InterWorx Control Panel a web hosting control panel.
Of all 3 control panels, this probably the worst candidate to move to. Reasons are:
- System scripts are all encoded PHP scripts. This is absolutely insane.
- The UI is terrible. There are some pros to DirectAdmin's new vue.js UI but everything just looks dated. Mandatory fields on forms are janky and forms are glitchy.
No catch-all mail address featureIt's a plugin you need to enable. No system backups?Hidden at nodeworx/settings, under 'SiteWorx Backups'. Can only do daily, weekly, or monthly. No ability to select certain dates or location.
- No way to recompile Apache/PHP. Everything uses their pre-compiled iworxphp-* packages. Consequently, no way to add/remove PHP extensions.
- NodeWorx 'update' buttons actually trigger system updates/package installs. Why didn't they do the sensible thing and actually show you what it's doing rather than a spinny greyed out button.
- Let's Encrypt plugin is disabled by default
Firewall settings are primitive.but sufficient
- No way to limit emails sent per account
- djbdns only. No bind?
- PHP versions are per-account settings. Cannot mass-enable 7.2 and 7.3 for all users, for example.
Some nice features that do exist:
Import accounts from cPanel (not tested)cPanel imports are broken.
- PHPMyAdmin/Webmail runs from the iworx control panel web server similar to cPanel and unlike DirectAdmin.
- Can edit certain service options (SSH, FTP, NFS(though, why??), MySQL )
- Can manage yum repos (though, again, why?)
- Can manage remote MySQL servers
- Users *can* make their own backup schedule and that supports SCP/FTP. Limited to monthly or weekly schedule.
Installation[edit | edit source]
On a clean install of CentOS, run:
# sh <((curl -sL interworx.com/inst.sh)) ## or automated # sh <((curl -sL interworx.com/inst.sh)) -l
The script will take care of all dependencies and will prompt for confirmation unless given the
After the setup is complete, activate InterWorx via browser at
https://:2443/nodeworx or CLI
The install script will install the necessary dependencies, then add the InterWorx repository, before installing
interworx interworx-smarty interworx-squirrelmail interworx-roundcube interworx-phpmyadmin interworx-horde packages. No compiling is needed which makes the install process super fast (~10 minutes on a low-end VPS).
Hmmm[edit | edit source]
InterWorx appears to be written in all PHP. Their
/home/interworx/bin directory is all IonCube encoded PHP scripts. All their cronjobs just trigger encoded PHP scripts.
