Changelog - 6 February 2024

Let's Encrypt SSL

  • Improved: New domain validation has been added for deploying Let's Encrypt SSL using the dns-01 authorization method. This ensures the DNS provider API, where the domain is managed, is valid.
  • Improved: Introduced the option to change the Authorization Method when editing a Let's Encrypt SSL. Users can switch between http-01 and dns-01 (or vice versa), which will be applied during the next SSL renewal or redeployment.
  • Improved: Added an indicator for when Let's Encrypt SSL needs to be redeployed for SSL Advanced (Business), such as after enabling the www or wildcard option.
  • Improved: Implemented notifications and an activity log for when Let's Encrypt SSL expires.

Server Provisioning

  • Improved: Added a Premium plan option for the Linode/Akamai Cloud server provider.

RunCloud Agent v2.8.1+2

This update will automatically be applied to your server within the next 72 hours. If you do not receive the update within this timeframe, please contact our support team, and they will assist you with a manual update of your server(s).

This new agent includes the following updates:

OpenLiteSpeed (OLS)

  • Fixed: A custom user's phpIniOverride configuration block in a web application could prevent the default RunCloud's phpIniOverride from applying to this web application.

Note: If you use a custom phpIniOverride in your OLS web application, it is recommended to update the RunCloud agent to v2.8.1 on your server. Then, use the Tools - Rebuild Web Application config feature to get the updated configuration.

File Manager

  • Fixed: The File Manager sometimes displayed incorrect file MIME types. For example, wasm files should show as application/wasm instead of application/octet-stream.

Changelog - 24 January 2024

Backup

  • Improved: We've implemented a new queue system that will automatically manage backups on your server. At present, we've set a limit of a maximum of 3 concurrent backup processes per server. Occasionally, you may notice a PENDING/QUEUE status on your latest backup snapshot.
  • Improved: A new retry mechanism has been introduced. Under certain circumstances, it will attempt to retry failed backup operations up to 3 times before marking them as failed. Occasionally, you may notice a RETRYING status on your latest backup snapshot.
  • Improved: For new backup snapshots, a "finished at" date and time will now be shown when you hover over the backup snapshot's date and time. This feature provides an estimation of the duration of the backup process, from queuing to completion.

Cloudflare Dashboard and Cloudflare API Service Issues

Cloudflare is currently experiencing issues with its dashboard and API (view status page).

We've deployed a hotfix to prevent our panel from throwing 500 errors due to the downtime with Cloudflare's API. However, the domains and DNS integration via Cloudflare will appear empty in your RunCloud dashboard as they rely on receiving responses from the Cloudflare API, which is currently unavailable.

Cloudflare is well aware of the issue and is working on getting to the bottom of it as soon as possible. They have a good reputation for handling infrastructure-related issues diligently, including proper post-mortems. 

On behalf of Cloudflare, thank you for your patience & we understand dealing with downtime is never easy. If any websites you host for others are affected, this would be a good time to send over an email to let them know if their sites are down proactively.
