  • thanks for the comment buddy, reply me when you get the ticket. I've more than 120 Static Site, 30+ Laravel Project over there..!! M used to with CLI but web panel also necessary...!!

    • I have follow my instruction from support ticket crew, but didn't solve anything, so I'm installing zeslecp but cant open port 2087, when I open another ticket support crew don't answer me, after saw this forum post, I think it's massive DDOS attack you need to back up your data and create native apache or nginx immediately if want run your website, this problem will take a long time .-. I'm so sad honestly, just try using email with vestacp but happen to be like this :(
      https://forum.vestacp.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=16556&hilit=ddos

Why don't you read your email / tickets?

Due to a vulnerability in VestaCP we've blocked port 8083 in hopes that this might protect you from having your server compromised and shut down completely. Droplets that were compromised were sending out DOS attacks and that required them to be taken down to keep the network online.

Using an alternate port will get you around that block, but please make sure your VestaCP is up to date. To make sure it's up to date:

Ubuntu/Debian:
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y

CentOS:
yum update -y

This one-liner will change the port from 8083 to 5600, when run via SSH or console:

sed -i 's/8083;/5600;/' /usr/local/vesta/nginx/conf/nginx.conf && v-add-firewall-rule ACCEPT 0.0.0.0/0 5600 TCP && service vesta restart

Thanks anthonyrossbach for drafting up that one-liner :)
