This document is for a previous release of cPanel & WHM. To view our latest documentation, visit our Home page.

For cPanel & WHM 11.44

Overview

The /var/cpanel/cpanel.config file stores all of the settings that are available in WHM's Tweak Settings interface (Home >> Server Configuration >> Tweak Settings). You can find more information about the requirements for each value in the Keys and default settings section below.

 

You can preconfigure your server's settings before you install cPanel & WHM. For instructions on how to preconfigure your server's settings before installation, read the Pre-Installation Options documentation.

Cached values

To improve overall performance, the settings in the /var/cpanel/cpanel.config file are cached in the cpanel.config.cache file. This file updates each time the /var/cpanel/cpanel.config file is updated, to ensure that the cached settings are up to date.

Configuration setting validation

The settings in the /var/cpanel/cpanel.config file are stored in key=value format. Each key=value pair is validated whenever you edit this file or change settings in the Tweak Settings interface.

If the validation process must replace or alter any key=value pairs, you will receive an email notification to inform you of the changes. You can change your email notification settings in WHM's Contact Manager  interface (Home >> Server Contacts >> Contact Manager).

Absent cpanel.config file

If the entire /var/cpanel/cpanel.config file is not present, your server will perform the following steps:

  1. The server will copy the contents of the /etc/cpanel.config default file and save it as the /var/cpanel/cpanel.config file. 
  2. The server will copy the contents of the cpanel.config.cache file, if it is present.
  3. For any dynamic values that are not set, the server will attempt to guess the correct value.
    • For example, to set the mailserver value, the server will check whether your system uses the dovecot or courier RPM.

Absent values

If one or more keys are not found in the /var/cpanel/cpanel.config file, the server will attempt to generate them from the following sources in the following order:

  1. The server will copy the the key=value pair from the cpanel.config.cache file, if it is present.
  2. If the key's value is static, and it was not found in the cpanel.config.cache file, the key=value pair will be copied from the default value in the /usr/local/cpanel/etc/cpanel.config file.
  3. If the key's value is dynamic, and it was not found in the cpanel.config.cache file, the server will calculate an appropriate value.

Invalid values

If one or more of the following values are invalid in the /var/cpanel/cpanel.config file, the server will attempt to replace them with a valid value:

  • mysql-version
  • local_nameserver_type
  • mailserver
  • ftpserver

These variables are deprecated, and we will remove them in a later version of cPanel & WHM. If you use them in custom code, update that code to use the rpm.versions system as soon as possible to avoid problems.

For more information, read our How to Override the rpm.versions System documentation.


Keys and default settings

The following table lists the keys that are stored in the /var/cpanel/cpanel.config file, their Tweak Settings labels, default values, and validation requirements.

Notes:

  • You can find the current cPanel-supplied default values for these keys in the /usr/local/cpanel/etc/cpanel.config file.
  • Keys that do not have an associated Tweak Settings tab and label can only be edited in the /var/cpanel/cpanel.config file.
