Lifeboat makes it simple to deploy and manage your Xojo Web applications on a Linux server. Connect to a fresh server and Lifeboat will install the components necessary to run and manage Xojo Web apps.
Lifeboat offers many features to save developers time and energy!
Lifeboat automates the retrieval, installation, and renewal of SSL certificates. With no cost for the developer, certificates are issued by the Let's Encrypt project. Lifeboat schedules regular renewals of all certificates on the server.
Take the headaches out of securing your web app, Lifeboat makes it a simple popup menu.
Lifeboat is equipped with an efficient upload system that identifies files that have not changed. Libraries that have not changed on the server are duplicated instead of being re-uploaded. Once uploaded, the smart staging system is able to Stop 'n' Swop the web app for just seconds of downtime.
Set up load balancing by increasing the running instances of your web app. Lifeboat handles the configuration files, port assignments, and system services.
Serve static files from nginx to offload stress from the Xojo Web App. This allows professionals to serve additional resources faster. Serving resources from nginx can improve Web App speed and loading times.
Let Lifeboat oversee your server and take a load off ;-)
