SlickStack Vs. OneInStack (Alternative)

There is some confusion about OneInStack because it has so many potential builds and modules. When comparing OneInStack to SlickStack, really the best comparison is their LNMP build, which is actually independent from OneInStack. But since everyone just calls it OneInStack, that is what we call it here too.

If you use another staging service or simply don’t use staging at all and wish to disable staging sites, simply change your ss-config options to be STAGING_SITE=”false” and it will later remove […]

Adminer Bundled For Easy MySQL Management

The very lightweight Adminer script is now included by default in all SlickStack installations, hosted as a single adminer.php file under the /var/www/meta/ directory.
