WordPress

WordPress is installed on a shared server. Please also look at the documentation for shared server to learn more.

WP-CLI

The server has WP-CLI installed and you can use it to manage your wordpress. Just go to your wordpress folder in yourdomain.com/htdocs and run wp command or run it from anywhere by providing it path to your wordpress like this:

wp --path=~/yourdomain.com/htdocs help

WP Cron

If you want WordPress cron jobs to be run more reliably you can set it up to be triggered via real cron. First you need to edit your wp-config.php and disable WordPresses builtin cron by adding following line to the file.

define('DISABLE_WP_CRON', true);

Then edit your ~/conf/crontab and add following line to it. Remember to replace http://yourdomain.com with your own site’s domain.

*/60 * * * wget -q -O - http://yourdomain.com/wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron

Then activate your crontab by running:

crontab ~/conf/crontab

Clear FastCGI Cache

You can purge the cache page by page by calling the path /purge on your domain. Access to this url is only from the server so you need to login to your shell account. The pre-installed Nginx Helper WordPress plugin can also automatically purge the cache when you publish a new post or edit something.
You can use curl to call the purge url like this:

curl https://yourdomain.com/purge/path_to_page

Example home page:

curl https://yourdomain.com/purge/
