cPanel Squirrel-mail missing

cPanel has finally removed off Squirrel-mail as webmail client from their latest version v78.0.12. The webmail which has been extremely light-weight, user-friendly and popular for all these years, finally has been removed from cPanel control panel, due to lack of development and security.

For those who are wondering what will happen to their contact list of Address book in Squirrelmail, they can be imported to Roundcube or Horde by following below procedures:

  • Login via SSH and make a backup of the user’s .sqmaildata directory:
cp -a /home/username/.sqmaildata /home/username/.sqmaildata-backup
  • Browse to a user’s .sqmaildata directory:
cd /home/username/.sqmaildata/
  • Create a file named /home/username/.sqmaildata/address-book-converter.sh with the following content:
#!/bin/bash
for x in `ls *.abook`
do

cat $x | while read line
do
echo "BEGIN:VCARD" >> $x.vcf
echo "VERSION:3.0" >> $x.vcf
echo -n "N:" >> $x.vcf
echo -n `echo $line | cut -d'|' -f3` >> $x.vcf
echo -n ";" >> $x.vcf
echo `echo $line | cut -d'|' -f2` >> $x.vcf
echo -n "FN:" >> $x.vcf
echo `echo $line | cut -d'|' -f1` >> $x.vcf
echo -n "EMAIL;TYPE=PREF,INTERNET:" >> $x.vcf
echo `echo $line | cut -d'|' -f4` >> $x.vcf
echo "END:VCARD" >> $x.vcf
echo >> $x.vcf

done

echo "done $x"
done
  • Set the permissions on this script to 0755:
    chmod 0755 /home/username/.sqmaildata/address-book-converter.sh
  • Run the converter script:
    sh /home/username/.sqmaildata/address-book-converter.sh
  • Ensure the newly generated .vcf file is owned by the account username:
    chown username.username /home/username/.sqmaildata/*.vcf

Upon completing the steps above, you can browse to the /home/$username/.sqmaildata/ directory to download the .vcf file(s) to your workstation using the file transfer method of your preference (e.g. FTP, SFTP, cPanel >> File Manager). 

Once downloaded to your workstation, you can import the .vcf file into Roundcube with the following steps:

  1. Login to Roundcube
  2. Click on the Contacts button in the upper right area
  3. Click Import in the upper left area
  4. Click choose file, select the file, and click import

You can import the .vcf file into Horde with the following steps:

  1. Login to Horde
  2. In the horizontal navbar navigate to Address Book -> Address Book
  3. Click on the Import/Export button in the left sidebar
  4. Click choose file, select the file, and click import

Hopefully above tutorial helps you preserve all your contacts and address-book and import them to RoundCube or Horde, while we still keep missing Squirrelmail for the awesome webmail experience it has given us for all these years.!

How to optimise your WordPress website for fast and superior performance

optimize wordpress speed

Do you have a WordPress website? Are you struggling with your wordpress performance, which is loading slow in browser or taking too much time? Are you losing your visitors and SEO ranking at the cost of poor wordpress performance?

If your answer is yes, then you must consider a few things, to optimize your wordpress performance for super-fast and robust performance, which will load your website in just a few mili-seconds, enhancing its browser experience.

  • Choosing your webhost carefully and wisely: Web hosting company plays a major role in deciding your wordpress website performance. Further more, the type of web hosting you going to choose such as shared hosting or a VPS or a Dedicated server, will decide the performance factor for your wordpress website. WordPress performance is decided on few factors such as :

i) The reliability of web hosting company : With so many web hosting companies out there in market, there are many such companies that offer cheap wordpress web hosting and cramp the servers with thousands of shared hosting users. With so many people sharing server resources, it ultimately affects the mysql and web server performance, thus directly affecting your wordpress loading speed.

ii) Type of hardware used by web hosting company : If your website is hosted on a traditional normal server with simple hard drives, your website is likely to be affected with loading speed. Choosing a web hosting company that has its servers in Cloud, configured on pure SSD drives, will offer 1000x boost in server performance, directly benefiting your wordpress website loading speed.

iii) Application used on server: Your web hosting company is using the traditional Apache setup, without any optimization or caching, this is going to push back your website loading times to a considerable extent, and people browsing your website will experience sluggish loading times.
Choosing your webhost carefully who invest in reliable infrastructure and advanced technologies such as Litespeed web server, Http/2 implementation, Web server caching etc, will boost your wordpress website experience to a new level.

iv) WordPress security and reliability: Keeping your wordpress secure, up2date and protected is the biggest task that a wordpress webmaster has to go through. With so many exploits and attacks targetted almost everyday, your infected website can not only remove you from search engine rankings, but also permanetly damage your website online reputation. This is one of the most important factors that comes into consideration when wisely choosing your webhost.

Finding a web hosting company that offers all of above three important qualities could be a challenging task for someone who is not much aware about web hosting companies. But we at RSHosting proudly offer the best wordpress hosting, with our servers configured in failover Cloud clusters, backed up with pure SSD drives, deliveriing insanely super fast wordpress experience. We have our servers specially optimized for WordPress hosting, hosted on super-fast Litespeed web servers, with caching and HTTP/2 enabled. Further more, RShosting offers a choice of datacenters such as UK and USA geographical location, giving you SEO benefit due to geo-location of your website.

Our managed wordpress hosting plans start from as low as £7.50 per month on UK servers, while $7.50 per month on USA hosted servers : https://www.rshosting.com/wordpress-hosting/
RSHosting managed wordpress hosting comes with highly secure and reliable web hosting environment for your wordpress website, by keeping it up2date and protected against all online security threats.

  •  Choosing a good wordpress theme / framework:
    Theme / framework plays a very important role in deciding your wordpress website performance factor. While there are plenty of free themes available, if you plan to go with a paid theme, make sure you are investing and purchasing that theme from a well known vendor. A nulled or cracked theme, can open backdoor for hackers, to penetrate into your website. Good quality wordpress themes are available on websites such as themeforest.com etc.

 

  • Using a good caching plugin:
    Is your web hosting company offering any kind of caching at server end? Even if it does, it is recommended to have a good caching mechanism enabled for your wordpress website, so that it enhances browsing experience for your wordpress website. A good plugin, used by most of the wordpress users is W3 Total Cache plugin.

 

  • Using a CDN:
    A CDN will enhance your wordpress by storing all your website static files such as css, images, javascripts etc in their network and serving it to user from the closest possible geographical location, thus accelerating the browsing and loading speed of your website.
    Cloudflare is a good alternative when it comes to free CDN. Alternatively some users to use MaxCDN content delivery network.

 

  • 5) Optimising images:
    Image loading often makes a wordpress website load slow, thus affecting the loading time of wordpress website. These images can be professionally optimised with the help of amazing plugin such as Wp-Smushit. The plugin decreases the size of image by processing it without losing its quality.

 

  • Optimising index page:
    Index page is the first page that loads when accessing your wordpress, and it has to be fast and attractive. Optimising the index page with a few simple techniques, will make it load faster, thus increasing the retention rate of a new visitor, visiting your website. Few simple techniques include things such as showing excerpts instead of full posts, reducing the number of posts on page, removing the surplus sharing widgets from home page, removing inactive plugins and keeping it minimal.

 

  • Optimising wordpress database:
    Optimising your wordpress website database periodically will enhance the database performance, for rendering queries quickly and fast. There are a few free plugins available to keep your database optimised such as wp-optimize or wp-db manager.

 

  • Disabling Hotlink and leeching of content:
    Hotlinking can be termed as someone else on internet using images and content from your wordpress website, thus using your website bandwidth and using resources for no beneficial reason.

 

  • Adding expire header to static content:
    An Expires header is a way to specify a time far enough in the future so that the clients (browsers) don’t have to re-fetch any static content (such as css file, javascript, images etc).
    This way can cut your load time significantly for your regular users.

 

  •  Disabling pingbacks and trackbacks
    By default, WordPress interacts with other blogs that are equipped with pingbacks and trackbacks.
    Every time another blog mentions you, it notifies your site, which in turn updates data on the post. Turning this off will not destroy the backlinks to your site, just the setting that generates a lot of work for your site.

We at RSHosting offer the best managed wordpress hosting, where we offer pre-installed wordpress, optimised and secured with above mentioned techniques, so that you as a webmaster do not have to do anything to optimize your wordpress. As one of the best wordpress managed hosting provider, we take care of your wordpress website, to secure it and enhance it for super-fast blistering speed, while you concentrating on developing content for your website and making it popular on social media and rest of the web.

Google and Symantec SSL trust issues resolved

Back in March 2017, Google had given a setback to all users who were using Symantec SSL certificates, that Google Chrome browser will not trust all certificates that were issued by Symantec. The decision was taken by Google due to a series of failures by Symantec Corporation to properly validate the certificates before issuing them.

Google’s decision of not trusting SSL certificates which were issued by Symantec came as  a shock to everyone who had been using the SSL certificates that were issued by Symantec and its subsidiary companies such as Geotrust, Thawte, RapidSSL, Symantec etc.

However, it seems Google and Symantec have now decided to resolve this problem. Recently we got to know that Google and Symantec have now agreed on a plan that requires Symantec to migrate certificate validation to a third party. In exchange, Google would ensure that the Chrome browser  continues to trust Symantec certificates validated by this third party. Shortly thereafter, DigiCert announced its plan to acquire Symantec’s Website Security Business by the end of 2017. With this acquisition, Digicert would effectively take over the validation for all of Symantec’s certificate brands by December 1st, 2017, which would satisfy the asks of the browser community.

In light of these changes, Google has announced an updated plan as to how Chrome would deal with certificates issued by DigiCert’s validation infrastructure. This plan has received some coverage in the media, stating that Google would no longer trust any Symantec certificate brand by 2018. This information is incomplete, incorrect and it has created some confusion and uncertainty. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Until December 1, 2017, Symantec will continue to issue certificates from its current validation platform. Chrome will continue to trust certificates issued between now and December 1, 2017 until September 13, 2018.
  • From December 1, 2017, all Symantec certificate brands (Symantec, GeoTrust, Thawte and RapidSSL) will be issued from DigiCert’s validation platform and Chrome will trust those certificates. For clarity: the Symantec certificate brands will continue to exist after December 2017, they will only be issued from a different, upgraded validation platform. Google will continue to trust all Symantec certificates that have been issued from this new platform after December 1st, 2017.

What does this mean if you have a certificate from any of the Symantec brands?

Certificates issued prior to June 1, 2016

If you have a certificate that has been issued prior to June 1, 2016, the Chrome browser will no longer trust this certificate after March 15, 2018. In order to retain trust by the Chrome browser, you need to replace this certificate. Some important dates to keep in mind:

  • If the certificate expires prior to March 15, 2018, you need to do nothing. The certificate will continue to be trusted by Chrome until it expires.
  • If the certificate expires after March 15, 2018, but before September 13, 2018, you can re-issue this certificate any time before March 15, 2018.
  • If the certificate expires after September 13, 2018, you will need to re-issue the certificate after December 1st, 2017 but before March 15, 2018. You cannot re-issue the certificate at this time.

Certificates issued after June 1, 2016

If you have an existing certificate that has been issued after June 1, 2016, the Chrome browser will no longer trust this certificate after September 13, 2018. Some important dates to keep in mind:

  • If the certificate expires prior to September 13, 2018, you need to do nothing. The certificate will continue to be trusted by Chrome until it expires.
  • If the certificate expires after September 13, 2018, you will need to re-issue the certificate after December 1, 2017 but before September 13, 2018. You cannot re-issue the certificate at this time.
  • If you purchase a new certificate between now and December 1, 2017, the Chrome browser will trust this certificate until September 13, 2018. You will need to re-issue this certificate after December 1, 2017, and before September 13, 2018, to retain trust by the Chrome browser after September 13, 2018.
  • If you purchase a new certificate after December 1, 2017, the Chrome browser will trust this certificate. You will not be required to re-issue.

It is safe to continue to use Symantec certificates, but you will need to keep some of these key dates in mind to avoid any disruption. If your certificate has been purchased at any time with a 1-year validity period, it is very likely that no action is required on your part.
