    It's a bit of a pain to log into the various admin status pages:
    - zend opcache
    - memcache
    - php-fpm
    - nginx pagespeed # I did see the note about needing to be IP-protected

    I'm thinking about making life a little easier on myself, as I only just now noticed my opcache was running out of space and I want it to be easy for me to check these pages so I notice sooner next time...

    Had a few questions:

    1) if I want to make them all have the same username/passwords, will this create problems when upgrading nginx or php? Thinking about making a /usr/local/nginx/html/admin.html page that links to the different status pages, and if they all have the same creds, then once I'm in and the cookie is set I can access them all no problem.

    2) Where is the nginx conf file that locks down the memcache_xxx.php file? I grepped but wasn't finding it.

    3) Any reason to not move them to /memcache.php /opcache.php etc? They'll have strong enough passwords, and I'll probably turn on IP-based protection, wasn't sure if there was another security risk I was unaware of with easily guessable paths, or if modifying these paths will create conflicts when upgrading nginx/php.

    fyi, if you bookmark urls as the following format, you auto input the user/pass without needing to enter it

    Code:
    http://username:password@ipaddress/protectedarea/
    this allows separate user/pass and never having to enter the user/pass ;)

    2) memcached password is set inside memcached.php file itself there's variables for user/pass

    I never bookmark anything honestly. Plus all my passwords are in Lastpass, I like to keep them there and not worry about keeping updated other places as well.

    Any hints on where the memcache_xx.php file gets locked down?

    hmmm wonder if i can move all the stats admin pages under directory link /adminstats with password protection on that so any stats/admin files located there will be password protected under one password
