Virtualizor updates gives VPS Providers grey hair and sleep deprevation
Yet again, a Virtualizor **PATCH ** created issues for us VPS Providers.
Not sure of my intentions of this open thread, more than a rant about the frustration on how this is managed.
Don't get me wrong, I love Virtualizor for their will to implement new features and trying to be in the forefront as a panel to manage virtual servers.
At the same time, this is what gives me grey hairs and unnecessary tickets with time spent on keeping water from flooding the life-boat instead of focusing on other things that also need my attention.
I am, a consultant by heart and mind, sometimes I compare myself to the likes of a prostitute, I sell my services for money.
Every time this type of thing happens, I have to spend my time fixing or at least working around a problem that someone else caused.
So instead of helping a customer and making money, I have to spend my time on something else that in the end, cost me money.
No, I'm not losing billions every time it happens but it wears me down. I don't know how many times I've looked at competitors for managing my virtual servers, but what I would gain in product stability, I would lose in features.
I've even considered building my own panel, and I did pay a developer to start. Due to reasons, that development has stopped and I ended up with nothing.
@Virtualizor : PLEASE, stop adding features to PATCH releases.
Make a proper release strategy, where PATCH means PATCH.
Change the auto-update system to only include bugfixes.
When releasing feature updates, make it mandatory that the admin has to apply the update by clicking on a button och checking an agreement box.
ALSO, better notifications when updates are applied to the WHMCS module.
It has happened in the past that the date on the website wasn't updated when an updated version was available. And use proper software versioning on the module.
Don't apply patches to the same software version.
This is all written with a lot of emotions, but I had to write something, to release some of the tension going on.
Live long and prosper, I might not
