3. [Feature] Added Restore to New Server option while restoring the Backup of the VM.
Click here for more information.

4. [Feature] Added support to handle additional custom configuration file for nginx. Click here for more information.

5. [Feature] Added setting to disable DB backups on Slave servers. Now admin can disable the backup of Slave servers DB.
You can enable this setting from : Admin panel -> Configuration -> Slave Settings -> Under Database Settings section -> Disable database backup on slave servers

6. [Feature] Added link to the IPPool, if any IP is searched from Universal Search.

7. [Feature] Added support to specify Read/Write IOPS while creating Qemu VM(s) on Proxmox Virtualizor.

8. [Feature] Added Migration support for OpenVZ 7 VM(s) and CT(s).

9. [Feature] Added option in Advance section for Cloud users while creating / editing instances like Disable ebtable (Admin needs to enabling this option in master settings), CPU Mode and Enable RDP.

10. [Feature] Added setting in Admin Panel -> Master settings -> Under Cloud user setting section -> Allow disable ebtables. If enabled then cloud user will be able to disable ebtables while creating VMs.

11. [Feature] Added support for SCSI virtio which will enable Discard feature for thin provisioned storage. If enabled then fstrim will be used inside the VM, which will free up the space on the node. (Only available for KVM and only works for Thin provisioned storage)

12. [Feature] Added Setting to disable virt-sparsify, if enabled then Virtualizor will try to use this utility to freeup the space from Node. This will be done only when the VM will be stopped and started as this utility requires the VM to be sopped while using it on a VM disk.

13. [Feature] Added setting to limit the total IPs (IPv4, IPv6, IPv6 subnet, Internal IPs) while VM creation. Now Admin can limit the total number of IPs assigned to the VMs, this setting will restrict the VM creation from admin panel as well as cloud panel. E.g. if admin has set the value to 2 for all IPs, then admin / cloud user will not be able to assign more than 2 IPs to each VM. You can find this setting at Admin panel -> Configuration -> Master Setting -> Under IP settings section
You can find the documentation here
NOTE: If the setting is enabled and VPS Plan has more IPs then those Plans will not be shown to Cloud user as it is not valid as per the setting saved.

14. [Feature] Added setting for cloud user to enter their own domain name. This setting will enable registration with same user email under different cloud user. Click here for more information.

15. [Feature] Added Setting to calculate Bandwidth for Upload only, Download only or Both (Default). You can set it from Admin Panel -> Configuration -> Slave Settings -> Under Bandwidth Setting
Click here for more information.

16. [Feature] Added setting to set the server location as Country name, State Name and City Name. Click here for more information.
NOTE: Removed old setting which was using latitude and longitude for server location.

17. [Task] Now when control panel installation will be made, Virrtualizor will send an email with control panel login URL.

18. [Bugfix] On cloud user registration wizard, cloud user was not assigned with DNS plan even though the DNS plan is set in user plan. This is fixed.

19. [Bugfix] Webuzo premium applications were not displayed to the endusers if it were enabled from Webuzo setting. This is fixed.

20. [Bugfix] Visiting the Multi-virtualization page resulted to blank page. This is fixed.

21. [Bugfix] In enduser panel edit user wizard was throwing error when click on save button without making any changes. This is fixed.

22. [Bugfix] Syncing from Master to Slave was failing for large data (Like large number of IP(s) in IP Pool), this was causing a silent death of the script without any error during VM create / edit operation. This is fixed.

23. [Bugfix] While restoring the backup of Xen PV VM, Virtualizor was detecting the swap as data disk. This is fixed.

24. [Bugfix] RDNS request was not serviced if SOA records were not present for zone. This was happening because there was an option to delete the SOA records. Option to delete SOA record is now removed from Virtualizor version 3.0.3.0. This is fixed.

25. [Bugfix] When VM(s) were migrated to the destination server, at that time VNC password was not copied to the migrated VM and hence after starting the VM users were not bale to access VNC using the VNC details. This is fixed.

26. [Bugfix] If migration was failed due to any error, Virtualizor was not deleting the newly created entry of the VM and its disks. Now the entries will be removed and disks will be removed as well on failure of the migration task.

27. [Bugfix] While importing from the SolusVM, VM(s) were getting suspended due to the bandwidth overusage. This is fixed.

28. [Bugfix] Restore to new VPS was not working for Proxmox Qemu VM backups. This was happening for the backups which were taken before Virtualizor had support for bus drivers. Now restore to new VPS will consider sata driver if not found during restore process.

29. [Bugfix] On Task page Admins were not able to search Running Tasks. This is fixed.

30. [Bugfix] OStemplates were not getting downloaded from API calls made using SDK. This is fixed.

31. [Bugfix] While migrating VM, its primary IP was getting changed, which was causing an issue on some VPS which had control panel (eg cPanel and other control panels) installed. This is fixed.

32. [Bugfix] If only Internal IPs were assigned to VPS its gateway was not set. This is fixed.

33. [Bugfix] If VPS(s) was created with public and private IP, if public IP was removed from that VPS, at that time Virtualizor was not removing its eth0 config file from the VPS and hence that IP was still shown as assigned within that VPS. This is fixed.

34. [Bugfix] If compression was enabled in backup plans, Virtualizor was not compressing backups of file based VPS. This is fixed.

35. [Bugfix] From Launch Instance wizard in cloud panel, if negative values were passed for some fields Virtualizor did not handled them correctly. This is fixed.

36. [Bugfix] On OpenVZ 7 nodes, Virtualizor was not able to create CT if its disk’s name was not hdd0. This is fixed.

37. [Bugfix] Recipes were not getting executed while rebuilding the CT on OpenVZ 7 nodes. This is fixed.

Please let us know if you face any issues / have any suggestion. We are available on Virtualizor live chat at https://virtualizor.com/

If the directory exists but the installation files are not present it will be removed from Webuzo Records.

6) [Bug Fix] : After adding UTF-8 characters in Staging installation the characters were not displayed correctly after pushing the installation to live. This is fixed now.

7) [Bug Fix] : WordPress installations made in public_html directory (i.e. domain root) having Wordfence plugin installed had some files created in root WordPress directory which was not included in Backup and Clone. This is fixed now and these files will be included in Backup and Clone.
