  • 1. Setting up a cheap VPS with Virtualmin to use alongside Aegir
    Check out the screencast at peterjolson.com
    Peter Olson
  • 2. In this video I will show you
    how to setup a VERY cheap VPS so that a vps-newbie can:
    Use a nice web interface (Virtualmin) to help manage their linux server
    and
    Use aegirto help with the creation, updating and overall managing of drupal websites.
  • 3. I am NOT going to:
    show you how to install aegir (see mig5’s video for that).
    show you how to completely use Virtualmin.
    show you how to use aegir.
  • 4. Burst.net
    Cheap $5.95USD per month VPS hosting
    How to get started with BurstNETvps
    How to setup linux on BurstNET
    How to access your BurstNETaccount
    https://www.burst.net/
  • 5. Burst.net
    I don’t know if BurstNETis anygood.
    I do know its cheap
    It got 'alright' reviews in several webhosting forums
    Biggest complaint was that it took forever to create an account after it was ordered… (mine took 3 hours.. Woopty-do)
  • 6. Burst.net – Oddity
    Weird!
  • 7. Burst.net – Account info
  • 8. BurstNET – VPS Control Panel
    Pretty basic
    No overusage notification features like Linode offers.
    If you installed the wrong OS to start out
    or just want a fresh start after messing around
    Go to: OS Reload
    Change or reinstall operating systems
  • 9. AutoPutty
    Downloads/Installs:
    Download and Install autoputty
    http://www.techmixer.com/autoputty-advanced-putty-connection-manager/
    Download and install portable putty
    http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/putty_portable
    Point autoputty at putty
    Point autoputty at VPS
    Name it whatever you want
    Hostname is the ip from the Burstnet email
    Username is ‘root’ (no quotes)
    Password from the Burstnet email
    Connect via SSH!!
  • 10. SSH on Burstnet VPS
    Reset root password
    Command: passwd
    Enter new password
    Don’t screw it up or you could lock yourself out
    Update linux for security reasons
    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade
  • 11. SSH – Start following Aegir Install
    Go here:
    http://groups.drupal.org/aegir-hosting-system/documentation
    Click on “Generic, Debian-based instructions”
    Install stuff:
    apt-get install apache2 php5 php5-cli php5-mysql mysql-server postfix
    Enter mysql root password
    Select postfix install type
    apt-get install sudogit-core unzip nano
    I added nano to this line. It is a good text editor for linux shell newbies

    With it, you can create servers spaces similar to the way WHM can with cpanel
    Can use webmin to help manage your linux server
    you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and much more
    Do stuff that beginners dislike doing via command line
  • 15. Virtualmin - install
    Go here: http://www.virtualmin.com
    Click the “Download” link, scroll to the bottom and right click on the link for "Linux and FreeBSD"
    Copy link location
    In putty:
    Type: “wget” (space afterwords & no quotes)
    Then paste the urlafter wget
    This will download the install script
    Install using the script
    Type: shinstall.sh
    Hit “y” to agree with stuff
    Wait… wait…
  • 16. Virtualmin - setup
    After its installed:
    Go to: https://yourip:10000
    Don’t forget the “s” in https
    Login using:
    username: root
    Password supplied in email (same one used in putty)
    Before doing the setup wizard
    Click on “webmin” -> “servers” -> “Mysql database server”
    Type in the password you entered in when installing mysql
    Go back to virtualmin
  • 17. Virtualmin- setup
    Set it up so as to use less memory
