Considering moving to Solidcp and need some clarity on a few things
I am considering moving to Solidcp from zpanel and need to find out if it will do what I need it to.
Firstly I assume Solidcp is able to install a php nuke style website? as one of my sites runs nuke evo.
Secondly I attempted to install Solidcp on a fresh server 2019 vm but have an issue on how to configure SQL Server to do this, In the video (Install Solidcp in 5 mins) at 2:02 the SQL Server name is localhost and when I try to do this it tells me the SQL Server doesnt exist or permission is denied, Im confused on how to do this and I need some clarity here as Im no master at setting these things up and have looked over SQL Server installations but im easily lost.
In reality I at least need the same features zpanel has, Apache, mailserver etc.. So I can migrate over my existing data the best I can.
I have uninstalled SQL Server 2019 for the time being as I want to get this right the first time so I dont have issues down the track.
My goal is to run this from within the vm and have the sites within it with ability to offer hosting to friends with their own panel etc.
I appreciate any help I can get regarding this matter as I think its time for me to move to a later/up to date software platform,
Sorry for the late reply (covid-19 and holidays kinda messes up our schedule quite a bit).
PHP websites can be installed aslong as the server is configured for it.
SQL Server really depends how you setup mssql how do you connect to it via SQL Management for example? (localhostsqlexpress or anything else?) this is what you will need to fill in there.
SolidCP isn't made for linux but windows, so the web server would be for example IIS instead of apache.
Thanks for your reply,
Ok Im not sure if your familiar with zpanel at all but it has an install for windows platform, (Which is what Im using currently) Im hoping SolidCP has progressed somewhat since my question was asked as I get confused on what can be used and what cannot with SolidCP, At the moment Im running a php nuke site with phpmyadmin/mysql with apache, Im open to any conversion/update process necessary to bring my site and db across to SolidCP and if possible any tutorial to do so or knowledgeable person to advise on the process to transition would be a massive weight partially lifted of my shoulders, Im used to apache but if need be I can learn the way of IIS, Many Thanks and I look forward to a reply,
SolidCP works with native Microsoft techniques which is IIS instead of apache.
PHPNuke, phpmyadmin work fine with IIS. (the databases you can just import from the existing mysql without having to re-create or migrate if you want).

Ok this is an old thread but I think it is still relevant, So I waited till recently to do the revamp to my server as I needed nested virtualization and server 2019 couldnt do that as I run amd processors, So I am using server 2022, SQL2019 express and I have my website working so far, Now a big bUt here as it is so damn hard to figure out the process and order to deploy settings/configurations and sadly the tutorials do not cover each module in a simplistic manner of explanation. If at all possible I (and likely many others in my position) need to know how to go about doing things that are not covered in the tutorials, eg, A recommended process order of doing things, Like setting up a basic configuration for hosting spaces hosting plans (ie Templates), setting up a VPS etc as its super annoying to grind it out trying to figure out if there is an order of deployment for each action before performing the next etc.. I am certain once I get a better than casual understanding on SolidCP and all its modules etc I can learn the rest much easier,
