Q&A: ehcp installation for newbie
I'm running an ubuntu server at my house and I'd like to easily set up websites and manage MySQL DB's. It looks like this control panel can help me with all that, but I want to be sure that everything works correctly. Do you have a howto or some way to walk me through the complete setup. I dont mean just ehcp, but also mysql and apache and what not, all the things i'll need. I'm very new to linux and its a daunting task to say the least.
Thanks for any help you can provide!
You say " I dont mean just ehcp, but also mysql and apache and what not, all the things i'll need.".
In fact ehcp installer also installs and configures apache, mysql, dns and almost all thing for a normal hosting operation.
So, by running ehcp installer, you will have apache, mysql, dns, php, mail server, all setup and ready to be used.
What ehcp does not install yet is: Spam protection, firewall. These may be seen as a non-essential for a beginner hosting operation, and since they require some complex configuration, They are not integrated into ehcp by default.
