SECURITY ADVISORY!!!! The 3rd party plugin “Apache Booster” has been determined to be very insecure and should be removed from any server running this. As such we have disabled the ability to install this plugin and left only the removal option which we urge all users of Apache Booster to use for security reasons.
Fixed missing text on a bunch of pages
Updated mysql performance aka mysqltuner to version 1.3.0
Fixed mysql watch installer and added check for DBD::mysql which is required for the daemon to run. You may need to remove and reinstall if you have issues with the daemon not starting.Fixed clean backups installer
Updated Security >> Files/Folders >> User Error Logs to show log sizes on main report window for quicker checking on whether the logs need to be deleted due to being large.
Updated multitail to version 6.2.1 (remove and reinstall to upgrade)
Improved Repairs >> Misc Fixes >> Clean tmp to add an option for selecting files/folders individually for deletion rather than the normal delete all that clean tmp usually uses.
Improved Misc >> Space >> True Space to allow more detailed scans of single and multiple accounts with a report that is saved for later viewing. Helpful for finding large user files or figuring out where all their space is being used.
Added Repairs >> User Fixes >> Large File Search for fairly quick scans of home or home2 in order to find out which users might have larger than normal files eating up space (eg logs, multiple old backups etc).
Added Security >> Rootkit Hunters >> SSH Rootkit Test to do simple quick tests of commonly exploited binaries like ssh and KeyUtils libraries as well as test for the illegal -G option and an additional test to scan for possibly infected SUID binaries.
New feature: By user request we’ve added Security >> Files/Folders >> User Error Logs
This feature will find error logs taking up space on users accounts and create a report with the size of the error logs so you can determine if they need to be removed or not. Feature can also find and remove them for you and of course the option to scan multiple users is there as well as scanning and scanning/fixing per account.
Added (again by user request) Portuguese/Brazilian language support (language can be set from the settings menu, more languages coming soon in addition to English, French and the above.
Minor update to replace some missing text from a few pages and prepare for the addition of more languages and features coming shortly.
Fixed missing menu items
Overhauled the entire language system
Updated French and English translations. Note if you have any errors just switch your language to another and then switch back
Added precoding for more languages being released soon
For mobile users and people with small screens that have trouble with our normal menu’s we’ve made the menu titles clickable and each will take you to a page with a full listing of links to all features on that menu.
Been awhile but we’ve been hard at work. WHMXtra version 6.0 includes a major UI overhaul and changes to how most features are used and operate, both to make it look nicer and also for ease of use.
Please note this version removes our custom coding for ioncube, please ensure you are running cpanel version 11.42 prior to upgrading. If you experience any ioncube issues after the upgrade simply go to WHM >> Tweak Settings and search for Ioncube. Turn it off then back on again, there should be no further issues with the loaders after this as cpanel finally updated to a newer loader compatible with 3rd party programs.
Lots of changes, too many to list but will put the important stuff below.
New Feature: Repairs >> Server >> Ram Reset: Free up memory by dumping non essential items from ram without a reboot!
