problems:

* Not able to connect to IDN-Domains 
    (Internationalized domain name - domain name has 
     language-specific script or alphabet character)
    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/idn-domains-connection-fails/
    Fixed in v.4.0.3 - 20 sep 2019.

* Version 4 - login doesn't open in MainWP screen
    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/not-starting-in-mainwp/
    Was using a redirect, which was removed in v 4.
    Can put it back with a filter:
      https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/hooks/login_redirect/

* cURL error 60: SSL certificate problem: certificate has expired
    - a global problem with Let's Encript certificates.
    - Temporary workaround:
        tell your Dashboard to ignore SSL errors by going into 
        Settings–>Advanced Settings and turning off Verify SSL certificate.
    - more:

           - Good technical explanation.
           - Code to fix it if you do not plan to update WordPress, 
             but need working HTTP requests.

more info:
 
  * The Dashboard IP is the same as the Server IP of the server where
      you have your MainWP Dashboard installed.

  * By default, MainWP will try to reconnect disconnected sites once a day.
