Repeat after me: WordPress.

Menard: Hello everyone! I’m trying to implement the public REST-api on a self-hosted wp-site. but every call takes between 2000-3000 ms. Is there any way to speed this up?

Debernardi: Laravelnewbie: my bad. try .entrymeta + br { display: none; } 

Hindmarsh: Accessing the site itself is very fast.

Chalfin: Accessing the site takes 96ms! So I don’t think there’s a problem with the server.

Knole: Nevva » what kind of requests are you making?

Cardinali: If it’s “grabbing posts and showing them” you might want to consider caching the results and serving those only using the API when needed etc

Siltman: Hi. Never used WP before, trying to install it with multisites on on a LAMP server that already contains a bunch of Symfony and custom websites. is somewhat ***uming that I have a unique wordpress site already installed on my apache root, how do I add WP sites to a specific subfolder of my apache root starting from scratch?

Knockaert: Sidi, have you considered using virtualmin?

Humber: Mosley, i’ve never heard of either, let me google them :-

Fitzke: Mosley, I am extremely reluctant to having *more* webstuff to be honest. is it not possible to configure WP sites using configuration files?

Batis: Sidi, no idea really, and it depends on the spec of your lamp, but remember simply pointing directories under apache is just a matter of setting up the right sites-availabel and site-s enabled confs in the apache folder

Daskal: Your real issue with the likes of wordpress will be getting it to play nice with your php/mysqld and all those other goodies

Vandiver: Now if you could set up an FTP server temp for the webspace area on your server

Ruddy: You can use online tools like installatron to install S

Burghardt: You can use online tools like installatron to install WP over the cloud

Torbeck: Or simply upload and extract the zip/tar, setup a Mysqldb for wordpress, and then use wordpresses built in installer pages to guide you through the process

Trailor: Mosley, I’ll go for the latter option

Anker: Sidi:

Kraasch: Personally, since my server is in a DC in france somewere, the control offered by webmin/virtualmin is a must

Magario: And makes it nice and easy

Stoffel: But if your server is on your desk and you are good with cli, maybe you can avoid load by cutting out advanced management tools

Kur: Mosley, pragmatically I’m likelier to have our sysadmins maintain this server if they know that no untrained user will modify config files via any kind of web admin UI :-

Sitts: That’s why I don’t want to introduce any additional mean to administrate any of the sites on this server

Hipsley: Ok well in that case, setup the webspoace via apache confs

Buckett: Setup the mysql db via cli

Guirand: Make sure the mysqldb is accessable by the webspace ie its at localhost of the ip/credentials are defined

Coogan: And let wordpress do the rest once you give it the correct instructions via the simpel web based installer

Malloch: Mosley, yup, got the DB running now. I was just confused as to where I could find all the root files

Collella: I have a big image that I want to be resized for facebook

Bompane: But for facebook is not good

Antinore: How to resize for good dimensions?

Filipovich: Can

Warnke: Ok well normally its inside a folder called sites-available and sites-enabled inside the apache folder

Holy: I have that image size

Filipovich: Why do you have an image tha large at all?

Tsasie: Now that depends on your setup it could be in /etc/apache2 or /var or ~/

Filipovich: Repeat after me: WordPress is not an image editor! Resize it with a good image editing tool like GIMP
