What is the check list?

I have 10 websites that I need to move in before I do so what is the check list I need to do?

Example

Security:

1. install csf and mod security
2. remove port 22 and allow access to ip etc...


Admin setting
1. increase the upload site

etc...


Give me the list :)

Even one suggestion if you are busy thanks

One Admins checklist is different from the other. Just high level..

Pre checks
Come up with a hostname scheme.
example nature animals, movie characters. > eagles.yourdomain.com or frodo.yourdomain.com

Setup DNS with server ip and name in your dns system.

setup ssh client on your workstation

setup sshd on server with a non default port. Never use 22 on purpose.

Make sure your ssh keys are generated to use with server.

on server set chosen hostname hostnamectl and /etc/host or how you prefer..

set locals and timezones

verify wget and nano are installed

run yum update -y

reboot

Install:

run DA install using custom build 2 follow this

install csf and kernelcare and others as needed.

That's a start.

Thanks what if you are using the directadmin for your own websites does it worth paying for cloudlinux and kernel care?

You don't really need them if you only host your own websites. You need cloudlinux if you host your clients and share your resources safely.
