API Gives a white page

Hello VestaCP

So I have started to work on VestaCP for my new service, using the API is a big part of this however when trying to add a user it only shows a white page, I have tried disabling the firewall (bad practice but on a test bench atm) and that did not fix the issue, I have tried a number of different things and yet nothing, I have copied the curl code from the vestaCP docs and that says it worked but did nothing (returns false so assumes correct), I have also tried inserting the http request directly and that only displays a white page ... g4=default

I was hoping you guys could give me insight into the possible cause, if this is firewall related how would I resolve it considering I did disable iptables and added my IP to the vestaCP firewall UI etc and yet still getting the same issue.

I will look forward to your reply, and hope you can help

With Regards
Chris Russell

I heard something about firewall, as I am developing on my local machine and our dev box is in Germany to "simulate" the production hardware, so I assumed it could be my IP being blocked, but adding that to be allowed by the firewall does not fix the issue.

I hope there is a simple fix soon

The index.php in the /api/ directory works off the the $_POST global variable, but adding some debug to the top of that file such as:


Shows that the POST variable is empty, even if a post is made. Somewhere in the configuration, the POST var is being stripped out...

FYI, php://input shows that the data is actually making it there....just the $_POST var is being stripped.

As of yet, not sure why.

I know, this has put a halt on our development as we need VestaCP's API to perform host specific tasks.

Wondering is there any quick work around or is it an easy fix?
