Server Configuration Files

Here are the locations of the most important configuration files on the server.

Sometimes you just need to get down to the command line and tweak some things.  Knowing where these files are located will help!


NGINX File Locations


Global Configuration

/etc/nginx/nginx.conf

This is the master configuration file for your entire NGINX server.

Individual Site Configuration

/etc/nginx/sites-enabled/

Each file in there contains the configuration for a single site.

Files For Each Site

/var/www/

One folder for each site is located in this location.  This is where WordPress files are installed.

PHP Configuration For Each Site

/etc/php/7.4/fpm/pool.d

This is the PHP configuration for a site.

Note: change ‘7.4’ to match the version of php you’re working with.

Public SSH Keys For sFTP Site Users

If you  add an SSH key for an sFTP user, that key is stored in:

/var/www/<domain>/.ssh_<username>/authorized_keys.

For example, if you have a domain called wpvix.com and an sFTP user named sftp_wpvix_user, the public SSH key for the user will be stored in:

/var/www/wpvix.com/.ssh_sftp_wpvix_user/authorized_keys.

Open LiteSpeed File Locations


Global vHost

/usr/local/lsws/conf/httpd_config.conf

This is the global configuration file for OLS.  It also contains the pointers to the individual configuration files for each site.

Site vHost Config

/usr/local/lsws/conf/vhosts/<yourdomain.com>/vhconf.conf

This is the configuration file for a site.  This includes some of the PHP configs for each site.

Files For Each Site

/var/www/

One folder for each site is located in this location.  This is where WordPress files are installed.

Global PHP configuration

/usr/local/lsws/lsphp${phpver}/etc/php/${phpver2}/litespeed/php.ini

Note: change ${phpver} to 74, 81 etc. and ${phpver2} to 7.4, 8.1 etc (to match the version of php you’re working with.)  eg for php 7.4:

/usr/local/lsws/lsphp74/etc/php/7.4/litespeed/php.ini

Site PHP Configuration

A site’s PHP.INI file is located in:

/var/www/<domain>/.phpini/php.ini

If you do not see a .phpini folder then it means the server or site was created before WPCD 5.2.  You will need to create this folder and the php.ini file (while logged in as root/sudo). See the WPCD 5.2 technical upgrade notes for more information.

Note: Change <domain> to match your domain name.

Public SSH Keys For sFTP Site Users

If you  add an SSH key for an sFTP user, that key is stored in:

/var/www/<domain>/.ssh_<username>/authorized_keys

For example, if you have a domain called wpvix.com and an sFTP user named sftp_wpvix_user, the public SSH key for the user will be stored in:

/var/www/wpvix.com/.ssh_sftp_wpvix_user/authorized_keys

Locations of WPCD Configuration Files


Local Backups

~/.wp-backup 
or 
/root/wp-backup

This is a hidden folder that stores our compressed backup files.  When you attempt to restore a site, we pull the files from this folder.  If you need to restore from a remote location you can download the remote files into this location.

Local Backups (Advanced)

~/.wp-backup2 
or 
/root/wp-backup2

This is a hidden folder. When we attempt to restore a site, we pull the files from this folder.  If you need to restore from a remote location you can download the remote files into this location.

Configuration Backups

/opt/wp-conf-backup

This is the folder that contains the backups of configurations that we make every four hours (if you choose to install this service on your server)

List of Sites With Linux Crons

/usr/local/bin/wpcron.txt

When you enable the Linux cron for a site, the information about that site is added to this file.  Every minute or so we sequentially process the lines in this file to trigger the WP CRON for each site.  By using this file we can ensure that multiple cron jobs aren’t conflicting and fighting for resources.

List of Sites To Be Copied To Another Server (Site-Sync / Copy-To-Server)

/etc/wp-site-sync.conf

When you schedule a site to be periodically pushed to another server, that site information is added to this file. Just as with crons, when it’s time to run the sync process, we run through the list of sites in this file one at.  This prevents the sync process from using up too many resources on the server by attempting to run multiple sync processes simultaneously.
