File Manager interface can now be used to delete files when the account’s disk space is full. Previously, when the account had no disk space, you could not access this interface as you got “suspended” for over usage.

EasyApache 4’s version of OpenSSL is upgraded to version 1.1.1. This enables the use of Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol version 1.3. We will soon enable the use of TLS 1.3 for all clients that wants this. News will be posted regarding this.

The ability for the cpcalendars and cpcontacts service subdomains to get SSL certificates via AutoSSL is now added. This change allows users to connect to the domains via HTTPS for calendar and contact information. With the SSL certificate, users will not encounter a certificate domain mismatch anymore.

The AutoSSL feature’s automatic creation of CAA records now recognizes subdomains, as well as wildcard domains. Also, this feature now creates all the CAA records it needs to ensure that it will issue certificates.

AutoSSL now verifies Certificate Authority Authorization (CAA) records and a domain’s DNS configuration at the same time. This change will help improve AutoSSL’s execution time.

Support for use of reverse DNS entry for the mail HELO/EHLO if available has been added. When you enable this setting, Exim uses the sending IP address’s reverse DNS name as the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) HELO. This will help improve email deliverability for servers with a properly-configured PTR record.

This version is live on our servers and any feature listed here can be used at this moment.

cPanel version 82
Written by: Simon A. Skaar

Less new features than earlier versions but still important

Apache Solr upgrade

The Apache Solr has been upgraded from version 6 to 8, this will result in a lot faster indexing and search both in webmail and applications as Outlook or the mail app on your phone.

SSL/TLS status for your main domain

Under the “General Information” at the main page of cPanel, you can now see if you have a valid certificate and which type it is (DV or EV also displays, see here what an EV-certificate is).

A valid certificate should look like this.

cPanel / WHM performance updates

Different changes for faster maintenance, shorter reboots and updates will result in even less downtime for our clients.
