How it works?
ServerAvatar provides an easy-to-understand user interface to you.
So, Instead of hitting your head on the command line interface, You can perform actions with clicks and simple options. ServerAvatar will instantly perform desired action on your server and return you the appropriate response.
ServerAvatar can help you perform all the actions from initially configuring your server to monitoring sites on your server. Here is how exactly it works.
As you can already understand, It keeps you away from the command line interface. And performs majority of the actions in seconds, without any errors!
The initial server configuration takes about 5 minutes. In the initial configuration, It will install and configure:
- Web Server
- PHP-FPM (All versions, from 7.0 to 8.0)
- SWAP Memory
- Other important Services
While ServerAvatar is setting up your server, You just have to sit back and relax, do not worry about manually editing any config file on the server. Everything is managed by ServerAvatar. Once the server is ready, you can create multiple sites on a single server, each with it's own PHP version and settings.
