Deloryan Posted April 7, 2018 Share Posted April 7, 2018 Hey guys, I've made a new server for Horse Reality at the beginning of March. I've installed php, apache and that stuff, but I'm really not that good at it and could really use some help. Normally I'd ask my boyfriend who is a full-stack developer, but he grew rather tired of helping me with Horse Reality :') Which is why I'm reaching out here. And actually need help with that ASAP. I'm looking for someone who has done this more often and is trustworthy. If this works out, I'll probably ask your help more often for updating and such. We've got a CentOS 7.4 x64 server from Digital Ocean btw. I followed their install guide, but I'm not completely sure if I've done it properly. I want to get this server ready as the "base" for all following servers. There is some kind of "cloning" option on Digital Ocean, so I want to use that so I/we can easily get the next servers ready. This server will become the Dutch server for HR and I'll need 2 more, 1 for testing and 1 for the international version. Things I still need to get done: install GD for images not sure if I did the whole SSH thing correctly get PHP to 5.6 instead of 5.4 (tried it multiple times, but it's still on 5.4 according to the phpinfo file. Also, I need to update my code first in order for it to work with PHP 7+ I'm still working on that) install something like DirectAdmin or Cpanel (my old server has direct admin) Make sure the server is safe If this server is done and works fine, it'll be the Dutch server for HR, then we need to clone 2 other ones. Get the GIT repo working so that if I commit/push something, it automatically goes to the testing server. If the code is working like it should on the testing server, be able to push it to LIVE somewhere (i.e. something like Beanstalk or just from the terminal). Move the current websites to the new server(s). More might come up, this is just off the top of my head. I also might need help later on as I want to cache all images from HR, the how and where is something where I could need help with. But atm we retrieve all images every time, rather than cache them, which uses a lot of data on our servers' end. Thanks a lot! I'm looking forward to your replies and proposals.Please note: from April 28th until May 18th, I'll be on a holiday in Japan. I'm hoping to get it all ready before then, but if that's not possible we just have to postpone it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
