In Topic: Meltdown And Spectre Cpu Vulnerabilities

08 January 2018 - 05:06 PM

I hate to over simplify things, but in this case it seems appropriate due to the scope. When you combine the hardware affected by Meltdown And Spectre together, everyone is affected in some manner, which includes us.


Regarding our shared/reseller hosting servers, we begin patching these servers as soon a Centos released the updates. We have yet to see any decrease in performance and are still testing and monitoring.

User - my TCH login user
PSWD - my TCH login pswd

Did you create your database yet? Those two fields should be your database user and password that you set when creating the database.

If you are unsure, feel free to open a ticket to our desk at https://support.totalchoicehosting.com and one of our techs will assist. There is also the Softaculous Auto Installer in cPanel, which will do the install for you.

Hi John,


I could see that permissions on that directory were set to 750. I have now changed them to 755 and the directory appears to be loading fine. Please check it out and let us know if the issue continues.

This should not affect access to your site, however, you should update your WordPress install to be safe.

I see that php 5.6 is going to have security updates until 31 Dec 2018. Any idea when we will no longer be able to use it on TCH?


The only date we can guarantee would be the "Security Support Until" date, however, 6 months beyond that is a safe assumption. We typically support versions beyond the EOL date and review for changes as needed. As long as a version does not prevent or interfere with our ability to maintain our servers, we will do our best to support it as long as possible.
