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: 7.15.14 (2024-04-10)


  • You may now use “minussed” mailaddresses like mailbox-ebay@example.com. This makes it easier to migrate mailaddresses from .qmail configurations (we already provide the more common format mailbox+ebay@example.com).

  • We run a hourly healthchecks on the userspaces to kill stucked PHP Worker processes. We will notify you by mail and add an entry to the php_error log.


  • PHP 8.0 has been completely removed from our systems

  • Users using Ruby3.0 have been migrated to Ruby3.1. We will disable the outdated version 3.0 one month later.

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.
