Feature Release 4.10.x

You may or may not know that FireupWP (now WPCD.Cloud) is based on the WPCloudDeploy plugin.

This plugin sees updates just about every month and we don’t always publish a corresponding update here for you.

So, let’s play catchup and give you some of the highlights since we last published a list of new features (4.6).

We’re basically going to give you a compendium of all the new features between 4.7 and 4.10.x but we’ll link out to the gory detailed release notes at the end of this article.


  • Add support for provider-based snapshots for certain providers including DigitalOcean and Linode. You can see which ones we’ve completed on the WPCD roadmap here: https://trello.com/c/h1PQXc3R/51-create-server-snapshots-and-backups-using-cloud-provider-tools
  • Options to update plugins and themes on sites including under the bulk actions menu.
  • Add option to schedule a daily site sync to a destination server.
  • Allow downloads of additional server logs related to upgrades / unattended upgrades.
  • Give user the option to run server updates almost immediately by scheduling a one-off cron process to run updates within 1 minute of the user’s request.
  • Add option to install callbacks from the server list BULK ACTIONS drop-down.
  • Add option to soft reboot servers from the server list BULK ACTIONS drop-down.
  • Add option to remove the Malware Scanner Metas.


  • Show the number of non-security updates in the health column on server list screen.
  • Add bulk options to pending log list to change state.
  • Copy a site to another site, overwriting it. Provides the basis for staging sites in the way most devs expect them to work.
  • Nightly callbacks now push the number of themes and plugin updates pending for each site. This requires you to remove your existing callbacks and reinstall them.
  • Add count of notes to server and app list.

Not all new and enhanced features make it into WPCD.Cloud – those that don’t make it in are generally not appropriate for an SaaS service.
