In this tutorial, we are going to explain how to Install Nginx with Engintron on a server with WHM/cPanel control panel installed.
Installing Nginx with Engintron to your cPanel server can take a few minutes and is a very easy process. Let’s get to work!
Table of Contents
- A server with at least 2GB of RAM
- Full SSH root access or a user with sudo privileges is also required.
- Installed WHM/cPanel control panel on the server
Update the System
Before we start with installation we need to update the system to be up to date
sudo yum update -y && sudo yum upgrade -y sudo /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/upcp
Installing the Engintron plugin
Once, the system is updated we can proceed with the installation process. First, go into the “root” directory on your server remove the old “engintron.sh” script if exists, and download the latest installation script:
cd / rm -f engintron.sh wget --no-check-certificate https://raw.githubusercontent.com/engintron/engintron/master/engintron.sh
Once, the script is downloaded You will need to execute the script and allow some time for the installation process to be completed:
bash engintron.sh install
If the installation is successful, you will see on the screen how services such as apache, tailwatchd, apache_php_fpm, and nginx are being restarted. You should see the following output at the end of the installation:
httpd started successfully. Redirecting to /bin/systemctl restart httpd.service Redirecting to /bin/systemctl restart nginx.service ************************************** * Installation Complete * **************************************
You can notice now, the Apache is listening on ports 8080 and 8443, and Nginx is set to ports 80 and 443. This tells us again that the installation of the Engintron is successful. To see this execute the command below:
netstat -tunlp | grep httpd && netstat -tunlp | grep nginx
To check the usage of Engintron, execute the following command on your server:
You should receive the following output:
