In this article we will learn what the Network Time protocol (NTP) is and how to install it on the two Linux distributions most commonly used on Liquid Web’s servers. We will be focusing on using CentOS 7 and Ubuntu 18.04 servers, but the process is largely the same on other recent versions of each. Before we start, make sure we are familiar with using SSH (Secure Shell) as we’ll need it to connect to the server. Here’s a link to one of our articles on the basics of SSH if you are unfamiliar with its usage.Continue reading “How to Install and Configuring NTP on CentOS and Ubuntu”
What is Webmin?Webmin is a browser-based graphical interface to help you administrate your Linux server. Much like cPanel or Plesk, Webmin allows you to set up and manage accounts, Apache, DNS zones, users and configurations. As these configurations can get somewhat complicated Webmin works to simplify this process. The result is fewer issues during server and domain setup. Which results in a stable server and a pleasant administration experience. Unlike Plesk or cPanel, Webmin is completely free and open to the public. Unfortunately, here at Liquid Web, we do not offer managed support for Webmin, but we are always willing to assist as much as possible when issues arise. You can download Webmin from their site. Also, you can find some excellent documentation on this interface. Continue reading “How To Set Up Multiple PHP Versions in Webmin”
IntroductionSNMP, or Simple Network Management Protocol, is widely used to communicate with and monitor network devices, dedicated servers, and more, all via IP. In this case, we’ll be installing an SNMP agent on a CentOS VPS server, which will allow for collection of data from our server, and make the information available to a remote SNMP manager.
- These instructions are intended for installing SNMP and doing a very basic configuration.
- I’ll be working from a Liquid Web Core Managed CentOS 6.5 server, and I’ll be logged in as root.
