Allowing sub-servers to do script installs

I know I’m missing an “OK” somewhere…
I want to create a sub-server under an existing domain and allow that sub-server to install script_installers. But all I see is an update capability, not the ability to install new script_installers.

What I’m trying to do is create a where a set of general tools will reside that can be utilized by clients. I.e. limesurvey, phpMyAdmin, etc.

Can someone point me to where I need to enable this? I really only want it enabled for a specific sub-server, but enabling it for any sub-sever would be okay.<br><br>Post edited by: tbirnseth, at: 2008/12/15 16:36

what I do is generate a sub-server as a top level server
it will then behave as any normal server incl. the install scripts feature and its own login

Not sure what you mean. When I select ‘create sub-server’ I don’t get the same template as I do with a top-level server. Hence it doesn’t seem to have the option to do many of the things a top-level server does.

Do I create a top-level server and then move it to become a sub-server of another domain?

Can you give your basic steps?

1 create server
2 choose top level server (thus not sub-server)
3 at Domain name field fill in:

because of the name you give it, it is in fact already a sub-server,but with all features of a top level server

it will then reside in /home/

not in /home/

hmm… How about the DNS for it.
My ultimate goal is to be able to create CNAME entries in DNS and RewriteRule’s in httpd.

I.e. IN A
and to be able to access it via:

Will this work under this strategy?

Appreciate your help.

yes because it will behave exactly as any top level domain
so will behave the same as as in features, apache, dns etc.

example of zonefile as i have it for such created sub-server

$ttl 38400 @ IN SOA ( 2008063001 10800 3600 604800 38400 ) @ IN NS IN A IN A IN A IN A IN TXT "v=spf1 a mx" 38400 IN NS IN NS IN MX 10

and its apache directives, you can add rewrite rules of course.

SuexecUserGroup "#547" "#529" ServerName ServerAlias DocumentRoot /home/ ErrorLog /home/ CustomLog /home/ combined ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/ ScriptAlias /awstats /home/ DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.php index.php4 index.php5 <Directory /home/> Options Indexes IncludesNOEXEC FollowSymLinks ExecCGI allow from all AllowOverride All AddHandler fcgid-script .php AddHandler fcgid-script .php5 FCGIWrapper /home/ .php FCGIWrapper /home/ .php5 </Directory> <Directory /home/> allow from all </Directory> RemoveHandler .php RemoveHandler .php5 <Files> AuthName " statistics" AuthType Basic AuthUserFile /home/ require valid-user </Files>

That works perfectly!!! Thanks.
