Virtualmin Pro and Default Site

26 Mar

I decided to use Virtualmin Pro on my server in an attempt to streamline a lot of the aspects of managing a server mainly in an attempt to free me up to do other things. And after a weekend of on again off again working I’ve managed to come to a setup that I’m pleased with. Virtualmin Pro is pretty nice and the price is definitely reasonable. I recommend it if you don’t have the time or desire to manage a lot of minutiae about your server (although you still have to have a lot of knowledge).

The one note I wanted to make was that my initial attempts to get started were all foiled. It mainly revolved around using this domain (sharedpointer.com) as the servers FQDN and the trying to use the default apache site as that domain’s site. Instead I should have just created a virtual host to match that and disabled the default. In the end that’s what I did but I also used a separate sub-domain for the FQDN for the server while setting up Virtualmin. That extra step was probably unnecessary. But in the end I have sites and they have SSL certificates from Let’s Encrypt. Excellent.
