Installation

Open a Shell Terminal (e.g. PuTTY) and SSH to your server. Run the following commands:

wget -N http://files.webuzo.com/install.sh 
chmod 0755 install.sh 
./install.sh --v3 // This will install the LAMP Stack, DNS Server and FTP server along with Webuzo

OR

./install.sh --install=lamp,bind // This will install the LAMP Stack(softname -> lamp) and DNS Server
(softname -> bind) along with Webuzo.
Note : softname for Apps should be comma separated.
Get list of softnames for the Apps here : http://api.webuzo.com/apps.php

OR

./install.sh --install=none // This will install only Webuzo without any LAMP Stack.You can later install apps from the Apps Category in the Apps Panel.

The installation will begin immediately. It may seem that the installation has stopped, if your network speed is slow, but please let it continue. You will see something like this :

This will setup the required Web Server and other important configurations. Note : A log file of the installation process will be created - /root/webuzo-install.log

Login to the Admin Panel

To login to the Webuzo Admin Panel, visit the following URL :
https://Your-IP:2005/
OR
http://Your-IP:2004/
The username and password will be the root details of your server.

Panel Configuration

After the installation is completed we recommend you check the panel configuration. The Panel configuration is located at the Admin Panel -> Settings -> Panel Config. Please check the options there and correct anything which you feel is not correct as per the server.

Server IP, Hostname and Nameservers

Please enter a valid IP of this server and a hostname which will not be used by any user.
You will need to point your nameserver to the servers IP where you are installing Webuzo. Webuzo will ask you for the Primary Nameserver (e.g. ns1.example.com) and the Secondary Nameserver (e.g. ns2.example.com).

Create an Enduser

Now that the Panel is configured we will create endusers / shared hosting users. The Add User wizard is located inside the Admin Panel -> Users -> Add User. Its a simple wizard and you just need to enter the users domain, username, password, email. You can then choose a hosting plan if you have created any or manually assign the resources to the user. You can also automate the process and link your billing systems like WHMCS, Blesta, etc. Following is the screenshot of the Add User wizard.
