Uberspace 7 manual


Uberspace is a hosting platform targeted at people who want to look behind the scenes, do things we didn’t anticipate and generally prefer working with a text-based console. Our objective is to not only host the content you’d like to see on the web, but also to introduce you to Linux and basic shell usage.

Latest Version: 7.15 (2023-01-23)


We now create a DKIM key for your account, which you can use with all your mail domains. You get the neccesary information for your DNS records when adding a new domain, or via the new uberspace records list command. You can check our Spam protection article for some additional information.

PHP 7.4

PHP 7.4 has reached its end of life last year. This means we will eventually remove it. And you should switch to an officially supported version as soon as possible (e.g. 8.0, 8.1 or 8.2).



  • We decided not to deprecate PHP 7.4 just yet. To detect possible problems we just switched all users still on 7.4 to version 8. You can manually change the version back with uberspace tools version use php 7.4.


  • MongoDB 4.0

  • Ruby 2.5

  • Ruby 2.6

Sometimes the version shown on your host may be higher than the newest version here. In this case we might have applied additional fixes shortly after a release or did internal changes without user impact. We deem updates like these hotfixes and they are not necessarily included in this changelog.
