The initial root password to your server can be found in your control panel, we recommend to change this password later. Copy the password and enter the server console in the upper right corner of the menu:

Go to console

A remote server console will be opened. You’ll need to enter login: “root” and the password.

Next, you will be asked to enter server IP, license key and domain, if you need an SSL Certificate. Everything else will be done by the script itself:

Single-click installation will:

  • Install the latest versions of Nginx, MariaDB, Redis, PHP 7
  • Configure Nginx, PHP-FPM, MariaDB
  • Install Monit to monitor Nginx, MariaDB and PHP-FPM
  • Configure firewall
  • Connect a free SSL certificate from Let’s Encrypt (with automatic extension)
  • Install Keitaro TDS.

Note: The script closes all ports except 22, 3333 (FriendsHosting SSH), 80, 443. If your SSH is installed on a non-standard port, you will lose access to the console.
