WordPress VIP provides you with powerful capabilities for application management, delivering customer websites and applications with the highest degree of security, flexibility, and reliability. Application management with WordPress VIP optimizes security and software controls, streamlines developer agility, and helps scale WordPress deployments with ease.
The VIP Dashboard is a portal for application management on WordPress VIP. It is the gateway to the application tooling, flexible configuration, and powerful performance management capabilities of WordPress VIP.
The VIP Dashboard makes application management easy for even the most complicated of sites and codebases.
Manage WordPress multisites
Powerful tools to manage and launch WordPress multisites, providing visibility into your WordPress instance directly from the VIP Dashboard and allowing you to launch individual network sites to the public.
Configure cache behavior and manage cached objects in the VIP CDN. Purge one or more resource URLs for a WordPress or Node.js environment to improve website performance.
Optimize codebase management with plugin control, which covers updates and security vulnerabilities.
Easily manage software versions for WordPress, PHP, Node.js, and plugins.
Gain application insights
Monitor Runtime Logs, Slow Query Logs, and HTTP Response Codes for an environment from the last 24 hours to improve site and database performance.
Easily access a log of deployments for both WordPress and Node.js applications and roll back to a previous deployment whenever and wherever it’s needed.
Database and media controls
Move and manage your data across environments running on your developers’ local machines and on the VIP Platform with robust database and media access controls.
Access controlled and audited exports of databases running in production or non-production environments.
Use easy commands and tools to move databases between local and platform environments, giving developers access to the latest data for debugging.
Integrate content data with your business analysis system for a complete understanding of your business.
Basic Authentication gives you precise controls over users allowed to visit production environments.
Limit web and internet access to individual environments of an application, including to hosted files, by specifying a list of IP addresses—or ranges of IP addresses (aka subnets)—in the VIP Dashboard’s IP Allow List. These settings are valuable for sites with highly sensitive content, intranets, and non-production environments.
Help prevent security threats with management of HTTP Strict-Transport-Security (HSTS) measures.
Security and account governance
Add domains and easily install a Let’s Encrypt TLS certificate or a custom TLS certificate.
View an audit trail of all management actions that occur on your application for streamlined governance of application changes.
The WordPress VIP command-line interface (CLI) is one of the main tools developers use while managing applications and environments on WordPress VIP. It’s a powerful way to scale developer ops. The VIP-CLI also provides access to a rich and extensible set of commands for managing WordPress applications and operating on content at a massive scale, enabling batch operations across WordPress for reiterative adjustments to content and format.
Manage caching by purging one or more URLs sharing the same domain in a single command. Import and export database and media files.
Operate on WordPress content
Execute search and replace tasks on a SQL file prior to—or during—a file import.
Perform batch operations on WordPress content, such as adjusting tags across a site or changing a word on every post.
Identify potential issues to resolve
Scan your Node.js codebase and catch potential issues with building, deploying, or executing application code as expected before deployment.
Access and generate site backups
Ensure access to the latest application data during debugging and prepare for deployments whenever needed.
Retrieve a list of accessible VIP applications based on a user’s permissions and display details about the currently logged-in user.
VIP Local Development Environment
Create and control an environment that mimics an environment running on the VIP Platform. This extra layer of control streamlines local development, quick testing, and other activities— such as access to mailpit and a local version of enterprise search—where a local stack is more convenient than a pre-production environment with the VIP Local Development Environment.
Coming soon: Operate with the best development tools. Integrate with GitHub Codespaces to spin up a fully functional VIP development environment hosted on GitHub and accessible on web browsers.
Visual Studio Code
Easily launch Visual Studio Code from the VIP-CLI, optimizing development workflows and allowing developers to be more productive with the tools they know best while collaborating with their team.
Enjoy flexibility and extensibility with application management on easy production environments based on WordPress or Node.js. Quickly and confidently push changes to applications by accompanying non-production environments for quality assurance, testing, and debugging against an environment running on the same infrastructure as production, with access to a safe copy of production data.
Transient Platform Environments
Coming soon: Solve for development complexities and streamline application management with transient platform environments that can be tailored to even the most complex applications.
