SpinupWP, the cloud-based WordPress server management panel from the parents at Delicious Brains, turns 4 this 12 months. They celebrated by launching some of the regularly requested options, a command-line interface to handle servers and websites from the terminal.

Other latest updates embrace exterior database help, the positioning log viewer which lets you view the final 1,000 traces from the WordPress debug.log file, in addition to the Nginx entry.log and error.log recordsdata, help for DigitalOcean OAuth which makes provisioning new DigitalOcean servers a breeze, and the brand new Path Redirects function for managing a number of redirects on the server degree.

Along with the CLI, SpinupWP has additionally launched a PHP SDK which is powered by the SpinupWP REST API, providing you a number of choices to handle your websites and servers.


I requested Brad Touesnard, founder and CEO of Delicious Brains, the place the thought for SpinupWP got here from.

“Back in 2002, I started a hosting company with my college roommate and built a hosting control panel from scratch,” Touesnard stated. “I made many bad design decisions building that software and have always wanted another crack at it. For example, that control panel had to be installed on every server, and I dreamed of a centralized control panel that simply connected to each server via SSH and ran commands. There’s something beautiful about that design that I’ve wanted to realize for many years.”

That concept stayed with Touesnard as he based Delicious Brains and grew the corporate and its product providing. The creation and reputation of Virtual Private Server (VPS) suppliers like DigitalOcean, Amazon AWS, and Google Cloud led to different open-source tasks constructing managed server platforms for them. Laravel Forge was one such platform, which Touesnard and the staff discovered very attention-grabbing. Many staff members have launched WordPress-related tasks and websites, and a couple of of them used Laravel Forge.

The server software program necessities for Laravel and WordPress are comparable, however it might all the time require some additional configuration to host WordPress websites. This impressed SpinupWP lead developer Ashley Rich to write down the primary iteration of a tutorial on tips on how to host WordPress your self, which finally grew to become the Install WordPress on Ubuntu information. After that, Rich and different staff members like Iain Poulson switched from Forge or no matter service they had been utilizing to following the information and self-hosting WordPress.

“Our team became very fond of using Ashley’s guide to configure servers for WordPress sites and Laravel apps, but setting it all up was complicated and time-consuming,” Touesnard stated. “So Ashley built a small app to automate the provision steps. We discussed the possible value of this app at a company retreat in 2017. We started talking about whether this would make sense as a new Delicious Brains product, an app similar to Laravel Forge but designed specifically for WordPress. We realized there were many really cool things we could do by focusing on WordPress and got really excited about building it.”

SpinupWP is the fruits of all these concepts.
