    Is nginx included in this release? What is the version of Apache?

    Thank you!


    • #3
      Hi dss,

      I installed this beta on my vps.

      I could not find nginx. Apache is 2.2.

      I reverted my snapshot because phpmyadmin is not loading.

      Hope this helps.

      Kind regards,

          Roundcube 1.0.3 was released: 29 September 2014
          Now is 8 months later and actual version is 1.1.1 with some security updates.

          It looks like your update cycle is very very very long. Before you release Interworx update with 3rd party applications, it is OLD! Hmmm.

            It's due to the way InterWorx 5.0 was designed for (old PHP versions), the 5.1 will allow them to upgrade everything to the latest version for PHP5.4+

              I have just seen 5.1 has hit release candidate.

              I will be updating our test server when it appears

              Many thanks

                I have installed the upgrade to v5.1, but the install screen showed some failures, as an example, roundcube, but strangely, it shows as installed, and when accessing webmail roundcube, shows as 1.0.3.

                Please could I ask if anyone does see dns in plugin section and where do you find the input for configuration of SSLciphersuite and SSL protocols

                I'll spend more time looking through v5.1 over the weekend.


                • #9

                  I'm sorry, I have found these 2, the dns package is shown when you add or edit a siteworx account, which is used to resolve IP address to readable format and the SSL ciphers are configurable from nodeworx, server, SSL Certs

                  Also, myphpadmin works lovely

                  Many thanks

                    Hi John,

                    I've updated again, also no problem with phpmyadmin.

                    However, I'm wondering about Apache 2.4. Beginning 2012 I found this post ( In this release candidate I could not find anything about Apache 2.4. Anyone know the status for this?

                      Hi Raymond

                      Many thanks

                      Ngix I thought was going into 5.1, but I guess iw maybe rolling it out, as the MySQL was also missing, perconna and the other which I cannot think of its name sorry

                      It would be lovely to know

                      Also, I think I'm wrong over DNS plugin, rereading above does state found in plugin section.

                      Many thanks

                        I'm trying to find the "configurable SSLCipherSuite and SSLProtocol options". Is it in the control panel somewhere? Or ...?

                          Hi xmmedia

                          If your iw version is 5.1, you will find these setting in nodeworx, server, ssl

                          If your running iw v5, then you will have to ssh into server and change, but the locations or files depend upon if your wanting to change Apache or email

                          Iw v5.1 is currently release candidate, but hopefully will not be long before going release

                          If your only a siteworx user, then you will need to contact your host provider

                          I hope that helps

                          Many thanks

                            If the value is changed, does it remove all the values in the existing siteworx vhost config files? In other words, how does it deal with the settings on existing siteworx accounts?


                            • #15
                              Hi xmmedia

                              It does not change retrospectively

                              This you would need to amend manually, however, once you have set the ssl ciphers for vhost, it would use them going forward with all new vhosts.

                              As I don't know which version your using, I'll assume iw v5, and therefore you can hook this change for cipher easily, just look up my sticky post on the forum

                              Many thanks
