CentOS 7 Problems / Re: Memory and Cache usage high
« on: June 21, 2020, 06:03:11 PM »

Found several instance of Netdata running on the server (funny as I've never installed Netdata). I have since uninstalled it and forced a reboot of the server and all seems fine again. Ram now running at 6% cache at 9% as expected.

Has anyone else had this happen to them?

CentOS 7 Problems / Memory and Cache usage high
« on: June 21, 2020, 02:04:03 PM »
I've notice a sudden increase in RAM and CACHE usage that doesn't seem to be easing. I'm running CWP pro and this is on a Dell Power edge with 48gb DDR3 ram and dual Intel Xeon X5675 @ 3.07GHz
Apart from expected services I'm running:
MOD Security

Should I be concerned at this usage?

E-Mail / Re: email spam

Solved ish!

Thanks for the great link. It proved very useful as it highlighted the error I made with DKIM. Although I had installed SPF and DKIM I hadn't placed a default domain key in the dns zone. Now I know that this is don automatically by CWP, but if you are using the DNS Manager it wont be in your dns unless you add it.

Next issue was the spam. I actually found 155 malware viruses in the home/temp file of a domain I was hosting for a third party. I've since deleted the contains of the temp folder and so far no more spam.
Oh and I went through the backups of the daily, weekly and monthly to remove the contains of the temp folder in those backups.

Excellent. Thank you studio4host

E-Mail / email spam
« on: June 18, 2020, 01:12:32 PM »
OK, I'm completely lost on how to track down spam that I have across multiple domains hosted on a single server.
I think I must have misconfigured my email server somehow, but am lost as to how.
The dns checks that I've done all say that the email server is running fine, but here are my issues.
1 when sending emails from any domain I get a warning from the email client that the email I'm sending has the host name
2 spam email isn't being marked as spam and even though I manually mark domain as spam, they still come through

I've run quite a few malware scans and haven't found any infections, but recently a non delivery email was sent back to me and the header was a fake email address from my own host server.

I've checked and I have no open relay, the server is configured not to allow null mail.

I'm running CWP Pro on Centos 7 with all updates. I have spf and dkim and antispam installed and running.

Can anyone suggest where I can begin or what I need to do to check that I've properly configured the mail server please.

SSL / Re: Trusted but invalid how can it be both
« on: May 10, 2020, 05:28:50 PM »
Umm... tried that and it didn't work. However, the script mentioned

Create new order error. LeOrderFinalize not found. {
"type": "urn:itself:params:acme:error:relateLimited",
"Detail": "Error creating new order :: too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains: see

So I'm guessing I'm out of licensing because I've tried too often :(

I have tried to save the host (with the same name whilst all options are ticked) but I still get invalid certificates. I also restarted CWP services, but no difference.
I agree that the DNS service I'm using isn't the best and may look in to changing that as well.

I've installed a combo SSL license through CWP Autossl and it says that all services are licensed (Ftp, Cpanel, Webmail and so on) I've also checked using the test buttons 1 through to 4 and as far as I can see the certificates are all fine. I've entered "A" records for the host name, ptr records and hostname resolve with dns, yet every browser I've tried says that the certificates for the host is invalid. the host is
Clearly I must have done something wrong... Has anyone got any ideas that might help please?

Installation / Paid configuration
« on: April 30, 2020, 10:00:33 PM »
Although I have two accounts of CWP pro on two servers. I'm about to set up portal for several small businesses in our area. I'm doing this for them in the hope that when the time comes (after the shutdown) they can use the online presence to re-build their business.
That said I need the CWP configured to the most secure and best practice it can possible be.
Is their a paid service that can do this?
I can't take risks with other peoples chances and need this done correctly.

Other / Hardware firewall
« on: April 30, 2020, 09:52:40 PM »
I've decided to upgrade a few things and wondered what are your thoughts on hardware firewalls. Do I need one Does the firewall in CWPpro protect the operating system as well.

I have fibre connection to the server and at present use a Fritzbox 3940 as a router. I'm thinking to upgrade the fritzbox with something that has better security, but since I've just paid out a load on IT kit, I don't have a lot of money left. What would you recommend (if I need it at all) a router for this job please?

That's a good point ;)

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 / Re: 504 Gateway timeout error
« on: April 10, 2020, 04:00:08 PM »
Hi and thanks for the reply.
According to the API I'm running CGI

But I'm running forced PHP-FPM would that also be an issue?

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 / Re: using www I get site untrusted warning
« on: April 03, 2020, 10:23:01 PM »

I did manage it once for one of my domains. FQD along with DNS... but it took me a while and I think it turned me blind a bit. Perhaps now that we are all in a lockdown I might try with this domain :)
