Should I follow typical Ubuntu setup guides?


#1

I’m setting up an Ubuntu 14.04 server and will be using EE to manage the WP and php /MySQL sites on the server. My question is should I go through the typical setup for an Ubuntu server that you find around the web and create a sudo user and configure the UWF firewall, or does EasyEngine just take care of everything.


#2

EE does not take care of firewall, login failure daemons, or anything.

You must take care of it by yourself (at least for now).


#3

Current EasyEngine does not take care of setting up UFW, fail2ban, etc. but Its already on our roadmap.


#4

That sounds great.

However, it would be nice if there will be an option to enable/disable those functions/services, since some of us are using custom config/application for security.

Hi @rdlynch

I hope your query is resolved. I am closing this support topic for now.

Feel free to create a new support topic if you have any queries further. :slight_smile:
