Lifeboat - Deploy Web Apps Anywhere! Update Introduces Super Simple Sync

Rochester, NY – [I am] pleased to announce a major update to Lifeboat, the server management software! Lifeboat was created to help anyone that wants to write a web app deploy a web app. This latest version features improved SSH key management and a super simple cloud sync feature.

Lifeboat makes it simple to deploy and manage Xojo Web applications on any Linux server. Automate configuration and let Lifeboat juggle port assignments, system services, and reverse proxy software for running a web app server. Lifeboat is designed to deploy both Xojo Web 1.0 and Xojo Web 2.0 standalone applications.

Released today, Lifeboat’s newest features allow users to synchronize multiple computers with their existing cloud sync software. To aid in cross-machine connection, Lifeboat now manages and imports SSH keys. For additional peace of mind, Lifeboat now supports password protected OpenSSH keys.

Exciting new features:

  • Configure and capture PHP error logs
  • Installs PHP extension mbstring
  • Import and manage SSH keys
  • Super Simple Sync feature for cloud services
  • Fixed GMT offset errors worldwide

In addition to the Xojo Web specific tools, Lifeboat offers features to manage static websites. Install and configure SSL in one (or two) click(s) for free with LetsEncrypt integration. Serve static HTML or PHP files to offer visitors a main landing page (or more!)

Download and evaluate Lifeboat for free. For evaluation Lifeboat will configure one server, one web application, and one static files directory. A license is required to unlock these limits.
