Finished getting the server setup today for web hosting. Had to beat phpmyadmin and mysql into submission, theres some issues with the system not allowing permission for the database user to login due to insufficient privileges because the users were not part of the unix system. WTF why is this even an issue these days.
Anyways got the permission issue sorted then installed git and moved my current site to the new server and cloned the repo so that i can work on it remotely. The old site is for older php5 and I decided to move to php7 so I need to update the database calls to use the mysqli functions.
Also learned a bit about using proxy settings in apache. The server runs plex and instead of typing ip:port/web I setup apache to redirect the root directory to the plex site. Set a few exceptions in the proxy for my sites and things like phpmyadmin.
Hope to get back into code tomorrow.
