Big Changes in cPanel & WHM version 58

Several big changes are coming in cPanel & WHM version 58. As we continue to work on these changes, we want to get your feedback! Here’s a few of the big changes we’re working on.

Bandmin removal

We are currently working to remove bandmin from our product. We want to know… do you still use bandmin, and if so, how and why do you use it?

Bandwidth information is available in other ways. For example, while server admins and bandmin users can visit their users’ domains (for example, your.domain.net/bandwidth), this information is also available cPanel’s Bandwidth interface (Home >> Metrics >> Bandwidth). 

If you currently use bandmin, could you be equally effective using the Bandwidth interface?

Roundcube RPM

We are converting Roundcube into an RPM, which also changes how you customize Roundcube. In cPanel & WHM version 58 and later, you will customize Roundcube by modifying and rebuilding the source RPM (SRPM).

Do you currently customize Roundcube, and will you feel able to do the same customizations through modifying the SRPM?

Other changes

We’re also working on some other big changes. Each of these projects will likely have their own outreach as we get closer to release, so look for more information on these in the future:

  • EasyApache 4 will become the default.
  • PHP-FPM or mod-ruid2 may replace suPHP as the default.
  • We are updating our internal PHP, which might affect partner plugins.
  • We are updating several JS dependencies, including the removal of angular-ui-utils.
  • We are removing stunnel support.
