Technical Help / Re: SVN

What version of php is in the svn release and version of php are in stable release since i updated my site has error for php 5.5
Is there a way to roll back the php version?

Hi NukeSter,

The version of PHP that gets installed on your system depends on the operating system package manager.  EHCP Force is written for php 5.x and below.  Our software installs the PHP package by using your distribution's package manager.  In Ubuntu, we install it using apt-get install php5.  What operating system and version are you running?

Is EHCP Force usable at all with PHP 5.5 or not? What kind of errors are you getting?  Can you paste a few of them in here?  I tested with PHP 5.5.x, and I'm not seeing anything that isn't working? 

It may be possible to revert back to a previous version of PHP, but I'll need to know what version of linux you're running before I can attempt to find that information for you.

Could you please tell me the owner and group on the folders that clients are having issues with?  Also, what are the chmod permissions?

Permissions should work correctly out of the box so that wordpress and other applications update properly.

I noticed that call was in the EHCP Default theme.  This theme will be removed in the next release.  It is recommended you use picante or ep-ic as your control panel theme.  These are the true EHCP Force themes.

In /etc/fail2ban/jail.local find the sasl section and enable it.  It should look similar to this:

Code: [Select]

enabled  = true
port = smtp,ssmtp,imap2,imap3,imaps,pop3,pop3s
filter   = sasl
# You might consider monitoring /var/log/warn.log instead
# if you are running postfix. See
logpath  = /var/log/mail.log
maxretry = 4

I think that will do it?  I tested the regex based on your log.  It should ban after 4 failed attempts against sasl. 

After downloading official Ubuntu system updates and package updates, sometimes software that EHCP Force Edition relies on may stop working properly.  Maybe FTP connections no longer work, and your FTP client returns an error message from the server when you attempt to connect.  Perhaps apache2 stops working and outputs a syntax error.  Any issues that occurred after downloading official updates might be fixed by running the EHCP Force Edition update script.  The update script not only updates EHCP Force core files, but it also re-installs specific software packages that have been patched to work with our integration of EHCP and fixes various configuration settings to make sure your system will keep working properly. 

It is OK to run the update script more than once (your custom settings, domains, files, email, MySQL databases, and other EHCP settings will not be lost). 

To run the update script, please use the following commands:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install subversion
cd ~/Downloads
if [ -e "" ]; then
    rm ""
svn export "svn://"
sudo bash ""

If your issue has not been solved after running the update script, please start a new topic in the Technical Help forum.

I tested modsecurity in the SVN Dev version of EHCP Force with the latest version of Ubuntu 14.04 x64 with the latest package updates.  I didn't run into any issues at all.  Perhaps you could try reinstalling mod_security by updating to the latest SVN version (not officially released yet, but a release is coming soon, and I do believe the latest code is stable) by running the following commands:

Code: [Select]
#Update to Latest Code (SVN Version)
sudo apt-get install subversion
cd ~/Downloads
if [ -e "" ]; then
    rm ""
svn export "svn://"
sudo bash ""

Please let me know if you run into any issues.

Technical Help / Re: Problem with FTP
« on: November 24, 2014, 06:37:27 pm »
I just tested the latest SVN dev version now that I have my virtual test machines back up and running.  I was unable to reproduce this issue.  However, if Ubuntu releases an update to the VSFTPD package, it will overwrite the patched version of VSFTPD that EHCP Force installed.  The patched version of VSFTPD EHCP uses includes fixes so that PAM integration and virtual FTP users work correctly.  I'm not sure why it's always broken in the official repository, but it is.  Blame Ubuntu.   >:(

In any event, if you encounter problems with vsftpd after downloading updates, please run the update script:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install subversion
cd ~/Downloads
if [ -e "" ]; then
    rm ""
svn export "svn://"
sudo bash ""

It is OK to run the update script multiple times (nothing will be lost), and the script will make sure you're always up-to-date.  The update script will always reinstall the patched version of vsftpd over the broken Ubuntu release.

If you want to prevent official vsftpd updates from affecting EHCP, first reinstall the patched version of vsftpd according to your Ubuntu version by referring to the knowledge article here:

Then run the following command to prevent official updates for the vsftpd package from coming in:

Code: [Select]
echo "vsftpd hold" | sudo dpkg --set-selections

I will add this by default to a future release since Ubuntu is too unpredictable when it comes to vsftpd updates.

What are the requirements of ideal software for the best performance of the EHCP Force?

Ubuntu server 12 or 14? 32 or 64 bits?

It should work on both.  I will look at the mod security issues you encountered as soon as I get my crashed computer back up and running.

What version of Ubuntu or linux are you using?  12.04?  64-bit or 32-bit?  I need to know.

Ubuntu 14.04 uses different mod security rules than 12.04.  The installer should handle installing the right ones automatically depending on your version.

In any event, go ahead and delete everything in:  /etc/apache2/mod_security_rules

Then, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo service apache2 restart

Technical Help / Re: PHPMyAdmin - Can't Login As root User
« on: November 10, 2014, 10:29:07 pm »
I updated my previous response with a command you can run to enable logging in as the root user in PHPMyAdmin.

It would be possible to add a really robust fail2ban configuration that already comes in the default installation of EHCP FORCE and also integrate DKIM configuration to postfix?

Hi, yes it should be possible, but could you please provide a sample log illustrating what a normal entry looks like for whatever you're trying to log and ban?

After doing the most recent update root password no longer works in phpmyadmin could you please lookin to fixing this as i have gone to zpanel for till this problem can be fixed

This is a new security feature to make it harder for your server to be hacked.  You need to whitelist your IP address by doing the following:

Code: [Select]
sudo -i
sed -i "s#^include_once 'rootip_whitelist_functions.php';#include_once '/usr/share/phpmyadmin/rootip_whitelist_functions.php';#g" "/etc/phpmyadmin/"
sed -i "s#^include 'rootip_whitelist.php';#include '/usr/share/phpmyadmin/rootip_whitelist.php';#g" "/etc/phpmyadmin/"
cd /usr/share/phpmyadmin/
nano rootip_whitelist.php

From the computer you are using to access PHPMyAdmin, browse to to get your IP address.  Write it down.

Now, while editing the rootip_whitelist.php file, find the line of:

Code: [Select]
// IP Addresses that are allowed to login via the root MySQL account through PHPMyAdmin
$allowedIPs = array("");

Add your IP address to the array.  It should look something like this:

Code: [Select]
// IP Addresses that are allowed to login via the root MySQL account through PHPMyAdmin
$allowedIPs = array("", "");

In the example above, the IP address of was used.  Replace that value with the one you found from

Save the file.  You can now login as the root user from that machine. 

In general, you should not login as the root user from an insecure connection.  The root mysql user account is very important to keep secure.

To DISABLE this Feature Completely and Allow root Logins via PHPMyAdmin:

If you want to allow the MySQL root user to login via PHPMyAdmin, simply run the following command:
Code: [Select]
sudo sh -c "echo \"<?php \\\$cfg['Servers'][1]['AllowRoot'] = TRUE?>\" >/usr/share/phpmyadmin/rootip_whitelist.php"

If you DO NOT want the root user to login using PHPMyAdmin from any IP address, simply clear the file by running this command:
Code: [Select]
sudo sh -c ">/usr/share/phpmyadmin/rootip_whitelist.php"

Updates and upgrades will not overwrite the rootip_whitelist.php file even if it's empty.

General / Need QA Testers

Hey Guys,

I'm adding some really cool, new features to EHCP Force Edition that I can't wait to share.  I've been testing these new features quite a bit, but I could really use some help.  While testing, I've also run into several other existing panel bugs that I hadn't noticed before.  I have fixed any errors that I personally have run into.  I'm also cleaning up the panel's UI.  There is a new highly customizable default theme that is coming to EHCP Force Edition soon.  It's really cool! 

But, I can't do everything myself, and it would be awesome if I could get anyone to volunteer to test and help me run QA operations.  Ideally, I would like to fix any problems that currently exist in the panel, from installation to functionality. 

If you run into a bug, please let me know how to reproduce it and how you think it should work.  This is a forked project.  Several bugs from the original code-base still exist.  If you think I'm aware of every possible little bug that exists, that couldn't be further from the truth.

I need everyone's help.  I want this panel to be a huge success, and I truly feel that this edition is better than the original.  The original is great, don't get me wrong, but EHCP Force Edition is the way it should work.  If anyone could leave feedback or reviews about this panel, that would also be extremely helpful.

Here's how you could help test EHCP:

  • Install VirtualBox
  • Create multiple virtual machines running different versions of Ubuntu (x86 and x64 editions).
  • Download the latest EHCP Force development code.
  • Install EHCP Force using the non-interactive mode when prompted during the initial installation phase.
  • Test features / see if everything works as expected.
  • Let me know about bugs, and I'll fix them!

Here's to hoping someone will be willing to help!

Yeah, a lot of bots and hackers try to probe your server every way possible. 

You can configure fail2ban to ban it.  Just setup a fail2ban filter.
