Problems on other RedHat linux servers / Re: Port 2030 does not open
« on: January 08, 2023, 07:52:45 PM »
And best practice is to run everything under HTTPS -- so you can skip 2030 and go for 2031 instead. I prefer that, as well as 2096 for webmail, instead of HTTP on 2095. (I prefer not to follow cPanel's port conventions, though -- I don't like using 2087 for the admin panel.)

Problems on other RedHat linux servers / Re: CWP working on RHEL 7.4
« on: January 08, 2023, 07:49:24 PM »
Good to know! With Red Hat giving out 16 free licenses to RHEL, it is a viable option for smaller scale operations. I could do use it in my setting with only 4 servers, but will probably go with AlmaLinux or Rocky Linux due to the open source licenses that are unencumbered.

you can try running whowatch to help you determine whodunnit.

CentOS 7 Problems / Re: What do you think about this " ?

I have to agree with Jose.
Shilling for "BulletProof Security Pro" in this forum seems to be the wrong topic in the wrong forum.

CentOS 7 Problems / Re: /tmp should be owned by root:root

Yes, /tmp should be owned by root:root:

CentOS 7 Problems / Re: LDF many blocked
« on: January 08, 2023, 07:11:22 AM »
Send LDF messages to a dedicated e-mail address, not your own or admin e-mail. Mine is simply Have it set to check silently in your mail program (mark as read, do not notify). Skim it occasionally (daily/weekly) or have rules set up to inform you of more unusual activity. But all those basic attacks, you can generally ignore.

But one piece of advice that has given me a lot of peace: don't run SSH on port 22 or 2222. Both of those ports are constantly scanned and brute force attacked, esp. by FritzFrog and others. So if you run on an alternate port, you will indeed a measure of "security through obscurity."

Rather than manually cleaning logs, I suggest truncating them to zero bytes. Safer than recreating things or messing with permissions:
Code: [Select]
[overseer@srv2 ~]$  du -sh /usr/local/cwpsrv/logs/error_log
403M /usr/local/cwpsrv/logs/error_log
[overseer@srv2 ~]$ sudo truncate -s0 /usr/local/cwpsrv/logs/error_log
[overseer@srv2 ~]$  du -sh /usr/local/cwpsrv/logs/error_log
0 /usr/local/cwpsrv/logs/error_log

Did you manually try to edit the mail_queue file? It is IonCube obfuscated (encoded), and CWP explicitly warns agains decoding or tinkering with it:
Code: [Select]
<?php //0042b
// Copyright CentOS WebPanel, Decoding is FORBIDDEN
// All Rights Reserved.
if(!extension_loaded('ionCube Loader'...

CentOS 7 Problems / Re: How to change Owner and Group on a Directory
« on: January 08, 2023, 06:55:09 AM »
Here's a fun little one-liner you can execute from a root terminal that will reset ownership on all your user directories in /home:
Code: [Select]
for i in $(ls /home); do chown $i:$i /home/$i; done

Does your router support loopback / NAT hairpin?

CentOS 7 Problems / Re: NGINX php-fpm 502 and no sockets created
« on: January 08, 2023, 06:44:17 AM »
This doesn't sound nginx related -- I've encountered this with php-fpm and enabling new versions of PHP. The users directory is not created automatically for that new version after building it and will create an error of the .sock file missing. So you have to copy over your older users directory. For example, after enabling php 8.1, I had to create:
this way:
Code: [Select]
sudo cp -r /opt/alt/php-fpm74/usr/etc/php-fpm.d/users /opt/alt/php-fpm81/usr/etc/php-fpm.d/usersand then edit the new conf files to reflect the new version:
Code: [Select]
sudo perl -pi.back -e 's/php-fpm74/php-fpm81/g;' /opt/alt/php-fpm81/usr/etc/php-fpm.d/users/*.confThen restart the php-fpm process:
Code: [Select]
sudo service php-fpm81 restart

This tutorial seems to be a rather comprehensive explainer. On my end, I haven't enabled IPv6 because it isn't yet needed in our environment. Maybe as things become more parallel it will be worth enabling.

I think the current pricing is fair -- esp. when compared to cPanel's pricing tiers (and the overall quality assurance difference) -- but it depends on the # of sites on your server -- to make an economical comparison. My experience over the last 3+ years has been generally good and worth the 3x Pro licenses I carry, along with the 2x paid support tickets (worth it during a cPanel server migration). But there have been headaches and road blocks along the way that cause me to hesitate thinking it is worth more $$ per year, across the board. As suggested, if you are having a fabulous experience with CWP and think it worth it, feel free to donate. For me, I am donating my time and sending back bug reports and contributing to this forum. I also hope to contribute to the wiki & documentation, as there is a lot of updating and spit-n-polish that needs to be done to fill in some of the gaps there.

Information / Re: Future of CWP?
« on: January 07, 2023, 11:18:56 PM »
Let me chime in and say, I'm totally on board the CWP train for any of my servers that need LAMP/LEMP functionality (i.e. general purpose web server). It has enabled me to ditch the monthly cPanel tax, as its cPanel -> CWP migration feature, while not flawless was functional. So over the last several years I have become more and more familiar with its internal plumbing, after being on cPanel/WHM for the last decade before that. So while there are some bugs and issues, it is totally workable and affordable.

Even with Red Hat pulling the rug out from under us with CentOS support ending, we have viable alternatives with RockyLinux and AlmaLinux. (I don't really count CentOS 8 Stream being a viable alternative to the stability and long term support offered by CentOS 6 and now CentOS 7.) So I look forward to migrating to either Rocky or Alma before June 2024 when CentOS 7 is EOL.

So welcome to CWP -- enjoy the ride!

Information / Re: Gateway timeout 504 on nginx + apache
« on: January 07, 2023, 11:06:56 PM »
Anecdotally, nginx seems more like that canary that is prone to producing 504 gateway errors. I have had few errors with apache-based servers. My server which uses nginx produces them far more frequently -- enough to be noticeable, for sure.
