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.


If you’re looking for guides and how to install certain tools like Ghost and WordPress check out the ⚛️ Uberlab!


Latest Version: 7.11.1 (2021-05-03)


  • Node.js v16.
  • inotify-tools


  • We changed the format of the user access log (again) and added the port after the host. Now the format should be compatible with VCOMBINED / NCSA with VHOST parsers, e.g. GoAccess. E.g.:

    isabell.uber.space:443 - - [28/Apr/2021:16:10:23 +0000]
    "GET /hello/world.php HTTP/1.1" 200 42 "-" "HTTPie/0.9.4"
  • When adding mail domains, we priviously only accept domains, whose MX record points to the FQDN of the host. Now we also accept domains whose MX record points to a domain, whose A record resolves to the host.


  • Our new Dovecot does not play well with qmail (qmail masks SIGCHLD, Dovecot does not unmasks it). Until this is fixed upstream, we added a workaround.


  • We added more fields to our internal access log.

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.
