable and fast things were. Then I brought a UPS and plugged it in. That took out my raid, main drive and two backup drives, and as an extra kick in the teeth, I had the external drive plugged in to usb and it had that too.
Left with nothing much as backups, Iíve been scrounging around for the past five days rebuilding from clouds and other devices. Anyway Iíve done itÖ well almost.
One account has a problem and Iím wondering if the problem is more CWP pro.
I created the account. Then installed the database (mysql without errors). I then restored the public_html directory to the correct home directory for the account. After that I chowned permissions and tried the account and got an error 404.
I checked htaccess and that seemed fine. Looked in the sql database and the table shows that it is calling the correct url and I decided to browse the contents of public_html for that account whilst in file explorer and can see that file permissions are all set correctly.
All the other accounts have reinstalled fineÖ oh and I rebuild php and Apache v host but nothing has changed, I still get error 404 on this account.
Any ideas please?

Information / A simple thank you!
« on: November 23, 2017, 07:38:57 PM »

I just wanted to thank the team behind Centos Web Panel (CWP).
Due to need I was driven down the self-host direction and everyone told me donít bother as it is difficult and risky.
Having tried all the web panels (free and paid for) I have to say that CWP is the most comfortable of them all. In fact, it is the nearest web panel to Cpanel in my opinion. Iíve even managed to fix issues that my host company couldnít resolve.
CWP is stable and polished giving the end user confidence to invest time and energy building a future with the knowledge that CWP is backed up with good support and a solid knowledge base.
So, thank you all so much and I wish you all the best.

E-Mail / spam sent through user account
« on: November 21, 2017, 11:57:32 PM »
I have a user that has a couple of email accounts for a domain I host. The domain is nothing more than a htaccess redirect to another domain, so there's no database or files in the public_html (apart from htaccess).
Now this user is reporting spam (about 100 daily) and just recently noticed a spam email sent in his domain email address as if he had sent it.
the user is running anti virus and I'm running Spamassasin, clamav, AMaViS and SpamHause.
Could this be a server infection or a missconfiguation that allows email to be sent with the users account details?
