We have recently improved our Connection Methods on IWP admin panel from version 2.11.0
You will be seeing the below options on your settings page.
When you select Auto, the best available connection method on your server will be selected automatically by IWP admin panel to communicate with your WordPress sites. In-case a connection method fails a fall back connection method will automatically be adopted.
If you want your site to be connected in a specific method then you can choose one of the three connection modes available.
1. Command Mode
On a Linux server you will have the below runners to choose from
Note: You will not be able to select this mode if your panel runs on a Windows server.
2. Socket Mode
You can select this method if Socket mode is enabled on your server. If you are not able to select this option then get in touch with your hosting provider and have them enable socket mode.
Once enabled you will have the below runners to choose from.
3. cURL Mode
This mode will be your default fall back. If none of the above connection methods work. You can select this mode.
