HOW TO HOST A WEBSITE ON A VPS
Hosting a website on a VPS means that you have your own server, which is completely separate from the one that runs your business. This makes it easy to host multiple websites without having to worry about conflicting databases or other glitches. In this article, we’ll show you how simple it is!
To install Apache2, you’ll need to download the latest version of the following files:
- httpd-2.4.18-1~bpo60+1_amd64.deb (for Debian 9) or httpd-2.4.18-3_amd64_signed(1).deb (for Ubuntu 16.04) from http://www.apachefriendsfoundationorg/en/downloads/installation/.
- If your server is running CentOS 7 or Ubuntu 14 then use this link instead: https://www2uenprodulcejfkcozvwdkmwzjsgmzhjicmhgxrsctbmx?nocache=true&no_cache=true&publication_id=19546548
CREATE A DATABASE AND A USER
After you have installed WordPress, it is time to create a database and user. You can do this by going to the MySQL administration panel and creating a new user. The username should be something unique, such as your site name (for example, my domain name). The password should be at least eight characters long with mixed case letters and numbers in order to protect against hackers who may try cracking it. Make sure that when you set up your database permissions for other users on their workstation machines so they cannot access any files or folders outside of what was created within those folders themselves; otherwise there could be problems later down the road when trying out any themes that require editing CSS files directly from within their own personal directories instead of just downloading them through one central location like “/wp-content/themes/” etcetera.”
To install WordPress, you will need to use the cPanel. On this page, click on “Add Website” and then select “Website Installer” from the drop-down menu that pops up next to it.
Now that you have installed WordPress in a subdirectory (or subdomain), go ahead and create an account for yourself by entering your details into the signup box on the right-hand side of their website. This process can take anywhere between five minutes to half an hour depending on how many users are currently using it at any given time before yours! Once finished installing everything correctly into place, save your changes by clicking on Save Changes at the bottom right corner of the screen before moving on to Step 2 below!
CONFIGURE YOUR WEBSITE
In order to ensure that your website is working properly and that it can be hosted on a virtual private server, you should make sure that the following steps are completed:
- Make sure you’ve installed WordPress. It’s a great way to build websites quickly.
- Install a theme (if needed). A theme helps you customize the look and feel of your site with colors, fonts, and other features in just minutes!
- Set up the database for WordPress—this will allow users who visit your site through search engines like Google or Bing to see content from other websites as well as yours so they know what they’re looking at when they come across it online.”
Excitement, Happiness, Thrill, and Joy are the feelings that you will be experiencing when you host a website on a virtual private server.
