Cerber.Hub for managing multiple websites

We’ve added new columns and filters to the list of slave websites. The new columns display server IP addresses, hostnames, and countries where servers are located (technically, those are country that IP address belongs to). All values in the new columns are retrieved and updated automatically. To free space for new columns, you can change the layout by moving website homepage URLs to the site name column. We’ve implemented new country and server filters that enable you to quickly navigate and manage hundreds of websites. Know more about Cerber.Hub.

WordPress website security

Minor updates

  • Cerber.Hub: When viewing the list of active plugins on a slave the list website is sorted in alphabetical order.
  • Cerber.Hub: PHP 5.6 or newer is required to activate the slave mode.
  • Fixed: on a WordPress 5.3-RC3 multisite installation when enabling settings on Hardening tab: Uncaught Error: Call to a member function switch_to_locale() on null in /sandbox/sandbox3/wp-includes/l10n.php

Bug fixes

  • Cerber.Hub: if a WordPress plugin is installed on several slave websites and the plugin needs to be updated on some of the slave websites, the plugin is shown as needs to be updated on all the slave websites.
  • Access Lists: Depending on the number of items in the access lists, the IP address 0.0.0.0 can be erroneously marked as whitelisted or blacklisted.
