Many of you have asked me that now I have a VPS but I don’t know what to use it for. So, today I will guide you to create a Web Server on VPS with Hostvn Script for you to use!
What is web server?
Web Server is a computer software capable of accepting requests from various Internet protocols including: HTTP/HTTPS
Webs Server can be used to make a website like Anonyviet or do Cloud Storage like NextCloud, Google Drive or an Online Shop, … etc.
What is Hostvn Script?
Hostvn Script is a panel on Linux that helps you quickly create Web Server and has built-in management tools. Because Hostvn Script is a Panel without an interface, it does not consume much RAM and VPS space.
Especially, Hostvn Script has built-in a lot of optimization tools for Website to help your website work faster, safer and more secure.
- VPS using CentOS 7 and Ubuntu 18.04, 20.04, 21.04, Debian 10 have not installed any services. (see how to register VPS at Vultr)
- Minimum RAM 512MB
- Use the root account.
Instructions for installing Webserver on VPS
In this article, I will guide you to install HOSTVN SCRIPT!
Step 1: Install HOSTVN SCRIPT with the following command:
wget http://scripts.hostvn.net/install && bash install
This took a while to install, everyone
Step 2: Enter your Email
Step 3: enter the VPS’s public IPv4 address
Step 4: this will force people to change the SSH port, but I advise you not to change it (if you change the SSH port, it’s 8282), choose the number first
Step 5: Install the PHP version you want to install. If you want to be stable, choose php7.4, choose 2
After this they will ask if you want to install another version of PHP. I don’t need to choose 2 Please!
That’s it, the installation is done. This part is going to take a while, folks.
Install wordpress on Web Server
Step 1: run HostVN Script with the following command
Step 2: here, you choose first to manage domain names
Step 3: Select more domain name by selecting number 2
Step 4: Enter your domain name. For those of you who do not have a domain name, you can see more instructions on getting a free domain name from Freenom here. Remember to point the domain name to the VPS’s IP first.
Step 5: choose the source code to use (I use wordpress, so choose 1)
Step 6: they will ask if a database is available, then choose y
If so, they will ask to create a random database name. This is up to each person, choose y always give fast
Next will generate a random password. This is up to everyone
