cPanelProxy No Longer Needed?


Recently I installed a new server with the latest cPanel release (cPanel 11.23.3-R25623) on Centos 5 64bit version. I notice that under “Tweak Setting” menu on WHM, there are new features that interesting :

Add proxy VirtualHost to httpd.conf to automatically redirect unconfigured cpanel, webmail, webdisk and whm subdomains to the correct port (requires mod_rewrite and mod_proxy)

Automatically create cpanel, webmail, webdisk and whm proxy subdomain DNS entries for new accounts. When this is initially enabled it will add appropriate proxy subdomain DNS entries to all existing accounts. (Use /scripts/proxydomains to reconfigure the DNS entries manually)

When I give a try on those feature, it did work. cPanel become accessible through common http port (80) (instead of port 2082) when we access http://cpanel.domainname.tld. It also work for webmail, WHM, and webdisk.

Meaning we probably dont need a cPanelProxy anymore.

  1. This is very interesting. It looks like I finally convinced the cPanel Proxy authors that there is a solution to the problem.

    While I doubt that they use any of my code (which was more “proof of concept” than an actual product), I did proof that not only is it possible, it’s simple.

    (I am the author of cPanel Proxy.)

    Your cPanelProxy has been very userful for me. Thank you very much for your contribution!
    cPanel uses mod_proxy and mod_rewrite, a big differences from your solution. But still, you’re the first to figure it out

    I just tried the same setting, but when i try to open webmail subdomain, i see the apache home page rather than webmail interface. What did i do wrong ?
