RunCloud.io for php web servers
I've been looking and testing different solutions to control some web servers I have. Tried all the free ones, but did not find any that fitted my use case and requirements 100 percent. Some of the requirements I had was things like:
- Should be able to control multiple websites - with possibility for multiple user management (FTP accounts per site/application).
- Majority of app's hosted will be php with or without a DB - the platform should support that.
- Script installer would be nice, but not a "must have".
- Server statistics and logs should be available within the solution.
- Easy deployment of SSL to the app's.
- Platform should support Cloud hosting providers (like Vultr & Linode), but also my home lab that runs on VMware vSphere Hypervisor.
First one I tested was ServerPilot.io. The platform is really nice and get's the job done in regards to my requirements. Sadly the price structure is a bit heavy as they charge $10 per server - that's a bit too much if you ask me.
I then tested out Runcloud.io (referral link) which has a much better price structure, as they only charge $10 for unlimited servers, with all features included. Because of the price and features between ServerPilot and RunCloud being almost the same, I went with RunCloud as my provider. Below you'll find some screenshots from RunCloud and the price structure of the two providers for reference.

There's many more features than what I provided as screenshots here, so I advice you to test them out. You get a 5 day free Pro trial (after the 5 days your servers will just be downgraded to the free package - no lost data) just by signing up and if you use my referral link HERE you'll get an extra 15 days for free If you decide to buy the Pro package.
