  1. SSH On Off Button

    A simple button to turn ssh on and off, ssh can be turned off until the admin needs to use it so it adds an additional level of security straight on the dashboard. Thanks

            • Add tutorial for Mac

              Add documentation for Mac. Your tutorial is for Windows. E.g., Putty is not needed in Mac (I had to ask someone more advanced than me to let me know about that, because how was I supposed to know)?

                  • Buddypress plugin

                    Hi,

                    I use in two of my wordpress based site, a plugin called buddypress. A community plugin. But I'm having troubles, it seams that varnish doesn't go well with buddypress. The bigger problem is that my connection and wait time increases as I must disable varnish for that app. I would be great if it were another software like varnish that doesn't conflicts with buddypress, that you could enable instead. My connection time is right know about 3-4 seconds. But is way to much.

                    I hope you can find a solution to this problem.

                    All the best,
                    Felipe Chamorro

                      Removing/replacing varnish is not really an option, as it is the cornerstone of our hosting and the reason (as you mention) of site(s) speed/performance.

                      If you provide an example of how we can reproduce what is not working, we can check if there is a fix that we can implement across the platform.

                    • Single codebase Drupal?

                      The idea is simple and yet pretty complicated... The multiple Drupal apps hosted from _single_ codebase. This is similar to Aegir approach - one "platform", multple "sites".
                      Pros:
                      -APC is caching the same files
                      -Less storage space, CPU, memory, IO needed
                      -Less management
                      Cons:
                      -Totally new approach, probably needs entire logic change, inserting "platform" between server and app

                        • Better app submission

                          The process should be:

                          1 - Type of the app (Wordpress, Prestashop...)
                          2 - Name of the app (My Application)
                          3 - Primary Domain (myappdomain.com)
                          4 - SSH Key (Yes[] - No[] and if yes "Paste you SSH Key)

                          Actually these steps means 3 app restarts and 5 minutes, with all these steps at the app creation time it would take no more than 1mn.

                          • Deny all, permit only from my country

                            I would like to have the capability to permit connections to my website only from my country. The site is on our local language and there is little to no reason to permit connections from other places (aside from Google robots).

                            • Enable SSLSessionCache

                              This configures the storage type of the global/inter-process SSL Session Cache. This cache is an optional facility which speeds up parallel request processing. For requests to the same server process (via HTTP keep-alive), OpenSSL already caches the SSL session information locally. But because modern clients request inlined images and other data via parallel requests (usually up to four parallel requests are common) those requests are served by different pre-forked server processes. Here an inter-process cache helps to avoid unnecessary session handshakes.

                              Ex.: SSLSessionCache shm:/usr/local/apache/logs/ssl_gcache_data(32000)

                              https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mod_ssl.html#sslsessioncache

                              Or via Memcached (but this requires Apache v2.4) :
                              https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/en/mod/mod_socache_memcache.html

                                  I was not completely satisfied with the performance of Easy Digital Downloads plugin on standard WordPress install. I would like to see in the future optimized for digital content distribution (superfast and Varnish compatible) managed Easy Digital Downloads (EDD) Cloud Hosting from Cloudways.
