Not sure if it goes down because of ZPanel, before it gets the chance to report memory errors.

Anyway, think about it for a moment: one of my sites is running solo on a 1GB droplet, getting around 2-3k uniques per day. No control panel. Yesterday it went out of memory and had to reboot it.

Imagine 8 websites with the same RAM available + ZPanel :)

Regarding setups without a control panel: it may look difficult at first, but it’s not that hard. And they’ve got all the tutorials you’d need. Plus, sys admin skills are always useful.
The only painful setup process on Linux is the email server, if you need it. I had it working at one point, kind of, but decided to drop it and go with Gmail.

You could try that or keep using ZPanel and upgrade to at least 2GB, if not 4GB.
Remember to add swap and mod_pagespeed if you haven’t already, those really help.

DigitalOcean have loads of security tutorials, have you checked the community?
https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/?tags[]=Security

I personally stay away from any control panel on my VPSs, just vanilla LAMP/LEMP stacks with WP, firewall, root user disabled, changed default 22 port + mod_pagespeed & swap for a performance boost.

Looks like that bot is polling your setup and ZPanel fails when it doesn’t find a file/folder(?)
Are you sure it’s not to do with memory at all? How much RAM do you have on a setup running 8 sites?

Control panels use up a lot of memory, it’s best if you manage without them IMO. Good luck!

I haven’t noticed any increase in heating compared to regular (opened) usage.
It normally doesn’t, I had problems when playing world of wacraft or when compressing videos in camtasia or After Effects ( a while back )

Oh, OK, that’s good to hear. I don’t game or do video editing on the Mac, got a beast desktop for gaming :D Cheers!


Thanks man! Just check and the price is almost the same as Thunderbolt :P

Exactly my point. Wait and get a Thunderbolt, it’s better and it’ll be much more integrated with your MBP. ;)

Thanks everyone :) I love to have Apple Thunderbolt Display also but it’s a bit out of my budget right now. If you can suggest other monitors like samsung, dell, LG , etc… I’ll be very happy to check and compare those ;) Cheers, phpbits

Heard good things from friends about this Dell. Although I’d also advice to wait ;)

@EasyDevelopment – lol, haven’t used the default ones in such a long time, I forgot how they look :D

And I have been working lately with the BookArc, Photoshop/Lightroom alongside the ones you mentioned, plus others: I haven’t noticed any increase in heating compared to regular (opened) usage. It did heat up a lot when I didn’t use clamshell mode, probably because the GPU had to work for the Mac + the 24” monitor I currently have. :)

I’m in the same situation and I’m getting an Apple Thunderbolt Display at the end of this month. I already purchased BookArc, to earn more desk space.

Been waiting for Apple to refresh the display, but from the looks of it they’ll probably come up with a 4K monitor or something, which I don’t really need (would have loved USB3 though).


Well, a thunderbolt rocks, and is worth $1500 ( price I payed ) . I’m planning to buy another one after my old desk arrives.

Awesome wallpaper on the MBP, mind sharing it? :)

Hey Rowan, sorry for the delay.

I had touchevents: true, indeed.

The following helped fix it, thanks for pointing in the right direction :)

^ Oh man, just wanted to post that :D

It’s funny how each product they release is frowned upon at first, only to sell like crazy.

Anyway, don’t mind me…

P.S.: I like the phone at first sight. LOVE the watch, definitely getting one.

Hi Rowan, thanks for replying.

The issue occurs just on one machine, in Firefox/Windows (the one I was using when I opened the thread).

All my other machines and browsers work fine, even Chrome on that machine works fine. I’ve checked and, on any computer I log on, the drop-downs show on hover as they should: it’s only Firefox/Win on that particular desktop that still uses the ‘click to drop down’.

I see it’s not a Firefox issue in particular, because I am writing this from a different computer also in Firefox, and here drop-downs work on hover. So it’s like Firefox on that computer got ‘marked’ somehow. Again, I’ve tried removing everything I could find about Envato (cookies, etc), but the issue persists.

Is it something stored on the server or set for my account, for that particular IP/user agent combination?

Thanks,
Cosmin – digitalimpact

I think it was a test a while back, it was happening in all browsers.

I’ve requested a staff reply, maybe someone from the dev team can be so kind as to explain what the issue could be.

Hey Envato,

I know you guys were experimenting with on-click drop-downs at some point (for example, the “Forums” or the user account top right menu), I’ve seen that in the past on all my computers.

Problem is, this persists in just one of my browsers – Firefox/Win from which I’m writing this post. I’ve tried everything, deleted all caches and cookies, even checked for localStorage items… I also just updated Firefox, but to no avail.

Can someone from the dev team please tell me what is causing this? I seem to find nothing on the client side, maybe this particular browser has been marked somehow on your end?

I also wonder if I’m the only one experiencing this, it’s pretty annoying :) Thanks!
