Introducing longer running Shifter WordPress containers

Be popular demand, we’ve updated Shifter’s container runtime so you can get more done.

Previous to this update Shifter would run WordPress a max time of 60 minutes before powering down. We’ve extended this to 180 minutes (3 hours) of normal operation.

Also, we added a function that will watch for inactivity in the WordPress admin. After 10 minutes of inactivity or leaving the WordPress Dashboard, Shifter will power down.

We hope you enjoy these additions to make it easier managing content and keeping your WordPress sites more secure.

Release Notes

  • Extended Shifter Container to 180 minutes
  • Added watch function to power down Shifter Container after 10 minutes of inactivity
