    Awesome Job by Jonathan K. W. in Support

    I just wanted to mention that Jonathan K. W. did an awesome job on a support ticket for me today. After updating to WHM 58, and EasyApache 4, things didn't convert from EA3 very well (Opcache didn't enable, DSO handler didn't install, MySQLi module was not installed, so WordPress pooped out on...

    Engintron (Nginx on cPanel)

    I had been using NginxCP for a reverse proxy with Nginx. It worked pretty well, with a few 502's here and there. It was not maintained in a very timely manner. Then came Centos 7.x, and NginxCP was not fully compatible. In my search for an alternative, I found Engintron. I have to say - WOW...

    Memcached with OPcache

    Hello. Two days ago, I had a client sign up for the SSD-1 VPS plan. I was surprised to see that the VPS was created with Apache 2.4.12 (vs 2.2), mySQL 5.6.22 (vs 5.5), and PHP 5.5.21 (vs 5.4). Apparently KH is moving forward with the latest and greatest as a standard, which is great! Another...

    ModSecurity apparently adds an additional layer of security. But I have been reading that it is difficult to administer, and that it may cause accidental blocks or block search engine bots unintentionally? Is there a way to implement ModSecurity in a way that will not cause unintended issues...

    Root User Password Disabling

    Hello. I have read that a good security measure is to disable password login for the root user. If this is done, then I take it that it would have to be enabled again, each time KnownHost was asked to get involved via support ticket? How hard is it to disable and enable? And how is it done...
