MANAGING A SERVER

Summary

From the summary page, you will be able to view information regarding the servers spec and resource usage.

You can edit the server hostname from this page.

Services

Enable or disable the services of the server including Apache and MySQL.

CronJobs

Cron jobs are scheduled tasks that can be added to the server. For example, you can set a PHP script to be run at a specific time.

System Users

Add users who will be able to connect to the server over SSH.

When adding a user if SUDO is enabled then the user will have root privileges.

"SUDO without password" will allow users to execute SUDO commands without being prompted for a password.

Once a user is created you can manage their authorized keys by clicking the key icon next to their name.

Settings

Secure Shell

When working with a server that you need to jump into the command line from time to time.

This is possible via the terminal button on the server page.

For this to work you will need a ShiftEdit account. ShiftEdit is the original Web IDE, from the same company as ServerWand.

After pressing the terminal button for the first time you will be prompted to pick a System User to connect with.

You will then be asked to save the key and continue. This will automatically upload your ShiftEdit SSH key to the selected System User and then open a new terminal window.

If you ever need to connect as a different system user, you can clear the default user setting from the settings tab.
