There are many good low-end VPS provider over there with low cost, such as RamNode providing $2/month for their 128mb VPS, so the question is how can we do on a low-end CentOS server? Well, the answer is: you can run many websites on it with some tweak configurations. Let’s discover how to do this.
On CentOS 5
[bash]wget http://freevps.us/downloads/nginx-centos.sh -O – |bash[/bash]
[bash]wget http://www.comfortvps.com/script/shell/nginx/nginx-php-mysql.sh -O – |bash[/bash]
On CentOS 6
[bash]yum -y install wget –noplugins
wget freevps.us/downloads/nginx-centos-6.sh -O – |bash[/bash]
There might be some problems after the installing.
- If mysqld service cannot start due to the bug of no mysql user, run the post-installation scripts as follows: [bash]groupadd -g 89 mysql &>/dev/null
useradd -u 89 -g mysql -d /var/lib/mysql -s /bin/false mysql &>/dev/null
/usr/bin/mysql_install_db –user=mysql –basedir=/usr
chown -R mysql:mysql var/lib/mysql &>/dev/null[/bash]
- If you cannot access mysql due to root password, remember to reset mysql root password.
Well, finally, this is my server status after these installations
