Manage DNS Records using Webuzo

The Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical distributed naming system for computers, services, or any resource connected to the Internet or a private network. It associates various information with domain names assigned to each of the participating entities.

Domains play a key role when it comes to hosting a website over the web world and thus managing the DNS records for a particular domain manually can prove to be extremely tedious at times. Pointing domains to a particular IP includes adding an “A”, “AAAA”, CNAME”, etc record to the zone file of the particular domains so as to get it live and pointing to the respective IP.

WordPress + Lighttpd on Webuzo

Lighttpd Web ServerWordPress is web software you can use to create a beautiful website or blog. We like to say that WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time.

Lighttpd Web ServerA single WordPress consumes all the memory on a VPS as in and poorly managed Apache Setup. For this reason WordPress can be deployed easily using Lighttpd. With “lighty” the WordPress installation on a VPS works like a charm. Running multiple sites on a single VPS with just 1 GB RAM, what more can you expect from “Lighty”.

Lighttpd does not use a .htaccess file like Apache does, so you can consider writing your own rewrite rules and include them into the Lighttpd configuration and load all the necessary module to suit the requirements for the site. Webuzo Lighttpd Setup is pre-loaded to have WordPress up and running thus fulfilling the basic requirements.

Webuzo Application Manager provides the complete package to setup the LLMP (Linux, Lighttpd, MySQL and PHP ) Stack and WordPress just by a click of a button. The default installation of Webuzo serves Apache as the default Webserver.

Quick guide to have LLMP setup by default.

LLMP can be installed by a click for the Webuzo Enduser Panel as well as explained in the following tutorial.

Webuzo further allows users to switch among webservers (Apache / NGINX / Lighttpd) at any point of time by a click from the Webuzo Enduser Panel

Getting Started
1) Install LLMP from the Webuzo Enduser Panel >> Apps >> Stacks
Webuzo LLMP Install

2) Confirm whether the services are running from the Webuzo Enduser Panel >> Services Menu
Webuzo Lighttpd Service

3) If you are unable to find Lighttpd in the services and Apache/NGINX instead, you require to switch to Lighttpd as the webserver.

Click Install – WordPress + NGINX on Webuzo

While the LAMP stack is very popular (Linux + Apache + MySQL + PHP) for powering WordPress, a lot of people have started using Nginx in place of Apache. This tutorial aims to help those looking to configure WordPress with Nginx by a click with the Webuzo Application Manager.

Nginx will do little for your WordPress-based website’s performance. WordPress development is intertwined with the Apache world, and as a result, support for Nginx-based setups is limited; but it is growing.

Nginx works perfectly well with a wide variety of applications, and WordPress is certainly one of them. NginX’s configuration language is very powerful and straightforward if one is familiar with it, but often people coming from other servers are not sure how things work in NginX and just copy and paste whatever they see from a blog that seems to fill their needs.

Webuzo Application Manager provides the complete package to setup the LEMP (Linux, Nginx, MySQL and PHP ) Stack and WordPress just by a click of a button. The default installation of Webuzo serves Apache as the default Webserver.

Quick guide to have LEMP setup by default.

LEMP can be installed by a click for the Webuzo Enduser Panel as well as explained in the following tutorial.

Webuzo further allows users to switch among webservers at any point of time by a click from the Webuzo Enduser Panel
