Hey, we have just released v4.3.0 of EasyEngine 🥳! This is a second major feature release just 15 days after v4.2.0 was released 🤯. Looks like someone is on a roll 😉.
This time we have features like:
- Support for PHP 8 in Sites
- Support for PHP 8 on Host
- Add WP VIP extensions on Site
- Support for CLI completions for ZSH
- Some bug fixes and stack updates
So let’s get started 🏎️.
Features Added ✨️
PHP 8 Site Support
We have added support for PHP 8 in sites. So now you can create new sites on PHP 8, as well as update existing sites to PHP 8. We haven’t made PHP 8 default for new sites as it may break some plugins. However, it may happen in the future.
# Create new site with PHP 8.0 ee site create example.com --type=wp --php=8.0 # Updates existing site to PHP 8.0 ee site update example.com --php=8.0
PHP 8 On-Host Support
We have also added support for PHP 8 on host. Earlier EasyEngine wasn’t able to run if PHP 8 was installed on the machine where EasyEngine running, as it’s code was not compatible with it. We have now made it’s code compatible with it so now if you have PHP 8 oh host, EasyEngine will not complain and work seamlessly.
Add WP-VIP Extensions in PHP
We have installed all the extensions present in WordPress VIP Go image. So now you can rest assured that any of your VIP Go sites will run just fine on EasyEngine too. This will be really helpful for people who’re developing on any VIP Go site locally, or those who’re planning to migrate to their sites to VIP Go.
Support for ZSH Completions
We have added proper support for ZSH completions, so now typing ee <tab> will show you the following output:
To configure ZSH competions, follow our handbook on this topic.
Rename ‘site ssl’ Command
While developing EasyEngine in early stages, we needed a command to verify CNAME records for wildcard SSL certificates. As we were in hurry and couldn’t get a better name, we called it
site ssl wasn’t very intutive and it didn’t specify what it was doing. So to make the command more descriptive, we have renamed it to
We have still kept the old command for backward compatibility reasons, so if any of your script use it, don’t fret 🙂.
Here is an example of previous and new command:
# Old Command ⛔️ ee site ssl example.com # New Command ✅️ ee site ssl-verify example.com
Remove Site Host Entry on Delete
There was a bug where entries of the site from
/etc/hosts were not getting deleting after deleting the site. This has been fixed in this release.

Thank you so much Dishit for your contribution (and I hope you won’t mind the small time we took to merge your PR 🙈).
