Webdock Compatibility Guide

Last updated: March 4th 2021


Webdock is compatible with 99% of all web application software but there are a few exceptions. Our primary limitation is that we only support Ubuntu as the Operating System. If you have software that cannot run on Ubuntu, it will not run on Webdock.

Operating Systems

As mentioned, Webdock only supports Ubuntu. That means you cannot install Windows, CentOS, Debian or any other flavor of Linux on Webdock servers.

Incompatible Control Panels

Certain control panels will not run on a Webdock server due to one of the reasons listed on this page, namely cPanel. For a full list of Control Panels which work, and which do not work, on Webdock, click here.

Known Issues with Docker

If your Docker application uses overlay2 as the filesystem then this is not supported on Webdock at the moment. This is due to incompatibility in some upstream kernel code which we cannot do anything about.

You cannot use the ZFS filesystem

As your VPS is already running on ZFS underneath you cannot instantiate your own ZFS filesystem in a Webdock server. This is due to a fundamental limitation which means that nested ZFS filesystems are simply not possible.
