This interface allows you to deploy applications with the Phusion Passenger® application server. A Phusion Passenger server functions as a process manager, reverse proxy, and provides operations tools to its users.

This interface works on servers that run Apache and Nginx.


This table contains the following information:

  • Name — The application’s name.
  • Domain — The application’s domain.
  • Path — The file where the application’s source code resides, relative to the home directory.
  • Status — Whether the application is enabled or disabled.
  • Actions — Use the items in this column to perform the following actions:
    • Edit — Edit the application.
    • Unregister — Unregister the application.
    • Enable Dependencies — Confirm and, if necessary, install an application’s Node.js package manager (npm) dependencies.
