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.

🌱 Spring is here 🌱

While we are working at full speed on Uberspace 8, we are of course also finding time to develop for Uberspace 7. Outside the first crocuses are sprouting, inside the pipeline is rolling out the freshest update:


  • new packages: poppler-glib-devel, giflib-devel


  • PHP 8.3 is now default

  • mail: raise mail_max_userip_connections from 20 to 50

  • mail: sign more headers with DKIM from:to:cc:subject:date


  • with our last release we forgot some extensions for PHP 8.3: php-sodium, php-pecl-decimal, php-pecl-gnupgadd.

For more information see the full changelog.


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.
