What's New?

We're always adding new features and improvements to SpinupWP. See below for the latest enhancements and email us if there’s a feature you'd like to see next.

Disk usage shown on server screen

You can now see each server’s disk space usage right from the server dashboard. We also released a comprehensive article on how to audit your server’s hard disk if you’re running out of disk space.

Site’s file permissions

To automatically correct file permissions for your site, head over to the site’s settings screen and click ‘Correct File Permissions’ from the dropdown by the ‘Clone Site’ button in the top right corner.

Enable/Disable git on existing sites

We’ve completely revamped how we handle git deployments on the backend of SpinupWP. You won’t notice any changes on the frontend for these particular updates, but great improvements have been made that will further solidify the stability and functionality of our git integration.

In addition to that, you’ll now see a “Git” tab on all sites in SpinupWP, even if they don’t have git enabled.

If your site doesn’t already have git enabled, you can enable it by clicking the “Git” toggle switch.

Now fill in the required information and if needed, install the required WordPress plugins and your site will be ready to start pulling from your repo. Please note, when implementing git on an existing site, all files that are in git will overwrite existing site files with the same path and filename. You can read more about how all of this works in our updated git documentation.

Ability to run WordPress updates from the dashboard

SpinupWP automatically checks for updates to WordPress core, themes, and plugins once every 24 hours using WP-CLI. You also have the ability to run these updates directly from SpinupWP. When pending WordPress updates are found, you’ll see a notification icon with the number of updates available next to the site on your dashboard:

You can click on this icon to bring up the WordPress update options.

Automatic checks for WordPress core, plugin, and theme updates

SpinupWP now automatically checks for WordPress core, plugin, and theme updates for you once a day! You can also run these updates right from SpinupWP’s dashboard. If you have updates available, you’ll now see an icon on your dashboard that represents the number of pending updates.

Clicking on this icon will bring up our new WordPress update modal. If your site has git enabled, you’ll be presented with a warning about making WordPress updates outside of your git repo.

If you don’t have git enabled or you choose to proceed with updating anyway, you’ll then see the WordPress update options.

If you’ve already set up backups for your site, you’ll have the option to make a backup before running any WordPress updates.

Simply select the backup option along with the WordPress items you wish to update and submit. SpinupWP will handle the backup and update WordPress for you in the background. You can monitor the status of this process via the events dropdown.

Selecting “View” on a completed WordPress update task will show the detailed output of the process. This is useful for viewing what plugins and themes were updated.

Don’t forget to test once the backup and updates have completed. If interested, you can learn more about updating WordPress in SpinupWP.

In addition to the WordPress updates, we’ve completely revamped our notification system.

Simplified git

Git sites will be upgraded to a simplified git structure on next push.

We also fixed git asking for credentials on force pushes.

Move sites to a different server

We’re very excited to have shipped the ability to easily move a site from one SpinupWP server to another. In the dashboard, you’ll notice a Move option in the actions menu…

And when you visit a site’s settings, you’ll see a Move Site option in the actions menu there…

Clicking that option will prompt you for which server you’d like to move the site to…

Clicking the Move Site button will then kick off a process to create an exact duplicate of the site on the destination server complete with SSL certificates, Nginx configs, git repo, sites files, database, etc. For a full list of what is copied and the operations performed, see the doc.

Cloning site process

You can then test your site on the new server and if all is well, update your DNS to point your domain(s) to the new server. Of course you should probably be a little more careful than that. The doc contains a complete process for moving a site safely using the Move Site tool.
