Quick Commands




Resolved an issue where Quick Scripts weren't being ran by selected server user.

Firewall! πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯




CleanShot 2022-01-10 at 16.21.05.png

Firewall has been added as a service so that you can now check its heartbeat. Cleavr installs UFW (Uncomplicated Firewall) during server provisioning. With the heartbeat, you can view current status as well as which ports are currently open.

But wait… there's more!

You can now also manage firewall rules from directly within Cleavr! In the services section, just scroll towards the bottom of the page and you will see existing firewall rules, add new ones, and remove rules you no longer need.

See what sites your database is tied to




If you include a database when creating a site, the associated site is now visible on the database card.

UI Tweaks

We've released several small UI tweaks. Many are dark-mode related. πŸŒ’

Feature Lab, Plain Server, and www-check




Feature Lab πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ”¬

We're starting a beta preview channel where we can enable new beta features for specific users. This will allow us to enable Beta features in production to perform real-life trials of new features to ensure they are working as desired before making available for everyone.

And… we already have a new feature in the lab!

Currently available in the lab - GitLab self-hosted setup!

  • Ability to add GitLab EE service to a server
  • Ability to add a GitLab self-hosted VC Profile
  • Ability to connect web apps and deploy your GitLab self-hosted repos

Next up for the Lab:

Google Cloud VPS integration and team functionality

How can you get access to Feature Lab experiments?

Plain Server πŸ’»

Do you need a server with nothing on it? Welp, you're in luck! You can now select the Plain Server option when provisioning a new server. Only SSH and some security settings will be applied to the server. No web server solution, such as NGINX, will be installed on the server.


If you manage your domain records in Cleavr, we now perform a check when adding a non-www domain for a new site to see if there is a www record for the domain that is pointing to the server. If so, then Cleavr will automatically include the www record variant when adding LetsEncrypt SSL to the domain.

Minor UI tweaks

We've made some minor tweaks around the GUI. See if you can spot them! πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

SSL Error Message, PM2 Logs, and more!



  • SSL Errors now display an error message when adding LetsEncrypt SSL during site creation or post site creation. If SSL errors, expand the accordion to view the error message.
  • PM2 system level logs have been added to NodeJS App Reports in the web apps section - this is often the most helpful report for NodeJS errors and so wanted to add it somewhere more intuitive.
  • Released some UI enhancements - hover over main list item headers for a new on-hover treatment 🀩

New sites section!




We've broken out sites into their own section on the main navigation! πŸŽ‰

CleanShot 2021-12-13 at 16.41.42.png

Some recent customer feedback encouraged us to make this move. We hope this makes it easier to see a holistic view of your sites and gets you to your sites quicker.

Let us know what you think and what else you might want to see on this section - just use the feedback button under your avatar menu.

We do have some thoughts for improvements, which are:

  • Ability to add a new site from the sites section
  • Add tags and filters



We've also released some fixes:

  • Fixed deployment status on main deployments page
  • Added a server user dropdown selection when running quick script commands

Adonis 4 Artifacts Path




Resolved an issue with Artifacts Path for Adonis v4 apps. There was an issue where removing the 'build' default didn't activate the correct directory when deploying.

Site server user and database validation




The associated server user a site is assigned to is now visible on the sites list rows.

CleanShot 2021-12-09 at 13.37.13.png




When adding a database during site creation, we now have validation to ensure the new database and database user are unique and don't already exist. Before, a dupe entry would be created in Cleavr, even though no new db or db user is actually added to the server. Which, made it difficult to remove the dupe in Cleavr without impacting the database on the server.
