Google is now all-in on DMARC for delivery to Gmail, so definitely check that.

I'm just giving you a general impression, based on bug/trouble reports here on this forum. Rocky seems to have a rockier track record than AlmaLinux, which is generally smoother.

Whenever I enable a new version of php for use with php-fpm, I copy the previous version's $USER conf to the new version, updating the paths therein to correctly reflect the version.
Code: [Select]

Do you have SPF records in place? Valid PTR record (reverse DNS) with your hosting company/ISP?

Like almost all of CWP's documentation, that recommendation is out of date. The word from experienced users is that pinned, delayed repos is not sufficient to make a stable server out of a rolling beta release. Go with AlmaLinux.

Better to ELevate to AlmaLinux 8, then upgrade to AlmaLinux 9 once CWP comes out of EL9 beta.
(In other words, the current best wisdom is to skip over a rolling release like CentOS 8 Stream, which is not a viable foundation for a server.)

E-Mail / Re: Roundcube update not working due to php version of cwpsrv
« on: April 04, 2024, 04:10:36 PM »
My radar is up... keen to know what version of PHP is used internally for cwpsrv in EL9, and what version of Roundcube is included by default!

Your server FQDN (fully qualified domain name) is your server's hostname + domain name. Example: -- The hostname is actually just "srv1" and the domain name is "". For proper mail delivery. your server's FQDN should be a forward DNS A record that is resolvable on the public internet. And your ISP or colocation/VPS provider handles the PTR (rDNS) records for their netblock, since it is looked up via IP address. Mail servers interacting with your server expect to check your DNS forward & backward to confirm its identity. It's the biggest factor required for mail delivery to succeed (but now you also have to worry about SPF records, DKIM / DMARC...)

Feel free to post your journal snippet pertaining to your Apache error, or the specific error you are encountering and we can try to help you with that.

Is this a fresh server install or are you invested in it? If starting fresh, the recommendation is AlmaLinux 8. Rocky has historically been rather "rocky" at times...

It is expected that the FQDN of the server has rDNS (PTR record). So, in your example it is You do not need ALL domains hosted on the server to have rDNS -- just so long as you have that main A record as resolvable forward & backward.

Installation / Re: Public beta of CWP for AlmaLinux 9 Available

(But my momma taught me how to count, so I have to go from 7 to 8 before I go to 9!)

It's worth mentioning again: if you are creating a fresh server today, don't use a beta OS like CentOS 8 Stream (even with delayed repos). Instead, start with AlmaLinux 8 (a true enterprise Linux, fit for server duty).

Please just pay the devs their bit of money for Pro. It is worth it for all they bring to the table -- a good value proposition. Otherwise, seek out a free panel like Webmin if that will meet your needs.

I read about that:
No, the only EL distro affected was an unstable Fedora 40, far upstream and beta to our EL8 server OSes.
