Installed CWP on Azure VM. Next Steps?
« on: November 29, 2016, 01:12:46 PM »

After much work, I've finally successfully created and installed CWP on a Linux (CentOS 6.8) VM I made via Azure.

Everything seems ok, and I'm able to see the CentOS HTTP Test Page.

Take note of the following things:
1. Azure has set the Public IP of my server. I've set this to Statuc
2. Azure can be configured (and I have done so) to have a 'DNS Name'. It's a simple subdomain of azure.
3. I also have a different hostname which I checked before installing CWP. It's a long string and my VM has its own subdomain.

As far as I can tell, Azure can be configured to work as a DNS. But I don't think this is a good idea since I plan to host at least 3 different websites on the server (although all of them would be subdomains of my main website's domain name).

The plan is that we'll have a main website at; then various other website as;

This server will be exclusively for these websites. No need for different webpanel logins for each, since my team and I will be the only people doing anything on the panel.

All of our websites will be CodeIgniter (PHP) websites.

So what would be my next steps?

Do I create a new user? Then add domains? Should I make a new user for each of my websites (even though the other websites will be subdomains?) Then should I just upload via FTP after logging in as each user? How do I associate each domain name?

Note that I'm hosting my domain name somewhere else, and all I'll be able to edit on that end are the A-records and CNAME-records.

Any ideas how I should proceed?

if you will use for each subdomain different scripts then you can use different account for each subdomain.

for azure you will probably need to check that nat-ed mod is activated

dns you can use however you want, easiest is to use the same server for dns as then cwp will have all set and you will not need to do any manuall changes on the dns servers.

you can upload files in any way you want, ftp would be probably the easiest way.
