So it is time to add your first website onto zPanel. Just follow these steps to add new sites:
Step 1 – Go to Domain Management » Domains. Enter your domain name in the Domain name: field. In the Home Directory choose Create a new home directory.
Hit the Create button.
Step 2 – Then go to Server Admin » zPanel Config. Scroll down the page till you see the ZPanel Daemon section. Click the Go button at Run Daemon Now. (outdated)
Step 3 – A new window will appear. Click the Run Now button to execute the daemon.
Once succeed, you’ll see something like this:
Step 4 – Then go again to Domain Management » Domains and make sure the status of your website is now Live.
Step 5 – Navigate to Domain Management » DNS Manager. Select your domain name and click the Edit button.
Step 6 – From there, click the Create Records button.
Step 7 – Next, you will see the main DNS Manager page where you can add, edit or delete DNS records. If you don’t add any, simply leave it as it is.
Step 8 – If you need an FTP account, go to File Management » FTP Accounts and create new one:
Type in your username and password. In Access Type choose Full Access while in How Directorychoose Use Domain Directory and pick your site’s directory. Once done hit the Create button.
Step 9 – If your scripts you are going to host in your server need MYSQL database, then you can create it via Database Management » MYSQL Database.
Give your database a name. If you named it as “wordpress“, then the real usable name of that database is “zadmin_wordpress”.
Finally hit the Create button.
Step 10 – Now create new MYSQL user and assign that to newly created database. Go to Database Management » MYSQL Users. Do not forget to Map that MYSQL database to correct MYSQL database.
That’s it for now
