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 a user

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.
