We are looking for a NGINX Helper Plugin substitute.

  • Multisite support.
  • Purge cache when new post is published, etc.
Any recommendation?
by Talented
Please introduce separate FastCGI cache keys_zone for each WordPress sites. Then we can use Till Kruss Nginx cache purge plugin.
by Expert
Can you elaborate a little bit more?

Why do we need separate FastCGI Cache keys to use this plugin?

What is the advantage of having separate keys?

Is this plugin Multisite compatible?

What can you tell about the purge-cache method of this plugin?

In general, why do you think this plugin is better than Nginx-Helper?

Actually, I meant this type of configuration. Separate cache key with a separate cache directory for each website. In Till Kruss Nginx cache purge plugin, we can manually add each website Cache Zone Path. Therefore, there's no any issue. I have tested this type of configuration. 

fastcgi_cache_path /var/run/nginx/cache/site1 levels=1:2 keys_zone=SITE1:100m inactive=1w;
fastcgi_cache_path /var/run/nginx/cache/site2 levels=1:2 keys_zone=SITE2:100m inactive=1w;
by Expert
Yes, I understand how to do that, but it is not clear to me what's the advantage of using this plugin?

Why do you think it's better than Nginx-Helper?
by Talented

Because Till Kruss Nginx cache purge plugin is more reliable. It directly wipe the cache directory. Nginx helper plugin no longer working. If there's no any close substitute, this is the best alternative.

Your opinion is very valuable to improve Webinoly!

Tell us both:

  • What you like the most about Webinoly.
  • What's the most annoying thing in Webinoly.
by Talented

I came from EasyEngine, which is also a great product and I was satisfied with it. The problem with it, though, was that it seemed stuck, almost abandoned, so I started looking for alternatives and Webinoly caught my attention. What I like the most about it:

  • The responsiveness of its creator. Both times that I asked for support, I received a response in less than half an hour, which is too fast even for a paid service.
  • The fact that it is actively maintained, with a specific planning for the updates, which seems to be consistent, with no delays.
  • The ease of use. You open up a droplet and with copy-pasting of two commands you have an optimized server and a running site.
  • The simplicity. Contrary to EasyEngine's docker containers, which complicate things, Webinoly is more straightforward and I feel more confident that I will be able to deal with an issue if something breaks.
As for "What's the most annoying thing in Webinoly", there is none.
There are a few topics that I would be interested to discuss, but they are not "annoyances" or problems in any way.
The most important one has to do with site isolation. Despite it's drawbacks, docker on EasyEngine managed to keep sites more isolated, so that if something went wrong on a site (e.g. a security incident) it would be harder to affect the rest of server's sites. I've read the related discussion on github and I know that this isn't something that will change, at least not in the immediate future, and I am OK with that.
Another thing that might need considering is whether it would make sense to take advantage of wp-cli for certain tasks, mostly when creating a new WordPress site (it would allow to easily add a few extra options on installation) or even for database backup and site cloning (exporting and importing the database and then search & replace the old domain with the new one should be much easier and trouble-free with wp-cli).

1.) I like the most the fact that it just works out-of-the-box! I also like its simplicity.

2.) I think that all webinoly commands should start with webinoly  keyword, for example:

sudo webinoly site example.com --options


sudo webinoly log ....


sudo webinoly stack ...

Because without it it 's sometimes confusing and can interfere/be mistaken with other commands/apps that you have on your server. But maybe it's just me. :)

Sounds good but instead of "webinoly" change it to "wo" for shorter and easier to remember.
1, Straight forward, easy to use.

2, Not using Open Litespeed, no isolation web by using different system user.

I've used EasyEngine and Centminmod but to be honest EE was good but using docker made me feel a bit scared if something goes wrong. Centminmod was to complicated to use and its documentation was confusing. Webinoly is so much easier than anything I've ever used and it just works. The documentation is awesome, simple and easy to read and understand.

I have a really small company and I provide manage cloud hosting for my clients. Using webinoly I feel confident that the security is good and that performance is amazing. I have a few 1gb servers hosting 6 to 8 sites each and I can do this with webinoly.

I really don't "hate" anything about webinoly. But I do feel that the commands should be namespaced. Something like "weby [subcmd] [options]" maybe would be good to avoid confusions.

The best things about webinoly are:

  1. Performance
  2. Security
  3. Ease of use
  4. Support
  5. It's active and maintained
by Talented
I would just like to add one thing to the five above...

6. Everything is done correctly, logically, with pride and very little ego (except for the silly name), so the result is software that solves problems but doesn't create them, which ~ in this world ~ is as good as it gets.
by Rookie
I loved this project it is stable and easy to use. QRokes is great at answering questions and that is a plus.

The only thing I still have problems with is the SSL certificates not auto-renewing. Besides that much prefer Webinoly to Centminmod. I even switched my server from CentOS to Ubuntu in order to use Webinoly :-)
I like the out of the box functionality, just works and it's light. Perfect for me.

As a recent new user, I would like to be able to have some kind of included PHP.INI that isn't overwritten at reset / reload. Not a huge issue, but something that would be nice.

I also agree that webinoly site/htaccess/etc.. is a little easier to pick up and slightly more intuitive for new users.
by Talented
For me Webinoly is perfect the only issue is that on the whole server I need to install WP-CLI, as I have already installed more than 180 servers with Webinoly this is my tool that I use most to automate settings in WordPress applications and have it native it would be fantastic, but Webinoly is perfect for my needs.
by Rookie
i am just testing webinoly and i love it. It is simple fast and looks reliable!
