What’s the best way to manage Moodle sites, hosted on DO server? We recently took over a client with two Moodle sites. We have never managed these type of sites before and moved the two sites from a shared hosting environment (with cPanel) to a new DO server. We’ve since worked with a freelance sysdev who claims that it would have been better to keep the sites on the old, shared server, as cPanel is better when it comes to things such as updating the Moodle app. Is he correct and what can we do now, seeing as we don’t really want to setup a new shared hosting server just for these two Moodle sites. The sysdev has told me that he spent up to 4 hours doing backups, updating the two Moodle sites (from 4.0.2 - 4.1) and also setting cron jobs, where she said it would only have taken 15 minutes with cPanel. Is he right about cPanel being better/easier for Moodle and what can we do (within DO) to make future updates / service easier and faster?
