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.

Support for custom SSH port number

If the server you’re connecting to is running SSH on a port other than the default port 22, you can now specify it when first provisioning the server, or change it later on from the server settings screen:

Global events in the nav bar

You can see global events in the navigation bar – an awesome UI improvement.

Now no matter where you navigate in SpinupWP, you will always see events that are running and when they complete. And if you’re working in a team, you can see the events both you and your teammates are currently running and have run in the past.

Referral program launched

You can offer your friends $50 in SpinupWP credits and earn $25 in credits for yourself. No need to sign up, your unique referral link and dashboard can be found right inside your SpinupWP account. Look for “Give a Friend $50” under your account drop-down in the upper right.

Ability to change the primary domain of a site

Prior to today, if you wanted to change the primary domain of a site you had to create a new site in SpinupWP then manually copy files, update configurations, and run find and replace operations. It was painful and you, our customers, told us as much.

Today this pain disappears.

Changing the primary domain of a site in SpinupWP is now as easy as updating the domain in the site settings and clicking Save!

When you change the primary domain, SpinupWP will rename a bunch of files and folders on your server, run find and replace operations against files and your site’s database, and verify the configuration before flipping the switch. If verification fails, it rolls everything back so that your old domain continues to function while you figure out what went wrong. For a full list of all the operations performed when you change the primary domain of a site, see our documentation.

After changing the primary domain we recommend you test your site thoroughly and check any Nginx config files you might have added or customized. Also, please be aware that changing the primary domain can negatively impact SEO if the old domain is not redirected properly. Changing the primary domain will result in a short period (~1 min) of downtime while SpinupWP moves config files around, generates new HTTPS certificates and restarts Nginx and PHP-FPM.

Changing the primary domain of a site is actually a prerequisite of some of the other features on our roadmap, including site cloning and temporary domains.

Purge a site’s page cache from the SpinupWP app

Since day one of SpinupWP, you could always purge the page cache from inside your WordPress dashboard. But from time-to-time a problem might prevent you from accessing your WordPress dashboard and the solution might be to purge your page cache. 😕

You can now purge the page cache when your WordPress dashboard is inaccessible using the handy Purge Page Cache button in the SpinupWP app.

SpinupWP plugin

The SpinupWP plugin adds page cache purging functionality to your WordPress site. In addition to automatically clearing the page cache for individual posts, pages, and other content when it is updated, this plugin allows you to purge the cache for the whole site as well. It also enables a persistent object cache within WordPress, which will greatly reduce the number of database calls for each page request. This plugin can be easily installed by searching “SpinupWP” inside the WordPress dashboard or, if you’re using Composer, by running:

composer require wpackagist-plugin/spinupwp
