Everything should be done via EE?


since i am rookie, i managed all complicated nginx and wordpress installations via EE, and installed multiple different WP in one server.

What i want to know is post EE period. :slight_smile: What i want to know is can i use standard commands? can i change the config files? or should i do it via EE?

Hi @auludag

Yes you can use the standard commands and also change configuration files as long as your changes are correct, but its recommended to use EE as it maintains logs for actions taken by EE . If something goes wrong you can track down what went wrong and where .


thanks for answer. is every rule defined in EE? for example: let’s say i will move my server. got a snapshot. i restored the snapshot. how can EE work in this scenario? is there a command for that?

Hi @auludag

Currently EasyEngine doesn’t includes anything to handle snapshots.

Can you tell what is the use-case that you want EasyEngine to accommodate to?

when i run ee update no packages are updated. so should i update them or should i wait for EasyEngine could have some incompabilities? idk

I always run the following sequence of commands:

ee update
ee stack upgrade --all
apt-get upgrade

Not all packages are handled by EE repos, AFAICT, and can be updated via ordinary apt-get.

If I’m wrong, someone please enlighten me.

thank you for your reply, janiosarmento. then we will wait someone to enlighten us from RTCamp team.

Hello @auludag

ee update does not upgrade any stack packages. It upgrades only EasyEngine binary codes.

To upgrade stack packages, you can follow the process given by @janiosarmento .

For more details, also refer https://easyengine.io/docs/commands/stack/#upgrade

cool. thanks for answering @Prabuddha
