How do you manage these VPS especially when you’re running on multi-cloud?
ServerPilot is one of the tools.
For a start, you’ll need to provision a new VM running 64-bit Ubuntu 16.04.
In this example, I will create a GCP VM instance.
Once the VM instance is created successfully, now go to the ServerPilot’s Servers page and click + Connect Server.
As this VM is hosted on GCP and I do not have a root password, I use the manual installer to connect your server to ServerPilot.
ServerPilot will check the connection and begin the installation. It will also set up the firewall; PHP 5.4, 5.5, and 5.6; Apache configured with .htaccess and mod_rewrite enabled; NGINX; MySQL, etc.
After a few minutes for the installation to complete. Now, you’re ready to create your first app.
I’ll guide you thru creating new app on the next post.
