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.

  • We disabled the penalty system in Dovecot, wich should result in faster SMTP AUTH conntection times.

  • If a user service is missing a startsecs setting, we add startsecs=30, to prevent endless loops, caused by broken services.

  • rust-analyser is now part of the “user versioned tools”, meaning you can run it, without using the full path to the executeable.

  • Updated htop to 3.2.

  • The default PHP version was increased to 8.1.


  • The Rust language server rls is deprecated (but the rust-analyser is availabel).

  • Ruby 2.5 and 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.
