Some scripts like WordPress and Joomla can leave a big error_log files that no one will ever look at. Try opening a 30mb log file with Word and see what happens. In most cases you can just remove this file with a simple command.
To remove all error_log files for CPanel accounts that are live use:
find /home/ -type f -name error_log -delete
To remove all error_log files from backups use:
find /backup/ -type f -name error_log -delete
This will take a while to complete because it will look through every file, it also runs pretty smooth so just sit back and let it work it’s magic.
Changing a server to a new IP is a nightmare, there is so many places that need to update. If possible always just set up a new server and transfer everything to it. If that’s too hard than here is how to do the migration the best possible way.
- Edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
Change the IPADDR and GATEWAY lines to match the new IP and Gateway for the new ip
- Edit /etc/sysconfig/network
Change the GATEWAY line here if it does not exist in the ifcfg-* file.
- Edit /etc/ips
Remove the new primary IP from this file if it is present
Add the old primary IP to this file
- Edit /var/cpanel/mainip
Replace the old primary IP with the new primary IP
- Edit /etc/hosts
Replace the old primary IP with the new one if needed. The hostname’s dns will need to be updated too
- Restart the network service to make the new IP the primary: service network restart
(Note: You’re probably going to be disconnected at this point, and have to log in to ssh using the new primary ip.)
- Restart the ipaliases script to bring up the additional IPs: service ipaliases restart
- Run ifconfig and make sure all IPs show up correctly
- Update the cpanel license to the new primary IP
- Then run /usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt to update the CPanel license
- Then run the migration Wizard inside CPanel to update Apache and the website settings.
In a perfect world that will do it.
It’s three steps:
sh cldeploy -i
Here is how to flush the database for Cphulk from the command line. You can’t whitelist IPs this way but running this command will flush all blocks and get you into the WHM (WebHostManager) to whitelist your IP. You will need root access to do this.
echo "delete from brutes; delete from logins;" | mysql cphulkd
