Setting Var WW On Nginx Centos7
Var WW is a powerful tool used to configure and control Nginx websites. It provides technical and graphical interface to manage the Nginx web server. It can be used to configure many processes including setting up virtual hosts, configuring SSL certificates, the rewriting of URLs and the use of virtual domains. In this article, we look at how to install and configure Var WW on Centos7.
Before you proceed, you should ensure that your system meets all of the following requirements:
- Centos 7 installed.
- Nginx web server installed and configured.
- A user with root privileges, or access to the root user.
Install Var WW On Centos7
The first step is to install Var WW on your Centos7 system. You can do this using the yum package manager. To install Var WW, first convert the release version to an integer using the rpms command. For example, for version 7.0, you would enter:
Then, enter the following command:
yum install --enablerepo=extras varww. This will install the latest version of Var WW.
Once the installation is complete, start the Var WW service using the following command:
systemctl start varwwd.service. After that, enable the service to start automatically after a system reboot using the following command:
systemctl enable varwwd.service.
Setup a Virtual Host using Var WW
Now that Var WW is installed and running, we can now set up a virtual host using Var WW. To do this, we need to create a configuration file for the virtual host. This file will contain the configuration instructions that will be used by Nginx to serve the files from your virtual host.
First, create a directory for the configuration file. This directory must be named after the domain name of the virtual host. For example, if you are setting up a virtual host for example.com, then the directory name should be example.conf. To create the directory, enter the following command:
Next, create the configuration file by entering the following command:
vim /etc/nginx/conf.d/example.conf. This will open a text editor window, where you can add the configuration details for the virtual host. The configuration details should include the domain name, server name, and the location of the web files that will be served by the virtual host. Once the configuration is complete, save the file and exit the editor.
Next, open the Var WW web interface by entering the following URL in a web browser:
http://localhost:8080/. This will open the Var WW web page, from where you can control and configure Nginx websites. To create the virtual host, select the “Virtual Hosts” option from the left navigation menu.
On the next page, click the “Add” button to create a new virtual host. Here you will be prompted to enter the details of the virtual host that you configured in the configuration file. After entering the details, click the “Save” button to create the virtual host.
Test The Virtual Host
Once the virtual host is created, you can test it by accessing the web page from a web browser. To do this, enter the domain name of the virtual host in the address bar of the browser. If everything is configured correctly, the web page should be served from the virtual host.
Configure SSL Certificate Using Var WW
You can also configure an SSL certificate for the virtual host using Var WW. To do this, open the Var WW web interface and navigate to the “SSL Certificates” section. Here you can upload the certificate files and configure the details of the certificate.
Once the certificate is configured, click the “Save” button to save the changes. After that, you need to reload Nginx using the following command:
systemctl reload nginx.
