EasyEngine v4.1.0 Release

We’re glad to announce the release of EasyEngine v4.1.0 🎉 This version has updated Nginx, MariaDB, PHP versions, and added support for enabling proxy cache. It also comes with the much-awaited feature of adding alias domains to WordPress subdomain Multi-Sites. 🤩

Features Added 🛠️

Support for Alias Domains 👨‍💻

EasyEngine now supports alias domains along with all the other site creation features like LetsEncrypt SSL certificates, caching, etc. Also, an update command to add/delete alias domains as per needs, has been added

Please Note: This feature is currently available only for WordPress subdomain multisite.

Add alias domains in site creation:

ee site create example.com --type=wp --mu=subdom --alias-domains='a.com,*.a.com,b.com' --ssl=le

Update alias domains in a site:

ee site update example.com --add-alias-domains='c.com,d.com' --delete-alias-domains='b.com'

Do not forget to add SSL renewal cronjob for proper certificate renewals, if you have not added already.

Nginx Proxy Cache 🏎️

Nginx Proxy container will now be able to cache. This will be highly significant on high traffic sites. A detailed handbook post about the internals can be found here.

    • EasyEngine v4 is docker based. It will ideally support any distro that supports docker. Have not checked with latest debian 10 – buster. But it should smoothly work with it. In case it does not, please report it here.
