Lightning-fast WordPress on Nginx

ss check

Called by certain processes in SlickStack such as ss install and cron jobs (in case missing or damaged). It will retrieve all the cron job and bash script files required by SlickStack from our public GitHub repo and place them under the /var/www directory. Note that the only file it will NOT download is ss-check itself,  to avoid any conflicts and to achieve better redundancy and stability…  instead,ss-worker is responsible for retrieving the latest ss-check script from GitHub and placing it under /var/www on an interval that, by default, is slightly less often.


  • runs /var/www/ss-check
