Though EasyEngine is command line tool, there are plenty of web-based tools and scripts which can make server administration easy.
Till version 1.2, these tools were accessible with
/ee/ URL prefix. As number of tools grew, we moved them to dedicated port 22222 for better management of growing list of admin tools and also for security
Admin Tools & Scripts
/dbfolder: PhpMyAdmin, Adminer and Anemometer
info.phpfile with phpinfo for production php fool and webgrind for xdebug profiling analysis
/fpmfolder: status page for each fpm pool
/cachefolder: memcache, opcache and nginx-fastcgi cache viewer/cleaner
All these tools are hosted under as a PHP site at location
/var/www/22222. We choose to name site itself as 22222 so it will easily standout from other sites.
You can add/remove other tools & scripts in
/var/www/22222/htdocs. You can disable or even delete admin tools using
ee site commands. But rest assured, they are secure as you can read below!
Port 22222 & Security
You can open port 22222 (5-times two) on any IP or site hosted on your server. It uses HTTPs with a self-signed certificate. Your browser may complain about SSL certificate but you can ignore it. Your connection to server will be still encrypted.
The username and password for 22222 port ( HTTP auth ) is given at the time of Nginx installation. You can change username and password by
ee secure --auth command.
