  1. Install ImageMagick on cPanel with EasyApache 4 This post will help you to install ImageMagick on cPanel with EasyApache 4. ImageMagick is mainly used to create, edit and convert bitmap images. It supports a variety of image formats. Please click here to get the supported image formats. The ImageMagick can be installed using a simple cPanel script (/scripts/installimagemagick) in the older version of cPanel, but in newer versions of cPanel with EasyApache 4 uses another method to install it. Please check it below: yum install ImageMagick-devel ImageMagick-c++-devel ImageMagick-perl Once the installation is over, run the following command to verify if it is working /usr/bin/convert --version Install ImageMagick PHP extension on cPanel with EasyApache 4 /opt/cpanel/ea-php56/root/usr/bin/pecl install imagick Add ImageMagick extension into the PHP 5.6 configuration file to load the module. vim /opt/cpanel/ea-php56/root/etc/php.ini Add the following into it: extension=imagick.so Restart the web server service httpd restart Then verify the installation /opt/cpanel/ea-php56/root/usr/bin/php -m | grep imagick Note: If you would like to enable ImageMagick PHP module on PHP 7.0, you just need to update the correct binary paths on the above installation. ie., /opt/cpanel/ea-php56/root/usr/bin/pecl to /opt/cpanel/ea-php70/root/usr/bin/pecl /opt/cpanel/ea-php56/root/etc/php.ini to /opt/cpanel/ea-php70/root/etc/php.ini /opt/cpanel/ea-php56/root/usr/bin/php to /opt/cpanel/ea-php70/root/usr/bin/php If you would like to enable the ImageMagick PHP module on the other PHP versions available on EasyApache 4, please do the same by changing the correct binary path. That’s it! https://grepitout.com/install-imagemagick-cpanel-easyapache4/

  3. cPanel has shaken the web hosting community with its recent price rise announcement. They have changed its pricing model from a per server pricing to a per account model. So if you’re a cPanel partner and were paying $11 per cPanel license for each server and running 1,000 websites, you’ll now have to pay $122. That’s approximately 1000% price rise! According to cPanel’s new pricing, here’s the breakup for 1000 websites : $32 for 100 accounts $0.1 each for 900 accounts The “Not So Acceptable” New Pricing The pricing is different depending upon the number of accounts. The price for the end user is comparatively higher than the cPanel partners. General Pricing For 5 accounts – $20/month For 30 accounts – $30/month For 100 accounts – $45/month + $0.20 for each additional account You can find more information about the latest pricing here. cPanel Partner Pricing For 5 accounts – $12.50/month For 30 accounts – $17.50/month For 100 accounts – $32/month + $0.10 for each additional account cPanel Pricing: New vs Old People are criticizing cPanel for rolling out the new pricing model. Let’s see the old and new pricing of cPanel: cPanel Pricing Earlier Before it was simply VPS and dedicated pricing. Latest cPanel Pricing The new pricing will not make a huge difference to people under 5 Accounts. However, as the accounts increase, cPanel will cost more than the server itself. Major Impact on Web Hosting Community Over the years, people have relied on cPanel for managing their sites. cPanel’s popularity is because of its integration with Softaculous, LiteSpeed, PHP Selector, JetBackup, CageFS, CloudLinux, Imunify360, and much more. This has helped cPanel become faster, reliable, secure, and feature-rich. This price increase seems to be a nonstrategic roll out and cPanel has faced major backlash from the web-hosting community! Users on Twitter reacted with a lot of aggression and mostly negatively with most of them threatening to switch to alternative control panels. 1. End-Users While servers with a single account can go for cPanel solo, and servers with under 5 accounts still get the same price, the overall price for end-user is comparatively higher for servers having more than 5 accounts. 2. Shared Hosting Providers or Resellers The worst affected of the whole lot. Mostly, a shared hosting company will run around 1000 websites on a single VM with the $11/mo cPanel VM license. After the new changes come into effect, their cPanel license costs will rise to $122/mo! That’s a whopping 1000% increase and almost equivalent to their infrastructure or server costs 😉 3. Unmanaged Server Providers Generally, unmanaged server providers don’t have the access to the server and therefore, didn’t know how many accounts are on running on a server which was fine because the license was per server. The new pricing model has added an extra layer of efforts for the providers. Now, they need to have a log of how many accounts are being created on a single server, or else they may end up footing the bill of thousands of dollars! Who is Going to Get The Hardest Hit? Shared/Reseller Hosting Providers License holders in price-sensitive countries like Latin America, India, and other South East Asian countries. Should You Remain With cPanel? Pros cPanel has innovated over years with a user-friendly UI and a number of integrations Less time to spend on customer support No need to migrate data and involve in the risk of data loss You will avoid downtime caused while migrating data. Cons With no annual billing, you will face the hassle of monthly invoices, lack of funds, etc. Substantially increased costs may either make business unviable for a few or the end clients will end up paying extra for these additional costs. Coping Up with the cPanel Price Rise If you’re choosing to stay with cPanel, the only solution is to re-evaluate your pricing structure. Only people with 100+ accounts will be hard it. You can transfer the extra 10/20 cents charges to customers. However, be sure to properly communicate the price changes to customers. cPanel Alternatives With this unexpected change, people have already started finding alternatives. Some of them are: DirectAdmin InterWorx Virtualmin/Webmin VestaCP What’s Next? cPanel, WHMCS, SolusVM, and Plesk are under the same umbrella – The Oakley Investment. Here’s the timeline: Oakley acquired Plesk in May 2017 and there was an insane increase in prices between July 2017 to October 2017 WHMCS prices hiked in Aug 2017 Oakley Acquired cPanel in August 2018 and the price hiked in June 2019 SolusVM, are you next? We hope not. https://magehost.com/blog/cpanel-price-rise-impact-solutions/

Changes affecting third-party developers and designers Backwards-incompatible changes that may affect third party applications / plugins: Methods that handle passwords in login handlers (authenticateUsernamePassword(), authenticatePasswordForMember(), changePassword()) now receive an object which can be cast to a string, rather than a normal string, for the password. This reduces the likelihood of a password being included in an error log. The onPassChange MemberSync callback now receives an object which can be cast to a string, rather than a normal string, for the password. This reduces the likelihood of a password being included in an error log.

Code-level fixes that may have been causing bugs in third party apps/plugins: Added code comments to all of the default constant values in init.php explaining what they all do. Ensured all default wizard instances are cast as a string before being sent to the output handler. Fixed an issue when pluralization and sprintf functionality is used together and the placeholder is used in the pluralized string. Fixed an issue with post before register where it was assumed content items would have a container. Fixed an exception when post before registering is checked against a content item that supports reviews but not comments. Fixed some ambiguous column concerns with the \IPS\Content\Item::_comments() method. Fixed an issue editing titles via Ajax when the item class does not use containers. Fixed an issue where the release date may not show correctly for third party plugins or themes. Fixed some functions not being called from the root namespace and throwing an IN_DEV warning. Fixed the widget configuration form being called twice which may result in some form elements duplicating. Improved some extension skeleton files to not cause a ParseError once the extension is created.
  6. Example configurations The following examples explain how to add rules with CSF, APF, and the iptables application. Important: We do not recommend that you use these examples for your personal configurations. Instead, make certain that your firewall rules match the way in which you use cPanel & WHM's services. CentOS 7, CloudLinux™ 7, and Red Hat® Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7 servers have additional requirements. For more information, read the CentOS 7, CloudLinux 7, and RHEL 7 firewall management section below. CSF ConfigServer provides the free WHM plugin CSF, which allows you to modify your iptables rules within WHM. To install CSF, run the following commands as the root user: 1 2 3 4 5 cd /usr/src rm -fv csf.tgz wget https://download.configserver.com/csf.tgz tar -xzf csf.tgz cd csf && ./install.sh To configure CSF, use WHM's ConfigServer & Firewall interface (Home >> Plugins >> ConfigServer & Firewall). Note: For more information about how to install and use CSF, visit the CSF website. APF APF acts as a front-end interface for the iptables application, and allows you to open or close ports without the use of the iptables syntax. The following example includes two rules that you can add to the /etc/apf/conf.apf file in order to allow HTTP and HTTPS access to your system: 1 2 3 # Common ingress (inbound) TCP ports IG_TCP_CPORTS="80,443″# Common egress (outbound) TCP ports EG_TCP_CPORTS="80″ Note: For more information about APF, visit the APF site. iptables The iptables application offers more customization options for your packet filtering rules. This application requires that you understand the TCP/IP stack. The following example includes iptables rules for HTTP traffic on port 80: Note: This example assumes that a DMZ exists on eth0 for the 192.168.1.1 port, and the 66.66.66.66 broadcast IP address. 1 2 $IPTABLES -A FORWARD -p TCP -i 66.66.66.66 -o eth0 -d 192.168.1.1 -dport 80 -j allowed $IPTABLES -A FORWARD -p ICMP -i 66.66.66.66 -o eth0 -d 192.168.1.1 -j icmp_packets Note: For more information about the use of iptables, visit the iptables site, or run the man iptables command from the command line. CentOS 7, CloudLinux 7, and RHEL 7 firewall management Servers that run the CentOS 7, CloudLinux 7, and RHEL 7 operating systems require that you use the firewalld daemon. Important: We recommend that you only use the firewall utilities on CentOS 7, CloudLinux 7, and RHEL 7 servers. Note: For more information about the firewall utilities and the firewalld daemon, read Red Hat's Using Firewalls documentation. The cpanel service Important: The /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/configure_firewall_for_cpanel script clears all existing entries from the iptablesapplication. If you use custom rules for your firewall, export those rules before you run the script and then re-add them afterward. cPanel & WHM version 11.50 and later also includes the cpanel service, which manages all of the rules in the /etc/firewalld/services/cpanel.xml file. This allows TCP access for the server's ports. To replace your existing iptables rules with the rules in the /etc/firewalld/services/cpanel.xml file, perform the following steps: Run the yum install firewalld command to ensure that your system has firewalld installed. Run the systemctl start firewalld.service command to start the firewalld service. Run the systemctl enable firewalld command to start the firewalld service when the server starts. Run the iptables-save > backupfile command to save your existing firewall rules. Run the /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/configure_firewall_for_cpanel script. Run the iptables-restore < backupfile command to incorporate your old firewall rules into the new firewall rules file. https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/CKB/How+to+Configure+Your+Firewall+for+cPanel+Services
  7. IPS Community Suite 4.4.2 Released 03/28/2019 Key Changes Version 4.4.2 is a small maintenance update to fix issues reported since 4.4.1. Additional Information Core Adjusted the AdminCP live search to look for search strings within the name and email address (instead of only at the beginning) for sites with less than 1,000,000 members.

  9. While auditing email accounts in my cPanel I noticed that the space usage on some accounts, especially the default email account is not updated. I checked the mailbox of my default email account via Webmail and noticed nothing there. Then, how it’s showing some MB of space usage in cPanel? I decided to check the back end for any hidden files/folders which causing this issue. I checked the cur, new, tmp, .Trash and .Send folders in its mail directory (/home/username/mail/) and cleared those directories, restarted the cPanel. And nothing changed on cPanel. The size usage for the default email account still showing the same disk space usage. This might be due to the cPanel configuration problem or due to any mess up happened while running the default cPanel scripts to check and update the disk space usage of all the cPanel accounts. We can update it manually. I found the following solution for this disk usage problem on default email account. Please do the following steps to fix it. Method I (This will fix this problem) Step 1 : SSH to server as root user. # ssh root@host Step 2 : Execute the following script: # /scripts/generate_maildirsize --confirm --allaccounts --verbose cpaneluser Replace “cpaneluser” with the cPanel user name. For example: # /scripts/generate_maildirsize --confirm --allaccounts --verbose crybit2012 Here crybit2012 is the user name for that cPanel account. That’s it! Just login into the cPanel once again and check the disk usage now. Method II (If the above method did not work) If the above method did not help, you can use the following steps: Step 1 : SSH to server as root user. Step 2 : Locate the following files email_accounts.yaml and email_accounts.cache and clear/delete. Now check the disk space usage of the email accounts in cPanel and verify that the disk space usage is showing correctly. Please check it and let me know if you have any questions. https://www.crybit.com/email-accounts-disk-space-usage/
  10. The most important part of maintaining a secure CMS installation involves keeping your software and your plugins up to date. It is of vital importance to keep WordPress core, plugins and themes updated. Once an update is released, it needs to be applied as soon as possible to close any security holes. Functional problems with updates must be considered. It is possible that an update will break some of the functionality so a backup is recommended before updating the core.
