JS frameworks: React, Angular, or Vue?

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Introduction

In this tutorial, we will discuss three of the most popular javascript frameworks: React, Angular, and Vue. We will look at the pros and cons of each, their usage statistics, discussions about which one to choose, and which one should be studied for future use. Because programming languages and frameworks are all tools in a developers tool belt, and each has its place.

Again, we should remind ourselves that because these changes occur rapidly, after a year and a half a year, the situation can radically change.

How To Set Up Multiple PHP Versions in Webmin

Reading Time: 4 minutes

What is Webmin?

Webmin is a browser-based graphical interface to help you administrate your Linux server.  Much like cPanel or Plesk, Webmin allows you to set up and manage accounts, Apache, DNS zones, users and configurations.  As these configurations can get somewhat complicated Webmin works to simplify this process. The result is fewer issues during server and domain setup.  Which results in a stable server and a pleasant administration experience. Unlike Plesk or cPanel, Webmin is completely free and open to the public. Unfortunately, here at Liquid Web, we do not offer managed support for Webmin, but we are always willing to assist as much as possible when issues arise.   You can download Webmin from their site. Also, you can find some excellent documentation on this interface.
