This tutorial will walk you through installing the Yunohost Complete Server control panel on Debian. Just follow the tutorial and your server will be up and running in no time. These tutorials were tested using a 1024MB Vultr Instance running Debian 7 x64 (wheezy).
Yunohost is a server operating system that makes self hosting as easy as pie. It provides easy management of your server and allows for instant install of a wide variety of apps.
Connect to your server:
Install dependencies that are not automatically installed:
apt-get install sudo git
Remove Apache2 (Necessary for YunoHost):
apt-get remove apache2
Download the YunoHost install script from GitHub:
git clone https://github.com/YunoHost/install_script /tmp/install_script
Run the install script:
cd /tmp/install_script && sudo ./install_yunohostv2
Enter the following data when prompted:
1. Navigate to 'yes' and hit enter. 2. Again, navigate to 'yes' and hit enter. 3. Enter the domain that you wish to use for Yunohost. 4. Enter the password you wish to use for Yunohost.
Note: If you do not have a domain, enter
example.org. This means that to access Yunohost, you will have to use the IP of your server.
Congratulations! Yunohost is installed. Here is how to access and use it.
Upon first login, you should be presented with a dialogue box that asks you to create a user. Click on that link. (Screenshot)
Create a user. You will be assigning apps to this user.
For the purposes of this tutorial, I will be installing Wordpress - but you can choose any app that you would like to install.
Yunohost comes with a built-in monitoring and system statistics system (Cool, right?), however, this system is not enabled by default.
