@d19dotca Sadly, they do match. I'm guessing it's something with my current setup that's acting funny. I'll ignore it for now since I plan on migrating either to the new Contabo server that I got or upgrading my current one at DO to Ubuntu 20.04. I just thought it was a wrong setting on my part.
Thank you for looking into this and for sharing the custom spam rules! I know you've put a lot of time into that 👍
@girish You're right. It seems you need to have the search box separate than the address bar to have that option work. I like them separated because I use it mostly as a temp copy/paste location and you can see the info across tabs.
@humptydumpty I think low-to-medium traffic is the key in that since it's latency that has the most difference on perceived speed with web browsing & app interfaces (as opposed to things like downloading/streaming).
updown.io is my go-to for monitoring TTFB times from various locations and the cheapest way I've found of doing that.
I usually target <200ms total TTFB from the nearest location and <1s from the furthest to be considered satisfying for all.
Much of the TTFB effect is from the app itself.
As an example; we have Windows servers on Contabo, accessed via Remote Desktop on, and the screencasting is as responsive and quick as any.
If you wanted higher port speed, you'd still probably find upgrading the package on Contabo cheaper than going to something that has the higher port speeds on the lower tier packages anyway.
For me the decisions are: Contabo when I need the cost-efficient CPU & RAM but Hetzner when I want the VPS to be collaborated on, or potentially moved between accounts without migrating the underlying VPS.
I tried pretty much every other provider over the years, and when you find one or two that have a solution for all you need, perform well, have the lowest prices, and all the features you need to get things done - they become a set & forget utility and I'm grateful not to have to think about moving anything again for the foreseeable.
I post on here instead of the app's forum because it's not really an important issue and I just wanted to hear what other users are doing. Also, it's kind of annoying to have multiple forum accounts for basic questions. Thanks again!
I was able to help this time, but regardless of it being annoying - this was the wrong forum to post in. Cloudron does not make the app FreeScout - it only packaged it for Cloudron. So support is limited to user experience almost exclusively.
That said, I am glad you found a solution for this 🙂
@humptydumpty I like your idea of educating the users on the login page itself. 👍 You could also add something like This code protects your account even if someone stole your password. Or a better wording would make an impact, really!
I know I'm going to need this when it's time to update the plugin. Make sure to remove the -master from the folder name so it's just "twofactor_gauthenticator" and use the code mentioned in the Cloudron doc page, and not the one on the plugin's github page.
