How to Install ISPConfig 3 on Ubuntu 18.04

Tags: , , Date/Time: May 17, 2019 @ 9:18 am, by Rhyan Solomon

ISPConfig is arguably the most complete open source server administration control panel in existence. Developed by Till Brehm of projektfarm in 2005, it has stood the test of time and endured as the de facto favorite among serious self-hosters and hosting agencies alike.

Not only does ISPConfig offer a full-featured control panel for managing multiple servers, but it also includes support for a customer billing system, available as a paid module. That means you can use your server to run your own reseller hosting business at very little cost. The two other paid modules are the Migration Toolkit for moving your ISPConfig around, and the ISPProtect Malware Scanner module.

Hosting control panels like ISPConfig are designed to make managing a server easy by abstracting away the gnarly technical bits behind middle-man automation. That said, some people may be turned away from ISPConfig because it has an air of complexity about it, which is somewhat true.

ISPConfig gives you extremely fine-grained control over your server from its web-based control panel interface. Through this central interface, you can manage everything from per-website web server environments, email accounts, databases, FTP users, jailed SSH users, cron jobs, to DNS zone settings and more. The control panel supports four built-in user roles: administrator, reseller, client, and email user.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to install and configure the latest ISPConfig 3.1 on Ubuntu 18.04.

Installing ISPConfig3 on CentOS 7… or Not

Welcome to another LowEndBox tutorial- sort of. What started out as a tutorial for installing ISPConfig 3 on CentOS 7 has taken a drastic turn. Instead of telling you about how you can install ISPConfig 3, we’re going to take a deeper dive into what went into this article and why we’re not writing an installation tutorial. But first, a little bit of history.

Prehistoric Times

In the Mid-2000’s, I worked at a small web hosting company in Reno, NV. These were the days before VPSs ruled king. Virtualization was not yet mainstream and the only way to get a server online was to build a server with real hardware and install Linux on it. Seeing a need for a budget friendly way for folks to have their own servers, our company leveraged out of date hardware that we had on hand and launched a new product: Bargain Basement servers.

Truly, a Low End Box, early 2006. Source: Archive.org

Truly, a Low End Box, early 2006. Source: Archive.org

Instead of spending hundreds of dollars per month, we had servers for as little as $29/mo. The specs were minimal- not a lot of memory, fairly weak CPUs and small hard drives. Sound familiar? The parallels between those servers and what we embrace here at LowEndBox can be clearly seen.

How does this relate to ISPConfig? I’m glad you asked! During that same time period, there were not very many commercial web control panels. Plesk and cPanel were becoming established. Interworx and DirectAdmin were new, and Virtualmin was still a very early release that wasn’t on my radar.

I became aware of ISPConfig when it hit the market in 2005. ISPConfig was simple, lightweight, and seemed like a good fit for our Bargain Basement servers. And for a while, it was. ISPConfig was good and I enjoyed using it and setting it up for our customers who requested it. Newer releases started getting over-complicated however, and we stopped offering ISPConfig in favor of other software.

I left that company in 2008, and in the intervening years ISPConfig didn’t come up again. Now it’s 2019, and the market is nearly flooded with amazing web hosting control panel options. My task as a writer for LowEndBox was to examine ISPConfig 3 and help all of you nice people learn how to shoehorn it into your LowEndBox server. But that’s not what’s being written here. What happened?

How to Set Up a Node.js Application On Ubuntu 16.04 VPS

Tags: , , , , Date/Time: May 15, 2019 @ 3:35 pm, by Dusko Savic

How to Set Up a Node.js Application On Ubuntu 16.04 VPS

Node.js is an open source, cross platform, server side environment for building fast and scalable network applications. Node.js applications are written in JavaScript and executed by Google’s V8 JS engine. It effectively allows you to run JavaScript code on the server. Here are some of its main features:

  • Completely Asynchronous: all calls in Node.js are asynchronous, and thus do not block execution. This is achieved using Events and Promises, patterns native to the JavaScript language.
  • Single threaded: Node.js works only on a single thread, which fits well into its event driven architecture. Node.js applications are fast and scalable because they never buffer data.
  • Freely licensed: Node.js is released under the MIT license, so you can do almost anything with its source code.

If you need CPU intensive computations, Node.js may not be the right choice for you. It is severely limited by its use of only one thread, and you should probably use C++ or Python instead. Here is what kind of apps Node.js is the right fit for:

  • Web applications
  • I/O bound apps
  • API services

The list of companies that use it speaks volumes about its usefulness: PayPal, Netflix, Ebay, Walmart, Medium.com, Mozilla, NASA, Linkedin, Trello… You will also find thousands of individual projects written in Node.js as well.

What we are going to cover

  • installation of latest Node.js,
  • what is REPL and how to use it,
  • what are NPM packages and how to benefit from them,
  • creation of an example web app in Node.js

Node.js logo

Prerequisites

  • A clean VPS with root access,
  • running Ubuntu 16.04 with
  • at least 512MB RAM, 1GHz CPU and 20Gb disk space.
  • Understanding of JavaScript.
