We Apologise for the Slight Pause in Transmission

Hey folks, guv here!

Been a bit busy last few days, catching up with the video to date for the VPS Bible series.

…so that's why blog posting's a bit delayed.

… Just thought I'd let you know I hadn't fallen over.

Setup Unmanaged VPS (4 Noobs!) ... with vpsBible
Secure WordPress. Properly. ... with wpCop, the platform's dedicated security website
Olly 'the_guv' Connelly's vpsBible.com site and 'WordPress 3 Ultimate Security' book.

Anyway, uploading the videos today for Parts 5 – 13, then will embed those later, and that will be useful for many of you.

Then it's time for the VPS home stretch. At ruddy last 🙂

Wondering what on earth I'm going on about? (A not uncommon occurrence.) I'll add the series index below.

Useful as this is clearly proving to be, have to say it'll be good to be blogging 'bout something else again. But first up, this series must rise and shine.

Ciao for now.

SETUP an Unmanaged VPS (4 Newbies)
The V-P-S Bible

Serve multi sites & blogs on a budget … at the fastest possible speed … with the least downtime … in the most secure environment … and future-proofed for easy admin.

That's what the VPS Bible is about, stepped out in simple copy-paste guides.

From high traffic WordPress blogs to startup web hosts, here's what you need.

Something missing? Crack out a comment and let me know.

Over at vpsBible, there's also a growing library of post-installation server maintenance guides. Here's a taste …

  • nginx control panel image

    Appendix 1a: Nginx Control Panel

    You’re migrating shared-to-VPS and want a GUI like cPanel? No you don’t, not after you read this! What’s more, you don’t need one either.

  • nginx control panel image

    Appendix 1b: Nginx Control Panel Workarounds

    For every control panel module there's an equivalent terminal command. They're all linked from here so, hey, no excuses!

  • web sites folder structure image

    Appendix 2: Add Web Sites Nginx Cheatsheet

    Once you’ve set up your first site, adding more gets easier. Especially when you can refer to this. (Let's face it, I'm just too good to you.)

    big cheers kajdo, really appreciate that.

    the moving day tutorial – er, which i have yet to write, although it’s mapped out – should contain all the info you need. BUT. if there’s anything missing, pls lemme know and i’ll ammend it.

    tell me, out of interest, have you followed this all the way through? any problems? which VPS provider?

    best to you, Sir.

    EDIT: aah, just read your comment! local or whatever, the principle is the same. for local, darn, that’s sooo easy. Part 18 will cover that but, as I say, any q’s …

    oh … think i got it wrong.

    do you think about a tut how to “move” from a local setup with all your changes to a vps-provider like linode? -> That would be awesome

    can’t wait for Part 18: Moving Day! How to Move Your Blog or Site …

    great work!
