You can easily add new applications in Pack, the Hipex Control Panel. In addition, you can modify certain settings later on, for example changing the [PHP] version and (dis)connecting New Relic.

In this article, we explain how you can add applications and how to manage them. We assume that you are logged into Pack. If you don’t have an account yet, you can create one here.

Create an application

We start with creating the application in Pack. Go to “add application” and select the server on which you want to add the new application.

Select the server and fill out the desired domain, if it's a production environment you'll want to turn on Uptime Monitoring. Add domain

When you want to address multiple domains or subdomains to the main domain (like just created) you can add these domains as ‘pointers’.

Add / select SSH domains

In this step, you can whether choose an existing user or create a new one. Moreover, you have the choice between logging in with a public key, a password or both.

Select PHP version

We offer you the possibility to make use of various PHP versions within your webshop. It offers many options, for example if the application is compatible with PHP 7.4, but a used plugin is not, you can choose to only run this plugin over the alternative PHP version. It allows you to set your application to the most recent PHP version so that the (outdated) plugin will continue to work properly.

You can easily adjust these settings later here.

New Relic and [Blackfire] are so-called ‘Application Performance Monitoring (APM)’ tools. In this article, we explain everything about these profilers, what they do and how you can set them.
