Securing and updating HSphere PHP using CloudLinux

With the recent Joomla exploit it became even more clear that we hsphere hosters have to find a way to get the latest PHP versions onto our servers. We are using CloudLinux on every web server already to take advantage of its ability to keep customers resource usage in check. CloudLinux also comes with alternative PHP packages (alt-php) including hardened PHP which are EOL php versions that the CloudLinux team keeps patching.

Joomla 3.4 has been released

on Feb 24th 2015 Joomla 3.4 was released.

Besides the over 700! bugs that have been fixed in this release, some new features have been added.

  • Interesting mostly for developers:
    • a stability flag for extensions has been added
    • Composer has now been integrated

 

  • Interesting for most everybody:
    • A collapsible sidebar in the admin area to make things cleaner
    • the ability to edit modules from the front-end
    • integration of Google's reCAPTCHA for form submits and user registration.
    • the weblinks component is not truly a component which you can un-install if not needed

As usual, if you used our automated installer to install your Joomla, you can backup and upgrade to Joomla 3.4 with the click of a button.
Alternatively ask our support team to do it for you.
Remember to also update ALL components and plugins while you are at it.

Stay up2date, Stay safe!
