Bugs / Re: Some of the software failed with Debian 9
« on: May 22, 2018, 12:22:09 pm »
I finally got around to additional testing in debian 9.

Ok, I added software-properties-common to the installer and upgrader.  This package is evidently needed to use add-apt-repository commands. 

Thanks for the report.  It should be fixed in the next released version (soon).

I've noticed the same issue in Ubuntu 16.04.  I don't know what's causing it to hang sometimes after the PASV command is issued.  I haven't found anything helpful in the logs either.

It appears you can work around this issue by disconnecting your FTP client and then reconnecting to the server.  It seems to happen randomly...

I'll try to dig into it further, but it could just be a bug with the VSFTPD package.  It works great on my Ubuntu 14.04 server.

EHCP installs and configures an FTP server for you.  This is separate from FTP over SSH.  As long as you use FTP account credentials that have been created in the EHCP panel, you should be able to connect using a normal FTP client. 

Are you using the latest version of EHCP Force Edition?  I believe you're confusing normal SSH access over setting up and using FTP accounts in EHCP.

I'm not seeing anything out of the normal.  Some packages will fail to install depending on the operating system and version, but that's normal and OK because of compatibility reasons with older and newer operating system versions.

Did you install software-properties-common for any particular reason?

What FTP client are you using?  What operating system and version?  It looks like it worked, but is timing out for some reason.  Check your auth and sys logs to see if anything shows up there.

Yes, I've never seen that before, nor have I heard anyone complain about that before either.

Extplorer will NOT work for the user logged into EHCP until an FTP account is created for that user in the panel.  The FTP account for a user is created when the user attempts to add his first domain to the panel.  It makes sense that it would work this way because before the FTP account is created, the user has no access to files or a configured home directory on the server to store files in. 

Extplorer is a standalone web file manager that is installed globally with the panel.  It can be accessed from any theme by using the URL.  If it's missing in a theme, you can easily add it by modifying the templates and adding the proper hyperlink code based on where you want it to go.

The picante theme is the most up-to-date theme in EHCP Force Edition.  With EHCP Force Edition now being on GitHub, you can make the changes to the other theme's template yourself, create a pull request, and then it will get merged into the code.  I don't have time to update the old themes, and quite honestly, a new theme system should be created for EHCP driven by a database... but it's not simple, so this will probably not be done.

Furthermore, it is recommended you use an actual FTP client to upload and download website files.  I recommend the free version of CoreFTP

General / Moving to GitHub!

We're moving away from SourceForge and are now using GitHub for source code version control.  Check out our new GitHub page here:

This shouldn't impact anyone using EHCP Force Edition.  You can update by using the scripts on our download page:

I'm tired of SourceForge and their issues, so we're now using git and subversion (svn) for version control via GitHub.

I can't really help you as I've never run into this issue before on any environment.  Try it in a Virtualbox VM, and it should work just fine. 

I've run the installer on real linux machines, virtual machines, proxmox virtual machines, and more... though, I've never tried using Digital Ocean for anything.  Also, there is no 14.5 version of Ubuntu.  I'm assuming you meant 14.04.5?


It looks like DigitalOcean uses KVM virtualization, which is also what I use on my servers, so it should work just fine.  Did you insert some kind of weird character?  Is the account using the bash shell as their default shell?  Are your running the script as the root user or using sudo?  Does it show the following when you run this command for the user you're running the script as sudo?

Code: [Select]
cat /etc/passwd

User should have the following for their shell (bolded part means it's good):


What are your keyboard settings?  Also which version / installation instructions are you using?

What is the email address you're attempting to use?  You can send me a private message here on the forums with the email address if you don't want to post it out there for the whole world to see (which I'd understand).

Google's mail filters are quite strict.  This is normal, but there are things you can do to make it less likely to be marked as spam.  The best thing you can do is set up a reverse DNS record for your IP address that points to your main domain.

This will usually help a ton. 

Good luck!
