Configuring Individual Virtual Servers

You can configure the PHP version being used for a specific Virtual Server by selecting Server Configuration -> PHP Options.

The first line there specifies what PHP version will be used by default.

If you wish, you can specify a different PHP version to be used for a specific directory.

DNS Slave Using Virtualmin

DNS Slave Auto-Configuration Quickstart

A quick guide to assist administrators who want to use Virtualmin’s automatic DNS slave configuration features. This allows for DNS server redundancy.

Introduction

Virtualmin can automatically manage any number of DNS slave servers for you. Once configured, it will create slave zones on other servers and configure them to automatically update when changes are made on your Virtualmin server. For this to work, you need Virtualmin on your primary server and Webmin (a free download) on your slave server(s). Henceforth, all references will refer to the primary server as the “Virtualmin server” and the DNS slave server as the “slave server”.

Getting Webmin for the Slave

If you don’t have Virtualmin installed on your slave server(s), you’ll need to install Webmin. Webmin is available for nearly every UNIX and Linux variant available, and is free to download and use. Continue reading “DNS Slave Using Virtualmin” »

Install nginx on virtualmin (GPL) server

Installing Nginx Support

Switching a system from the Apache webserver (installed by default by Virtualmin to Nginx should only be done if no virtual servers with websites have been created yet. Ideally the change should be done on a freshly installed system, running RHEL 6.0, CentOS 6.0 or Debian 6.0 or later. Virtualmin version 3.89 or above is also required.

The steps to remove Apache and install Nginx are :

  1. Shut down Apache with the command /etc/init.d/httpd stop ; service httpd off (on RHEL or CentOS), or /etc/init.d/apache2 stop ; update-rc.d apache2 remove (on Debian).
  2. Install Nginx with the command yum install nginx (on RHEL or CentOS) or apt-get install nginx (on Debian).
  3. Start the Nginx webserver with the command /etc/init.d/nginx start
  4. Install Virtualmin's Nginx plugin with the command yum install wbm-virtualmin-nginx wbm-virtualmin-nginx-ssl (on RHEL or CentOS) or apt-get install webmin-virtualmin-nginx webmin-virtualmin-nginx-ssl (on Debian). Continue reading “Install nginx on virtualmin (GPL) server” »
