Simplified management

Scopes take the guesswork out of managing a server by reducing complex tasks to simple two word verbs.



Become a pro in no time

Scopes eliminate convoluted documentation or worse yet – unsafe documentation – with simple, guided management. Want to change your SSH port? cpcmd scope:set system.sshd-port 54 or easier yet, use the GUI.

What about disabling the panel frontend to decrease exposed surface and improve security? cpcmd scope:set cp.headless true or easier yet, use the GUI.

Enable remote connections? There's a Scope for that! cpcmd scope:set mysql.remote-access true, or easier yet... you guessed it!

Protip There's even a Scope to set SMTP smart host.

Scopes are vetted by ApisCP, checking for potential configuration conflicts such as incorrect type, authentication, port availability, and coherence. Once it receives the go-ahead, it's woven back into Bootstrapper's logic. Scopes acknowledge consistency checks, automatically correcting configuration when a deviation is discovered.


Scope anatomy

Take cp.headless as a simple example. When enabled the following operations happen in a single transaction:

  • Asserts input is boolean
  • Updates panel configuration, marking headless = true
  • Restarts ApisCP
  • Applies firewall rules removing access to 2083 and 2082
    • 2078 is also deauthorized if DAV support was enabled
  • Reloads firewalld, thereby activating rules
  • Disables Argos profile for ApisCP frontend
  • Restarts internal monitoring service
  • Dispatches email summarizing changes

Scopes aren't just a game changer, but a necessary evolution in server management.
