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?

CentOS 7 Problems / internal server error and 503 permissions
« on: November 08, 2017, 02:06:22 PM »
Hi guys.
Iím having a problem with permissions and I think it may be due to the php version Iíve installed on the server.
Emails give an error forbidden 503 and so do the websites and also if I try and view websites through account and ip address I get an internal server error 500.
Just before these errors occurred the server was working fine and then httpd service failed. As I was unable to restart the service I used yum to reinstall and start the service. I then took the opportunity to upgrade the server php version from 5.3 to 7.0 and it seems that that has caused the problems I have now.
In a bid to sort that problem out I reverted back to php version 5.3 by rebuilding the selector and then restarting the httpd service. The problem continued.
Looking in Apache2 error log I see the following:
Code: [Select]
[Wed Nov 08 14:04:41.081278 2017] [:error] [pid 27686:tid 140447787747072] [client] Failed loading /usr/local/php56/lib/php/extensions/  /usr/local/php56/lib/php/extensions/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory300mb of log saying the same two errors.
So I rebuilt php 5.3 from selector and included ioncube and zen in the build. I then ran the following command
Code: [Select]
sh /scripts/update_ioncuberestarted httpd services and the problem is still there.
Any ideas please.

Backup / Backup to local NAS
« on: October 15, 2017, 05:15:39 PM »
Hi guys I can't seem to see how to achieve the following and wondered if anyone could help me with this please.
I have Centos 7 and running CWP version: There is only the one server hosting about 10 VPS clients.
On my local network I have the Centos server behind a NAT router that also hosts a NAS.
I've setup daily and weekly backups in CWP but would like the weekly backups to be backed up to the local NAS.
I'm trying to achieve that I have a backup copy in the local backup directory (CWP backups) and also at least a weekly backup on the NAS.
Any help would be fantastic.

E-Mail / Can send but not receieve
« on: October 08, 2017, 05:37:56 PM »
Guys Iíve been trying to resolve this for about 5 weeks now, Iíve trolled every postfix and dns forum available and although Iím seeing the exact same issues, Iím unable to resolve my problem. Without a doubt this is to do with my lack of understanding of DNS and Postfix.
Anyway, the issue is that Iím unable to receive emails from outside the domain. I can send and the emails are received within seconds. If the emails are returned they donít get sent to my inbox. If I send an email from an external domain they donít end up in my inbox. If I send an email to myself (internally) it turns up in my inbox.
Iíve spoken to my ISP and they say that port 25 is open and they donít restrict anything.
I have access to alter the PTR records at the ISP but Iím not sure what to put there. Iíve put
Thatís the real external IP of the server that is also the ISP IP address. That is also the host name of the server and real domain name.
I was initially running the DNS on the server but decided to use the Free DNS manager and here is the set up.
Code: [Select]
DNS Zone Test
zone loaded serial 2017100704

Domain nameservers are set to:

You need to set your domain nameservers to:

*if you want that your dns records works!

Refresh: 28800
Host Type Destination

@ A

@ MX 10

ftp A

mail A A

www CNAME @
I have only set up one zone, so what you see is the entire DNS.
As I mentioned earlier the domains and IPs are the genuine thing. Iíve published these in the hope of guidance as Iím aware that my lack of knowledge combined with using would further inflame my problem.
Iím hoping that someone will be kind enough to guide me through this problem and I will be able to one day help the community in return.
