Which is the best option right now?


#1

Hi again. Between the fact that no one can figure out how to simply SFTP into a simple install (a few threads on here, none conclusive) or change the domain (EEv4 - Domain Change - Best Way?) or add a domain to an install (Two domains site1.com and site2.com pointing to same php install my thread)… the fact that EE v3 has reached end of life, and that WordOps is as far as I understand not viable right now (https://github.com/WordOps/WordOps/issues)… what is the best path of action right now meaning in the next couple of days… to deploy a couple of production-ready installs?

Multiple domains pointing to the same install is required, ability to SFTP would be appreciated (as would be SSL support although not absolutely needed on the short term).

Thank you :slight_smile:

Hope this doesn’t come as too harsh, I appreciate the hard work of the developers @rahul286 to make this tool available. I have spent many hours in the last days trying to make the basic features of EE v4 work for me, and it doesn’t look it is going to work - but surely, I must be missing something simple and obvious? And if not, before I go this route, can someone tell me if installing the latest v3 - supported only up to Ubuntu 16.04 apparently (https://github.com/EasyEngine/easyengine/tree/master-v3) or 18.04 (https://github.com/EasyEngine/easyengine/releases/tag/v3.8.0 found somehow by browsing the releases) - is really the best solution, if that would even still work?

WordOps is still alive, they just released a fixed a few days ago https://github.com/WordOps/WordOps/commits/master

Good to see… thanks. I thought their installer was broken because of their domain name fiasco and we should wait for 3.9.5… Commit messages on the config and docs folders said “Almost there, don’t use this yet” a few hours ago.

So 3.9.3 is confirmed to work (Ubuntu 18.10) in spite of the main readme still saying 18.04?


#5

Do you really want/need 18.10? It’s not an LTS (long-term support) release, whereas 18.04 is. Just checking :slight_smile:


#6

Hi. I would just like to know if it works at all, on either. Some parts of their docs say 18.10 and some 18.04


#7

I ended up using Webinoly after spending too much time trying to get EE4 set up to my liking, and experiencing too many issues. Definitely one to consider if you feel EE4 and WordOps aren’t quite ready for production servers.

Thank you for this! I hadn’t heard of it.
