Announcing: cPanel & WHM’s Official Let’s Encrypt with AutoSSL Plugin

In cPanel & WHM version 58 we introduced a new feature called AutoSSL. I posted about AutoSSL before, but in case you haven’t heard of it yet: AutoSSL allows you to enable a feature in your cPanel & WHM account package which triggers the automatic request and installation of Domain Validated Comodo-signed SSLs for your customers, free of charge. Security is incredibly important to us, and this is a feature we’ve been working on for a very …

cPanel & WHM’s AutoSSL

  Three and a half years ago (in a galaxy far, far away) cPanel began planning a feature that we hoped would make the entire internet safer and more secure. There have been a lot of changes, both in the industry and in the company, since then. It took significant re-writes of a lot of the systems inside cPanel & WHM and the cPanel store, but it’s finally here. In cPanel & WHM version 58 we …

Development Update: 58 is coming, and 60 is beginning!

This month was good to the cPanel development team. With cPanel & WHM version 58 in CURRENT, we’re laser focused on fixing bugs and building new features for version 60. We’re hoping to see version 58 make it to RELEASE next week, which will allow us to release a public build of version 60 for the EDGE tier, and we’re very close to publishing a new plugin. There’s a lot of motion, so …

EasyApache 3 Deprecation Schedules

  EasyApache 3 has served us well for the past 10 years, but it’s almost time for us to say goodbye. While EasyApache3 did its job, and did it for a long time, there were many improvements that we wanted to make. The biggest external complaint was that EasyApache 3 took between 20 – 30 minutes just to add a PHP or Apache module. That’s CRAZY! Internally, we struggled with maintenance as …

3 Ways to Prevent Email Abuse

  Over 100 billion emails get sent per day. Everything from simple out-of-office alerts to heavily private account and billing summaries gets transferred across servers, across the web, from person to person. And while we expect the things we send and deliver to remain protected and secured, we know that that isn’t always the case. There are various ways emails can be compromised, however, there are also a number of things that you can …

Scared Rabbit | An Unexpected Journey into Web Hosting

The trope of the tech nerd turned internet rockstar is one we’ve heard time and time again in the past few years. However, in the case of one of our own cPanel & WHM users, Aaron Hiatt, this storyline seemed to happen in reverse. Migrating from lead guitarist of a rock band to the frontman of his own digital and print agency, Hiatt and his company, Scared Rabbit, truly illustrate how diverse …

Bye bye, prelinking!

Older versions of operating systems used prelink to preprocess modules and improve system performance. However, newer operating systems do not require prelink for performance enhancement. Also, the prelink module has compatibility issues with our RPM system, and we removed support for prelink in cPanel & WHM version 54. Soon, we will add the removal of prelink to our Autofixer repository. cPanel & WHM version 11.50 and later will automatically remove prelink from your system. For …

Free cP Starter Style

The Paper Lantern theme has come a long way since I last wrote about customizing the cPanel interface. As of this date, the instructions are still valid with a few minor adjustments. The theme continues to evolve and with each improvement, the code must also be updated for any custom styles that you may have already created. With that said, I have created a new template, called cP Starter that allows you to modify the …

Development Update: cPanel & WHM version 58 is coming, and starting version 60

UPDATE 7/7/16 Due to problems in the security and usability, the following features have been removed from cPanel & WHM version 58, and are now targeted for v60: Enhanced PHP-FPM support This includes both the UI that was included in WHM and the relevant API calls. In the event that you have configured your server to use PHP-FPM on EDGE, your current implementation will not be altered, but you will not be able to manage …
