Ethical Use Of Software
Webinoly is an Enterprise Grade Tool with full commitment to transparency.

We are very serious about the package selection we use to build your server LEMP stack, we always use official and well-known sources (PPA’s).

It’s important to us that you know that we never compile or modify these packages and we never include or use any third-party untrusted software.

How can I install and configure all the necessary packages for my web server?

During the initial installation of Webinoly, you have the option to do it completely (option 1-4) with all the packages required for the configuration of your web server; you can also choose to do a manual installation (option 0) and only install Webinoly.

If you still do not install Webinoly, I recommend you first read the documentation about the installation. That way, just by executing a command, you can have your web server fully configured.

If you decided to do a manual installation it would allow you to choose which packages are installed and configured on your server.

Install Nginx

sudo stack -nginx

Stable Nginx branch is used by default.

# To install "Mainline" Nginx version:
sudo stack -nginx=mainline

# LEMP
sudo stack -lemp=mainline

* Also, you can change the Nginx branch in the Webinoly Configuration file.

Install PHP

sudo stack -php

When Nginx is not installed Webinoly will ask you if you want to install it together with PHP, if you want to jump or avoid this question you can use the “force” option in the following way sudo stack -php=force.

Install MySQL (MariaDB)

sudo stack -mysql

Official site: https://mariadb.org/

LEMP installation

Installs Nginx, PHP, MySQL and all the additional tools.

sudo stack -lemp

Change or modify the PHP version

It is very simple, at any time you just have to execute the following command indicating the desired version of PHP:

sudo stack -php-ver=7.4

If you have not yet installed PHP, only the version that is installed by default will be modified; therefore, the next time you do the installation, the version you have indicated will be taken. If you currently have a different version installed, this command will perform the uninstallation of the previous version. It will install all the necessary packages with the new version you have indicated.

Change or modify MariaDB (MySQL) version

It is very simple, at any time you just have to execute the following command indicating the desired version of MariaDB:

sudo stack -mysql-ver=10.6

If you have not yet installed MariaDB (MySQL), only the version that is installed by default will be modified; therefore, the next time you do the installation, the version you have indicated will be taken. If you currently have a different version installed, this command will perform the uninstallation of the previous version. It will install all the necessary packages with the new version you have indicated. Downgrading MariaDB is not supported.

How can I remove installed packages?

The option -purge will allow you to remove any package installed by Webinoly, you can also use the option -purge=force to ignore any question (Unattended).

When you delete a package automatically all additional related tools will be deleted.

Delete Nginx:

sudo stack -nginx -purge

Delete PHP:

sudo stack -php -purge

Delete MySQL:

sudo stack -mysql -purge

phpMyAdmin will be automatically deleted.

# Tip - Don't delete your databases if you want to reinstall later.
sudo stack -mysql=keep-data -purge

Before removing MySQL, you should make a backup of your databases, especially if you use the keep-data option.

Remove all packages installed by Webinoly

sudo stack -purge-server-all
sudo stack -purge-server-all=force

Remove and revoke all your SSL Certs is recommended before removing Nginx:

sudo site -delete-all=force -revoke=on
sudo site domain.com -delete=force -revoke=on
sudo site domain.com -ssl=off -revoke=on

Additional Tools

With each package installed (Nginx, Php and MySQL) are added some additional tools that will be useful for the management of your websites.

All of these packages can be installed or removed individually according to your needs.

  • NGINX
    • Let’s Encrypt
    • Duply & Duplicity (Backups)
  • PHP
    • Postfix
    • Redis
    • Memcached

By default, all these tools are installed.

# Profile: light
# No additional tools will be installed
sudo stack -lemp -build=light

# Only basic tools: Let's Encrypt, Backups and Postfix
sudo stack -lemp -build=basic

# You can use these profiles when installing individual packages too.
