In addition to using SSH Keys to log into your servers, now you can also use traditional passwords in a secure way. We’ve also redesigned the operation log and released lots of minor UX/UI improvements.

Two years ago we launched Moss commercially. That was our first attempt to help web developers manage their servers and sites so that they could focus on their business and build great applications. Since then, we’ve been learning from our customers and evolving Moss in accordance.

Thanks to this continuous learning process and the effort of our team, now I’m proud to announce our new version of Moss. A major update that puts the focus on the unique features that set Moss apart: real-time visibility, security, and integration with 3rd-parties.

This is our major release up to date!

We’ve released a brand new web application built from scratch. Great design completely focused on improving usability, visibility, and debuggability. Now you can do more with less effort and in a more intuitive way, have real-time information about everything going on with your servers and sites, and have access to the logs of the operations Moss runs.

To achieve these objectives, we’ve rewritten a large extent of our backend. The number of changes is huge, so in this post we just summarize the most user-visible changes.

Optimize your WordPress websites with W3 Total Cache

Optimize your WordPress websites with W3 Total Cache

- - Articles

Website owners want their sites to run as fast as possible – and the well-known W3 Total Cache plugin (W3TC) is a popular option to optimize your WordPress installations. When W3TC is properly configured, it will help your server handle greater traffic loads without jeopardizing the response time of your website.

W3TC offers lots of functionality for free, while some premium features are unlocked when the user upgrades to their Pro plan. However, the plugin lacks some documentation and it’s not always easy to understand which features must be enabled and set up.

In the remainder of this article I’ll review the main caches you can set up with W3TC in order to optimize WordPress. You’ll see how they work and the main settings you can fine-tune. I’ll also point out at some alternative solutions you might explore in some – more advanced – use cases. Let’s start!

SITES

    • Fix: When Moss is monitoring a website and the corresponding domain name changes, Moss’s health-checks must be targeted at the new domain name.
    • Optimization: Don’t upload an SSH key onto a git provider (GitHub, GitLab, or Bitbucket) if such key already exists on the user’s account at the provider. This behavior existed before but a regression introduced this “bug”.
