Auto IP Changer for VestaCP

Postby mingu2001 » Tue Aug 01, 2017 2:37 am

I made this little script that auto updates the server IP of VestaCP.
This script does not need any arguments, so it can be run on cron.
Also, this only works on configurations that have the the server IP as the public IP.

Disclaimer: I am not responsible for any damages done to your server using this program. Please use in your own risks. Also, backup before using this as this script may have bugs present.

First, do

Code: Select all

sudo -i
or login as ROOT on your server.

Second, do

Code: Select all

touch /usr/local/vesta/bin/v-update-ip
to create the file.

Third, do

Code: Select all

nano /usr/loca/vesta/bin/v-update-ip
and paste the code below.

Code: Select all

# info: updates server IP
# options: NONE
# The function updates the server IP
# Created by mingu2001


getUID=`/usr/bin/id -u`

if [ "$getUID" != 0 ]; then
        log "Attempted without ROOT Access. Halting operation!";
        exit 0

log() {
   echo -e "$1"
   echo -e "$1" >> $LOG

replaceIP() {
   sed -i -e "s/${oldIP}/${newIP}/g" $1

oldIP=$(ls /etc/nginx/conf.d/ | grep -oE '((1?[0-9][0-9]?|2[0-4][0-9]|25[0-5])\.){3}(1?[0-9][0-9]?|2[0-4][0-9]|25[0-5])')

log "Old IP: $oldIP"

newIP=$(curl -sL | grep -oE '((1?[0-9][0-9]?|2[0-4][0-9]|25[0-5])\.){3}(1?[0-9][0-9]?|2[0-4][0-9]|25[0-5])')

failsafeIP=$(curl -sL | grep -oE '((1?[0-9][0-9]?|2[0-4][0-9]|25[0-5])\.){3}(1?[0-9][0-9]?|2[0-4][0-9]|25[0-5])')

log "New IP: $newIP"

log "Failsafe IP: $failsafeIP"

if [ $failsafeIP != $newIP ]
   log "Results from servers differ. Halting operation!"
   exit 0

if [ $oldIP == $newIP ]
   log "No need to change IP!"
   exit 0

replaceIP /etc/nginx/conf.d/$oldIP.conf
mv -f /etc/nginx/conf.d/$oldIP.conf /etc/nginx/conf.d/$newIP.conf

replaceIP /etc/apache2/conf.d/$oldIP.conf
mv -f /etc/apache2/conf.d/$oldIP.conf /etc/apache2/conf.d/$newIP.conf

find /home/ -name "*.conf" -not -path "/home/timeshift/*" -print | xargs sed -i "s/${oldIP}/${newIP}/g"

for i in `ls /usr/local/vesta/data/users`
    replaceIP /usr/local/vesta/data/users/$i/web.conf
    replaceIP /usr/local/vesta/data/users/$i/dns.conf
   replaceIP /home/$i/conf/web/apache2.conf
    replaceIP /home/$i/conf/web/nginx.conf
    for j in `ls /usr/local/vesta/data/users/$i/dns/*.conf`
        replaceIP $j

    for j in `ls /home/$i/conf/dns/*.db`
      replaceIP $j


service nginx restart
service apache2 restart

log "Changed IP from $oldIP to $newIP"

Then press Ctrl+X to end, and press y to confirm.


Code: Select all

chmod +x /usr/local/vesta/bin/v-update-ip
to make the program executable.

Optionally, you can head over to your vesta panel to add a cron job running

Code: Select all

sudo /usr/local/vesta/bin/v-update-ip

Feel free to report any bugs, and DO BACKUP BEFORE USING! Thanks!
