Applications on Amezmo are backed by an optimzed Docker container instance. Each "instance" of an application is a isolated container running on reserved hardware resources. Amezmo was designed to run PHP apps.

All of the configuration required to run a production-ready PHP app is ready by default with little or no custom configuration reqired. Our system supports framework-specific configurations for frameworks such as CraftCMS, Laravel, and Yii.


  • MySQL 5.7
  • Nginx
  • Redis
  • development subdomain
  • Custom domains with SSL
  • Optimized PHP-FPM
  • Managed background workers
  • Managed Cron jobs

Amezmo is designed to be "locked down" by default. This means no root access. This is by design, and helps you, and the Amezmo team maintain a secure, and predictable environment for running PHP apps.
