Sentora is a free to download and use web hosting control panel developed for Linux, UNIX, and BSD based servers or computers. The Sentora software can turn a domestic or commercial server into a fully fledged, easy to use and manage web hosting server.
If you wish to view the docs page for Sentora, please see the link below.
To start with, I assume you have a minimal install of your Ubuntu 14.01. If you have not yet, please see the pre-requirements below:
- We recommend a minimal distribution installation.
- There can be no other server management panel installed prior to installing Sentora.
- There can be no other web services (Examples: Nginx, MySQL, Apache, PHP, FTP Server, Mail Server, etc.) installed prior to installing Sentora.
If you are ready, run the command below using root credential.
# bash <(curl -L -Ss http://sentora.org/install)
Once completed. Ensure to copy all the password Sentora provided, then restart your server.
By default, Sentora has PHP version is 5.5.9-1ubuntu4.27, so let us try to upgrade to version 7.1 instead. To do so, please run these commands below.
Make sure everything is up to date
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
Add the deb.sury.org PPA:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php
Run the following if add-apt-repository isn’t found. This will install it via the python-software-properties package:
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
Run an update so the packages appear:
sudo apt-get update
Install PHP 7.1:
sudo apt-get install -y php7.1 php7.1-mcrypt php7.1-mbstring php7.1-curl php7.1-cli php7.1-mysql php7.1-gd php7.1-intl php7.1-xsl php7.1-zip libapache2-mod-php7.1
Run these commands to finalize your changes.
sudo a2dismod php5 sudo a2enmod php7.1 sudo service apache2 restart
From here, you should have a working Sentora Panel with PHP Version 7.1.28-1+ubuntu14.04.1+deb.sury.org+3
