v3.1.1536

Breaking Changes

  • CloudPanel technicians need to login with their own unique account instead of using shared accounts. A change was made to store sessions in the database to support web farms and putting CloudPanel behind a load balancer without persistence. Also for compliance reasons it is best practice for all technicians to use their own account
  • Updating the database is now a manual process to speed up the reload time when the application pool recycles. When you update CloudPanel be sure to go to the settings page (/admin/settings) from the server CloudPanel is installed on and update the database from the Database Updates tab. Do not try to do this AFTER trying to login. Be sure to do this from the server CloudPanel is installed on. If you are using host headers then you may need to remove the host headers in order to access this page.
