I have a root server from One & One
and it has Ensim WEBppliance installed. This is excellend software for managing sites and hosting plans between domains, all on one server. Despite the fact that I'm a linux newbie, this is what I've figured out so far about the way it works: The default directories for each site are created using a template. These include all the standard directories, such as usr, var, etc, tmp and all the rest. Here's what things look like on my server, in the virtual root for site3
[root@myserver fst]# pwd
[root@myserver fst]# ls -Soh
drwxr-xr-x 2 root 4.0k Jul 8 12:33 bin
drwxr-xr-x 3 root 4.0k Jul 8 12:33 dev
drwxr-xr-x 14 root 4.0k Jul 27 14:27 etc
drwxr-x--x 5 admin3 4.0k Jul 25 19:32 home
drwxr-xr-x 3 root 4.0k Jul 8 12:33 lib
drwxr-xr-x 2 root 4.0k Jul 8 12:33 sbin
drwxrwxrwt 2 admin3 4.0k Jul 8 12:33 tmp
drwxr-xr-x 12 root 4.0k Jul 27 11:55 usr
drwxr-xr-x 11 root 4.0k Jul 27 17:40 var
I've figured everything out up to here. I now have two problems and a question, which are all fairly different, but are there because of the way things are structured.
I think Webmin rocks (Especially when you're lame, like me). I installed it fine on the server, but it's only accessible through the default address of the server https://username.pureserver.info:10000
- Ideally, I'd like a seperate version running for each site I have, accessible by domain1.com:10000
. I may also want to install various other programs on a per-site basis, rather that server-wide. Would this be possible?
Looking at problem 1, you can see I have SSL installed, working with Apache. I've installed osCommerce
onto one of my sites (no problem), but cannot get it to work with an SSL connection. I haven't really tried to get it working as I wouldn't know where to start. phpMyAdmin also uses an SSL connection, but it's created and managed by the Ensim software. How would I go about setting any web page up to use SSL?
If anyone has any experience with the Ensim software, maybe they can help. Some of the programs which are created are a little old to say the least, which could do with an update or two - How can I update these in Ensim's template file system?
Any help, however simple, would be mostly appreciated (cos I sure need it!).
