DirectAdmin is an alternative control panel to cPanel/WHM. This installation guide will outline how to install DirectAdmin control panel on CentOS 7 64bit server. I will be using a Las Vegas BuyVM.net 1GB dedicated KVM Slice VPS server which costs US$3.50/month – they also generously offer a free DirectAdmin license with every VPS server.
Made use of ssdnode’s 4 CPU KVM VPS with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and LXD containers to create several LXD containers to compare several CentOS and Ubuntu LEMP stacks, Centmin Mod, EasyEngine, Webinoly, VestaCP and OneInStack. The bnchmark compare Nginx non-HTTPS and HTTP/2 HTTPS based performance.
This WordPress site was created using Centmin Mod’s centmin.sh menu option 22 automatic WordPress installer routine and hosted on a Upcloud.com KVM VPS server running Centmin Mod Nginx, PHP-FPM, MariaDB MySQL on CentOS 7 64bit server paired with Cloudflare free plan.
The initial Centmin Mod install guide and the Getting Started guide outline the normal way of installing Centmin Mod LEMP stack on CentOS 7.x 64bit based server. However, there’s additional steps you can do to further customise your Centmin Mod LEMP default out of the box configuration and to enable additional optional features.
