Silly PHP upload limits
One of the things that I find really unhelpful is that PHP by default has a silly small upload limit, normally I get around this on a per site basis by editing .htaccess with the following,
php_value memory_limit = 500M
php_value upload_max_filesize =500M
php_value post_max_size =500M
However I can add some stuff to the end of /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini to make it a global change:
memory_limit = 500M
upload_max_filesize = 500M
post_max_size = 500M
Sentora / zPanel have some odd configuration choices as default, so we want to make some small changes.
Cull the Client notice text, by going to “Client Notice Manager” then delete the text, and save changes
We now make some changes to the “Module Admin”: Disable: Backups, Backup Config, Client Notice Manager, FAQ’s, PHPInfo, phpSysInfo, Theme Manager. Move: Shadowing to Reseller,
Now to Configure your Sentora Settings: From Address: [email protected]
From Name: Squashed Fly Min Password Length: 12
Before you can create any users, you will need to visit the Package Manager, and create some packages
Now create a Client for all your own accounts, and anyone else who needs access to the server, It is best to avoid using the zadmin account (Apache Config is the only thing that needs the zadmin access).
Under the mail settings change the quota for mail boxes, 200 mb is a little low!
So now you have a mostly working server with SSL on your control panel, SSL on Email, and set up SSL on all Client websites.
