I too am having problems with this. I have also placed a query on one or 2 other threads on thus forum about it...could it be because CWP is a php driven control panel and therefore pup defaults also apply to the panel?

Things like php max file size, php max post size, php timeout settings, php memory limits etc etc? Tue defaults for php are tiny and if these also applied to the CWP itself, would they all need to be dramatically increased?

I too am having problems with this.
I have been thinking about it for a while and I wonder...the Centos-web panel is php driven is it not?

I wonder if php restrictions/directives also apply to the panel itself?

If so, that would mean php max file size, php max post size, php memory limit, timeout settings etc all might all have to be increased dramatically from their defaults for this to work?

I found that even when uploading the cpanel backup manually via ftp I was striking similar was uploading only about 4%, of the total cpanel backup...I increased php7 max file size a bit, then it would upload I'm not sure???

It seems weird to me that any of these settings should even apply to root user via file manager when migrating.

I am also starting to think that the reason this panel appears so buggy is because we are all used to control panels that are not built on php.

Mod_Security / Excessive Resource Usage:Clamupdate

My system has the following specs
CWP Pro (latest stable)
2GB RAM No cache (61% used)
1.72GB Memory cached (86%)
1GB Swap (only 7% used, 93% available)

I am getting the following notification when freshclam is executed and i want to fix it. At this point in time, changing system specs is not my preferred option.

How to fix the following notification?

CentOS-WebPanel GUI / Root User - Filemanager upload stalls at 5%
« on: November 19, 2019, 05:31:45 AM »
Why is a file upload stalling at around 5-7% when logged into CWP as root user?

I understand that normal users may have quota and php restrictions, however the CWP Root user should have no such restrictions via the File Manager.

I tried to use the method outlined by CWP Wiki  however even when changing the memory limit to 1000MB i still cannot get past 7% (did not see a "post_max_size" in php.ini)

If I leave it for a while, it eventually says upload complete, but nothing is uploaded to /home.

I did some googling and found this website where it says that CWP file manager doesnt allow large file size uploads and offers a workaround????

Is the above website correct? If not, how to i fix CWP file Manager so it will allow large file size uploads for Root User? (step by step procedure please with details suited to the filesize below)

I am trying to upload a Cpanel Backup that i intend to restore to CWP...filesize is just under 1GB.


FTP / Re: Directory listing in FTP gives timeout
« on: November 19, 2019, 01:20:38 AM »
sometimes, in addition to the Centos-Webpanel Wiki about using Passv mode, there is another reason for this issue that has nothing to do with firewalls.

for example,

A.  If you use Filezilla, then check the following...

Filezilla>File Menu>Site Manager>My Sites (select your saved site)

Then go to over to the right-hand side of Filezilla window and look at tabs (General, Advanced, Transfer settings, Charset) and click "Advanced" tab

Ensure that under "Default Remote Directory" you have at least given a directory...I use "/" (without "").

B. If using WinSCP, then do the following...

Goto Sessions>Sites>Site Manager>Edit Site> Advanced>Directories>Remote Directory, and ensure that "/" (without "") is set as your remote directory.

This fixes the problem for me in both of the above ftp clients.

none of the built in FTP Auto Configuration files work.

Filezilla and Transport both have the following content.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
         <Pass encoding="base64"></Pass>
         <LocalDir />
         <RemoteDir />

Clicking on the Cyberduck image just directs to Cyberduck website.

What is wrong here?

SSL / CWP Tutorial on Hostname SSL has an error
« on: November 18, 2019, 09:16:42 PM »
In Wiki it says,

In cwp.admin left menu go to --> CWP Settings --> Change Hostname save there your hostname.

this is wrong...its actually Server Settings>Change Hostname

Can someone please update this Wiki and make it so we can actually follow it?

Also, does this even work? I dont see anything in this menu that even suggests that a Letsecnrypt SSL will be the one installed. I actually suspect it will install a self signed cert because on my server there is no Letsencrypt checkbox?

under what circumstances would the Letsencrypt option not be available? (I am using external DNS A records and domain my registrar nameservers)

SSL / Re: SSL does not work on hostname
« on: November 18, 2019, 09:06:41 PM »
I am having a bit of a problem with this myself...however, without being able to see the browser certificate details, i would say its because your has a "Self Signed" SSL certificate (as does mine)

My understanding is that we obviously need to use a CA registered authority Cert such as Lets Encrypt SSL ...was there a "Checkbox" for Lets Encrypt SSL cert when you performed a Hostname change? (I believe there is supposed to be a checkbox and you need to select it)

I am still trying to figure out how to do this because i have not yet found any reference tutorial on how to do it that actually works with the current version of CWP.

In the new version of CWP it is a bit easier.
You can follow the steps here

Make sure your hostname has a SSL installed at Webserver Settings -> SSL Certificates -> List Installed (not self signed, but Let's Encrypt) and copy the file location for the key and bundle files.

Then go to Webserver Settings -> WebServers Conf Editor -> Apache -> /usr/local/apache/conf.d/ and edit the hostname-ssl.conf by changing the
SSLCertificateFile /etc/pki/tls/certs/hsotname.bundle
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/pki/tls/private/hostname.key
to the location you copied before.

You need to do this for Nginx as well if you are using it.
Then restart Apache (and Nginx) and verify that it is working

How can this work when the hostname doesnt yet have any Letsenrcypt SSL cert but a self signed one? There is no certificate in Webserver Settings>SSL certificates because (ie CWP panel) is not a user in CWP? This only shows certificate for CWP users.

CentOS-WebPanel GUI / Re: Does "CWPpro Terminal" work for you?
« on: November 18, 2019, 05:09:38 AM »
ok so this is now like 6 months after last post...I am still getting the exact screen that the original O.P complained about.

Has this been fixed at all yet? How do we get this working?

I notice that my does not use SSL to login to CWP. Is this the reason why it doesnt work? I will try to get SSL for CWP and see what happens.

PHP Selector / Re: CWP PHP Selector [CWPpro required]

I know few CWP alternatives and tested few 2 years before and all were good except 1/2 features.

Now as CWP wants to hold our installation on ransom and asking for money by disabling feature without any advance/visible notice, can someone please inform the best alternative to CWP?

Of course the charges are not high and I have donated that amount to some other app devs, but I just simply dont understand what is this way of forcibly asking to buy software by disabling basic features which were provided in FREE version before. I am totally disappointed.

Please let me know the good and tested alternatives by you guys.

whilst i understand your frustration at the change in the way control panels works in free verses paid/pro version, in all honesty, CWP are charging such a tiny amount of money for the pro version (they are virtually giving it away), i really dont think anyone should complain about the restrictions placed on free version.

Just pay the money for pro version so that the developers can afford to pay for more staff to make this panel better. The panel needs a lot of work to get it up to those who pay for pro version are ultimately helping themselves in the long run.

Now if CWP suddenly made a massive price increase (to Cpanel levels), well that would be a whole different story...and a foolish choice if it ever happened (people would leave in droves).

in the meantime there are a number of alternatives...

Vestacp - relatively basic level of control and quite a decent panel these days. It has a very nice simple interface, but when you need to really get into the nitty gritty, this panel comes up way short)

ISPConfig - extremely well supported with extensive documentation and tutorials and the $10 x 300 page manual is a must buy. Traditionally it was mechanical to configure, however the auto installer has made things a lot easier. This panel is extremely robust and reliable...I cant ever remember anything ever having gone wrong with it on my servers.

Virtualmin - A big player in the opensource market with a very complex and highly powerful panel. Unfortunately, the panel layout is a complete maize, the documentation is utter crap (tutorials aimed at the end user instead of administrator which is useless) and its difficult to administer because of this. Having said that, it provides access via a gui to almost every part of a server. A word of warning, dont mess with the default install...shit will hit the fan for sure if you do this!

I am a Virtualmin user for my client websites so i am trying not to be biased, however i think even with its GUI inteface design and layout flaws, it is still the best of the bunch at the moment. Next would definately be ISPConfig...and its probably a good option in the middle between CWP and Virtualmin.

O.P. Also, If you cannot log into CWP user interface at all, then you would need to use SSH program such as Putty to log into the command shell backend of your server and check users from there.

for example...from command shell in Putty you could type

less /etc/passwd


awk -F: '{ print $1}' /etc/passwd (this shows just the usernames)


cut -d: -f1 /etc/passwd (also shows just usernames)


getent passwd


getent passwd | cut -d: -f1

If you want to just check for a particular user on your system...

getent passwd | grep username (where username is the user you are looking admin )

Once you have an account that can log in, then you may check packages for that user by...

CWP dashboard>User Accounts>Edit Account (little cog on RHS of user list)...

under "Account Edit", you can check/select "Package"

If there are none in this list, then you need to create them under dashboard>packages (there should at least be a default package in list)

2hat is the output of the mxtoolbox dns, mxrecords, smtp checks? (Post them all)

Is it sending mail? Are sent mail also being received other end? If not have you got spf, dkim, _DMARC records? (Quite often emails are not delivered if these are missing)

I stopped using Blesta in favour of whmcs (which is actually much better value for money anyway)

That file needs it's permissions checking. Is it writable by postfix?
