We are glad to announce that we have added SSL/TLS as well as SMTP AUTH support for Exim and Dovecot.
By default the self-signed certificate generated by Webuzo will be used to configure SSL/TLS but if you are using any 3rd party or Let’s Encrypt certificate for Webuzo panel then that certificate will be used.
We have also enabled SMTP AUTH by default so that all accounts must verify themselves with the mail server before sending any emails.
You can refer this guide to configure your email account with Thunderbird:
And refer this link to configure your email account with Outlook:
We will be adding more guides in the coming weeks for Web-based email clients like: WebMail Lite, RoundCube and RainLoop
The Next release of Webuzo i.e 2.7.1 will include a GUI manager to configure certificates for Email SSL/TLS.
Let me know if you have any questions in the comment section, I will try to answer as many as I can.

The Webuzo team has launched MySQL 5.7 the latest version in the 5.x series.
You can read about the new features added, deprecated and changed in MySQL 5.7 at the Official Website
Since MySQL 5.7 incorporates number of changes to the Database structure as well as the Password mechanism please consider the following points before installing:
- Currently, We are not providing upgrades to MySQL 5.7 from any version of MySQL, Percona or MariaDB.
- Only Fresh installation’s of MySQL 5.7 are allowed, so If you have an existing Database then you may not be able to install MySQL 5.7
- During the initial launch MySQL 5.7 will be available on Cent OS and gradually support will be rolled out on Ubuntu
- Since we are installing MySQL 5.7 from the Vendor’s repo itself, MySQL will update itself whenever the OS updates.
For existing user’s using MySQL 5.6 we will provide an upgrade mechanism in a future release, so stay tuned.
Let me know if you have any questions in the comment section.

This version of Python will not include the mod_wsgi module, due to restriction in the module compiling it before hand on our server is not possible.
If you require the module, please contact Support for further information.
We will be launching Python 3.x as a separate package very soon.
We have updated PHP 5.5, 5.6 and 7.0 with MySQLnd and have removed MySQL Client Library.
MySQL Native Driver is a replacement for the MySQL Client Library (libmysqlclient). MySQL Native Driver is part of the official PHP sources as of PHP 5.3.0. With MySQL Native Driver there is now an alternative, as the MySQL database extensions can be compiled to use MySQL Native Driver instead of the MySQL Client Library. MySQL Native Driver is written in C as a PHP extension.
We highly recommend that all users update their respective PHP version to this release.
