Add/Modify the admin email address in CWP

CentOS WebPanel doesn’t set an admin email at the installation time. So you will need set the admin/root email after the installation is complete. When logging in CWP you will see a warning message: WARNING! Your root Email address for notifications isn’t set.. 

To set up/modify the admin/root email:

  1. Go to yourdomain.com:2087 and log in as root
  2. Navigate to CWP Settings->Edit Settings
  3. Look for the Admin Email field and enter the desired email address. It’s also a good idea to check the option Forward server system emails.
  4. Click the Save Changes button.
  5. You will see a notification message: Data Updated. Also, if you enabled the forwarning option, another message will be: root forwarder file detected, all root emails are forwarded to: email@domain.com 

cwp admin password

 

If you prefer, you can set/edit the root email address by editing the file /usr/local/apache/conf/sharedip.conf
