This app is targeted at users who want a managed WordPress installation. The Cloudron team tracks upstream WordPress releases and publishes updates. The WordPress code is read-only and you have to extend WordPress using plugins. If you require full control over the plugins and the WordPress code, use the WordPress (unmanaged) app instead.
The WordPress admin page is located
The app can be uploaded using an SFTP client like FileZilla.
You can find the SFTP login details when clicking on the
i icon in the app grid.
WordPress memory limit
The PHP memory limit is configured to match the app's memory limit. To increase WordPress memory limit, change the app's memory limit.
Cloudron app is setup so that WordPress automatically sets
WP_MEMORY_LIMIT option to match the PHP memory limit.
The app is configured to run WordPress cron tasks every 5 minutes.
To run the cron tasks manually run the following command using the Web terminal:
sudo -u www-data /app/code/wp cron event run --due-now
WordPress' built-in cron task schedule
wp-cron is disabled since
it is not effective
for low traffic websites.
Cloudron does not support plugins that modify the code. Code is read-only and immutable. This property is essential for Cloudron to update apps correctly.
Use the WordPress (unmanaged) app as an alternative to install plugins that modify the code.
A list of plugins known to not work can be found here.
GTmetrix is a great site for getting performance metrics on the WordPress installation.
To set the expires headers for all pages, the WP Fastest Cache plugin can be installed.
Cloudron does not support PHPMyAdmin. It is, however, possible to access the database using other methods:
Open a Web terminal and press the 'MySQL' button to get console access. You can execute SQL commands directly.
Use a plugin like ARI Adminer for a GUI.
Additional php settings can be configured, when running the cli with
php -d key=value:
sudo -u www-data php -d max_execution_time=100 /app/code/wp
In this case setting the maximum execution timeout to 100 seconds.
#example php_value post_max_size 600M php_value upload_max_filesize 600M php_value memory_limit 128M php_value max_execution_time 300 php_value max_input_time 300 php_value session.gc_maxlifetime 1200
