Step 7: System User

In ServerAvatar, when creating a new application, you have the option to either create a new system user for the application or use an existing one. A system user is a user account created on your server, which is used to manage files and permissions for your application.

Step 8: Other Setting

In the Basic Settings section of creating an application in ServerAvatar, you have the option to select the PHP version for your application. ServerAvatar supports multiple PHP versions ranging from 7.2 to 8.2. You can choose the desired PHP version for your application.

You also have the option to specify a custom webroot path for your application. By default, ServerAvatar sets the webroot path to "/public_html" for your application. However, if you want to set a custom webroot path, you can do so by entering the desired path in the "Webroot" field provided. This can be useful if you have specific requirements for the directory structure of your application.

Step 8: Review

After completing the previous steps, the user will be directed to the review page where they can review all the details they have entered for the application. This includes the application name, primary domain, test domain, application method, system user, PHP version, and custom web root path.

If any changes are required, the user can go back to the respective sections and make the changes. If everything looks good, they can click on the "Create Application" button to create the application. Your website should be live in the next 10-15 seconds. Once your application is installed, you will be redirected to an application dashboard from which you can manage the application.
