To install SitePad on a VPS (Virtual Private Server) using the terminal, you’ll need to follow a series of steps. SitePad is a website builder that integrates with popular control panels like cPanel, Plesk, and DirectAdmin. Below is a step-by-step tutorial on how to install SitePad on a VPS using a typical LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack. In this example, we’ll use a Linux-based VPS with SSH access.
Note: This tutorial assumes you already have a VPS with SSH access. If you don’t, you should first set up a VPS and configure SSH access.
Before starting the installation, make sure ionCube Loaders are enabled.
- Login to WHM (root)
- Go to Server Configuration -> Tweak Settings -> PHP
- Select ioncube check box for cPanel PHP loader.
- Click on Save button.
That’s it. This will enable Ioncube for you in 3rd party PHP binary.
