When your server has reaches status “Active” on the Gridpane Server tab, click its name to bring up the Server Configuration popup, then take these steps:
- On the Backups tab, enable “Enable Backups v2”.
- On the MySQL tab, enable “slow_query_log”, change the time to “2” and click the “Update” button, and when those actions are done, click the “Restart MySQL” button.
- Close the Server Configuration popup.
Now, SSH into wms001.webmagic.studio, and execute these commands, making sure to replace “target-host.webmagic.studio” with your new server hostname:
cd /root/rootfiles/ scp -pr -i ~/.ssh/WMSkey1 * email@example.com:/
Now, SSH into backup1.webmagic.studio. Edit file “/etc/fail2ban/jail.local” and add the new server’s IP address to the end of the list of IPs on the “ignoreip” configuration item.
SSH into the new server and execute these commands one at a time, checking the output for errors (there shouldn’t be any, but just in case):
fail2ban-client -d && service fail2ban restart apt-get install bash-completion gp stack maldet -install gp site all-sites -maldet-scan
Now we need to adjust the UFW firewall because it has some unnecessary ports open. Use the following command to list the configured ports:
ufw status numbered
There should be a total of 8 “allow in from anywhere” rules, an IPV4 and IPV6 entry for ports 22, 80, 443, and 2812. There should be no other rules besides those 8. If there are, you can delete them by number:
ufw delete <n>
…where <n> is the rule number from the first column of the status output. Go ahead and delete the unnecessary rules, but be careful…after deleting a rule, the list gets renumbered, so reissue the
ufw status numbered command after every delete to be sure you are deleting the correct rules.
