“I Got 99 Problems but a Click ain’t One”

I’ve often mentioned the ‘big twinkie’ that is mobile and/or responsive design, and the dramatic changes that wave is making on not only user interfaces, but how users interact with them.

For as long as we’ve had websites, the one thing you could always count on being questioned about in a review is “how many clicks does the user have to do?”. It’s as if everyone read the CliffsNotes on UI/UX and that one little nugget was all anyone came away with. Continue reading

Part 3: How I Built a cPanel Hosting Environment on Amazon AWS

In Part 2 of this series, we discussed selecting and launching a new Amazon Machine Instance (AMI), creating and configuring that instance to serve as a dedicated name server, and worked through configuring a DNS Cluster for use within your subnet.

Today, we will launch and configure a standard Web Server instance using cPanel 11.39 or newer. I will discuss how to join the new instance to our existing DNS Cluster and how to ensure that 1:1 NAT is configured and working properly.

The Scrum Method, via Chad McCanna

Here at cPanel, we use the Scrum framework to ensure an organized flow for each project. Recently, Chris, a Technical Product Specialist, asked Chad McCanna, our Scrum Master rockstar, to share some insight about why this works so well for cPanel.

“Chad, in your words, what is a Scrum Master?”

A Scrum Master is classified as a servant leader. They’re basically in charge of facilitating the development process and owning the Scrum framework. They act as a barrier between the product owner, stakeholders, and the team itself. They need to be the conduit through which all information passes, or at least be present during all conversations so that there’s no violation. For example, if you have someone’s manager acting as a product owner, there can be some influence there. The Scrum Master is there to kind of diffuse that, to allow the team to focus on their commitments; so yeah, they wear a lot of hats. In a nutshell, the Scrum Master owns the process and ensures that everyone else is able to do their jobs to the best of their ability.

“When you say “do their jobs to the best of their ability”, and then you state that you’re a facilitator of the development process, can you elaborate?”

IPv6: Update

Greetings again, I am Phil King, the Product Owner of the Angry Llama Scrum team, which is actively working on IPv6.

Here is a link to a brief demo of the IPv6 features we have completed to date. Our focus thus far has been on enabling IPv6 on website content.

Our IPv6 work is currently targeted for cPanel WHM version 11.40.

Currently, we are working on tools to better handle multiple IPv6 ranges or subnets. This will enable the customers that want to break up a large allocation (e.g., a /64) into smaller ranges, and also assists the customer that gets only a handful of IPv6 addresses.

Part 2: How I Built a cPanel Hosting Environment on Amazon AWS

In Part 1 of this four part series, we discussed establishing your VPC, creating and configuring your small subnet, and worked through configuring the Security Groups for our two instance types (‘NS_SG‘ and ‘VS_SG‘).

Today, we work on launching a two new instances, running cPanel DNSONLY, into our VPC and configuring these to be the primary and secondary DNS resolvers for our environment. While this series is written with the assumption of using dedicated DNS instances, you could easily use these instructions on dual use instances that both serve as web servers and as name servers.
