- ⚠️Security Fix⚠️ Disable TLS v1 by default – TLSv1 was enabled, by default, on EasyEngine. Since there are known vulnerabilities in it, we have decided to remove the support for it. Although this might mean some of the older clients might not be able to access the site, you can re-enable the support by
ee config set ssl-policy Mozilla-Intermediate
. Checkoutour docs to see which other policy can you set.
