Kloxo is a free open-source control panel for web hosting, it has lots of advanced features and more user friendly than most of free open-source control panels.
in this article i will choose “Kloxo MR” an amazing Kloxo remake, remaked with lots of another features that does not exist in the original Kloxo like Nginx support, theme fixes, improvements, currently Kloxo MRstable version is 6.5, but beta (under development) version is on Github, and it has more features than 6.5, but i will choose 6.5 now, (because it is stable at the moment), and i will use the “default theme”, follow steps below to switch to default, (click on blue text!)!
you can call “Auxiliary Logins” as “backup accounts” where you can get all your account permission to some backup account (you can configure it’s password), and it can login normally in CP’s login page but with “.aux” suffix.
is very important, you can add your domain using it, you just have to type domain name, then you have to choose document root (you can just type domain again), then configure some settings and then finished (remember to point your domain to your host’s NS).
you can put your personal info in “Details” it is important for some hosts to check if you are real user not scammer, and also to help your hosting provider to get in touch with you if there are any problems.
this option will add parked domain (another domain point to the same domain files) like i have “khudher.com” and my parked domain was “Kblog.me” so i add kblog.me as parked domain, and it will have same data as khudher.com) and redirected domain will only redirect to the domain.
this will list PHP log, it is perfect if you had problems with some php scripts, so you can define the error and later solve it, and also it shows only last 20 line, but you can download the php log list.
this have option for “remove processed logs” so this will delete logs exceeded 50mb instead of moving it to your account (use this option only if you have lots of visitors and also low disk space in your account).
this will give you option to enable index to your directories, this is useful if you want to share some folder to some people, so it will list all files inside that folder, but disabled index will give “403 Forbidden” error.
this is online file manager for your domain files, it has (new, delete, download, and also extract) and also there is option to download file, and download from url without download and re-upload again.
Mail Auth will help you enable SPF records (validate that you are the domain owner), this will prevent messages from going to spam, and to protect your email from being stole (like someone send from your email!).
Webmail is you mail site (you can login with mail account name and password).
here you can manage your kloxo cp appearance like skin, icons…etc
Kloxo and Kloxo-MR are the best free Control Panels, it can beat some paid control panels like direct admin!
it has lots of advanced features, and setting that will impress you! (options not even in cPanel!).
