    It has been almost 2 years since the last update of Laragon. However, the core of Laragon is so powerful and stable that you can control/update everything yourself.

    Today, I am happy to announce the release of Laragon 5.0. This release added "Quick Linux server" feature in Menu > Quick Linux server

    If you need to upgrade, please check:

    Quick Linux server:

    7 years ago I created Laragon as a modern development environment for Windows. Now, from Laragon 5, I will help you with Linux. I build Laragon for Windows but actually Linux is in my DNA as I architect and scale complex distributed microservices system with many production Kubernetes clusters distributed across the globe with 20+ Data Centers, 10,000+ containers, thousands of databases, ~100 microservices composed by different stacks (PHP, Java, Ruby, Node.js, Golang, Python) and various technologies for large scale and enterprise system (Kafka, Solr, ClickHouse,...)

    This release of Laragon includes a tool calls bitmana which helps you create Linux servers extremely fast with very low cost (you can have a VPS with just $1/month and scale it effortlessly). It also helps us to operate our VPS servers easily with effortless control.
    You can try it free yourself. Let me show how cool it is:

    1. Register an accout at: https://app.bitmana.io
      It is quick, only provide YOUR-EMAIL

    2. Open Laragon's Terminal, and type:

    bitmana link YOUR-EMAIL
    

    Input your password and press Enter
    It will authenticate your system with bitmana.io

    1. Create a LAMP server:
    bitmana cs lamp
    

    lamp = LAMP stack. Just a few seconds, you have a server with Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP, composer

    Note your NODE_ID -> Id: xxxxx

    1. By default, your server is secure, to expose port 80, type:
    bitmana expose NODE_ID 80
    

    Note the exposed Url

    1. Browser the exposed Url, you'll see something like this:
    Welcome to Bitmana!
    If you see this page, the web server is successfully installed and working.
    

    It's cool, huh.
    Because your system is authenticated with bitmana.io, you can also ssh to the server with ease: bitmana ssh NODE_ID
    or run commands without accessing your server bitmana exec NODE_ID "service apache2 status; composer --version"
    or type bitmana info to list your servers.

    You can type: bitmana for more commands.

    Run commands without accessing your server:

    bitmana exec 67887 "service apache2 status; composer --version"
    

    67887 is NODE_ID
    "service apache2 status; composer --version" -> 2 commands with are seperated by semicolon
    0_1621973583620_upload-750ec933-899c-46f2-90aa-88bb8384213f

    SSH to your server:

    bitmana ssh 67887
    

    67887 is NODE_ID
    0_1621973707203_upload-030ee250-f136-4f8e-ad6b-9e9cc93fcb3b

    Hi @leokhoa ,

    may I ask what's your relation to Bitmana? The service looks great, the interface created by jelastic.com is excellent.

    The support however is underwhelming and a lot of things are just not working. Before the trial period ended I topped up my account, the nodes were stopped anyway (that's a no-go!) and until today I still haven't heard anything from anyone and the servers are still stopped. My top-up balance is still floating somewhere (definitely not on my PayPal account anymore, but apparently not good enough to pay for the nodes). And although I wrote two tickets (one last week, the other yesterday) I haven't heard anything back.

    Hi @URehni : I helped creating the bitmana cli to make thing easier to developers. It is awesome so I hope it to be popular. It seems that your issues has been sorted.

    Hi @leokhoa,

    yes, the issue has been sorted. Thank you. It is an awesome service indeed, but for production environments the support has to get better an the teething problems have to be ironed out. We really would like to support you for all the good you did with Laragon. But at the current state, if we wanted to move our production webservices, CloudJiffy would probably be the better choice.

    Keep it up, it can be awesome!

    It begs the question, is Laragon suited to a production environment? I understood it was a development stack.
