I am a CWP Pro user, and I love it! I am about to celebrate my first year next month!

I wonder if there is a way to prevent the installation of the built-in DNS feature of CWP because I am using Cloudflare for it. And also, the main features, too, because I use another service (website) to handle the emails of my domain.

It is because I see many errors. Regardless of how often I start my VPS, I still see the same errors. And some of them, when I start the mail services manually, they eat up a lot of memory and processes.



Let me know your thoughts, and hopefully, we'll devise a solution.

More info about my VPS and CWP installation:





Thanks!

if you want to disable this and that...
it will make error for the CWP panel.. because: (the simple example)

CWP will tell ERROR found, cannot load email
why cwp tell error?
when cwp root or user loaded, it will check link integrity...

even you have already fix that,everytime cwp update (i think) u will need to re-do what u do before.
simple way
goto startup services and disable it.

but it will broke something
about dns, you can edit the template, or just ignore it.. from CF  u use IN A ? correct  ? i use CF for some my personal domain... and i set IN A and Route CF MX to gmail ...
if i have client, i just ask them to add domain DNS to my free CF DNS (savvy.xxxx or something)

and just simple like that. if i want spam score (email 10/10) i just copy my SPF/DMARC/DKIP from cwp to CF (actually there is some script to do that automatically, but for me is dificult. im n00b and too lazy RTFM )

Ok, where can I find "startup services" and where can I disable it?
Yes, I am completely using Cloudflare. So, I manually enter the DNS configuration.
I use MXRoute for my email service or MX something.
The CWP is just simply and mainly for web hosting.

You can disable mail services if you like with no impact on the server. That's totally fine.
But you MUST have working DNS on the server for local name resolution and services to function properly.

I understand your concerns regarding the built-in DNS feature of CWP and the email services. To prevent the installation of the built-in DNS feature, you can customize your CWP installation and exclude the DNS component during the setup process.

As for the email services, you can configure CWP to use the external email service you prefer instead of the built-in one. This way, you can ensure that your domain's emails are handled by the other service you mentioned.

To address the errors and resource usage you're experiencing, it would be helpful to gather more information about your VPS and CWP installation. Please provide additional details about your VPS specifications and any specific error messages you're encountering so that we can better assist you in finding a solution.

Thank you for reaching out, and we'll work together to find the best resolution for your situation.
