Amazon CloudFront Wildcard Cache Delete

The Amazon CloudFront wildcard cache invalidation is supported at last.

For a long time this was not available and was a much requested feature, even forcing users to head over to different content delivery network providers. At least for me.

This is great news and will certainly make CDN management via Amazon CloudFront so much easier.

Install WHMCS in CakePHP (Invalid Token)

Installing WHMCS into CakePHP may give you an “Invalid Token” error as you try to perform tasks in the admin dashboard.

You may search online and find several discussions regarding PHP sessions which is true but not entirely. Some suggest changing the session’s name with PHP session_name('WHMCS'); in the configuration.php file. The real problem is with the rewrite base caused by CakePHP’s parent .htaccess file in the root.

cPanel: The SSL certificate will expire in less than 30 days

If you have a WHM installation, you may receive several emails (one for each service) from your WHM installation regarding expiring SSL certificates.

The subject of the email may state:

The SSL certificate for cpanel on xxx will expire in less than 30 days

And the message may state something like:

Your server’s SSL certificate for cpanel will expire in less than 30 days. You need to install a new certificate as soon as possible. You can install a new certificate using WHM’s “Manage Service SSL Certificates” interface: https://xxx:2087/scripts2/manageservicecrts (Main >> Service Configuration >> Manage Service SSL Certificates).

The services that use valid SSL or even self-signed certificates include the FTP server, IMAP server (Dovecot by default), SMTP server (Exim by default) and then the cPanel/WHM/Webmail interfaces themselves. So 4 emails in total.

If you are using an actual, valid SSL certificate, you will have to renew it through your SSL certificate provider in order to take care of this.

In most cases though, the SSL certificates are self-signed through cPanel/WHM themselves so you can go to WHM > Service Configuration > Manage SSL certificates and click “Reset Certificate” for each of the 4 services and cPanel will automatically generate a new, self-signed certificate for you.

All set and done!
