Quick Linux server:
7 years ago I created Laragon as a modern development environment for Windows. Now, from Laragon 5, I will help you with
Linux. I build Laragon for Windows but actually Linux is in my DNA as I architect and scale complex distributed microservices system with many production Kubernetes clusters distributed across the globe with 20+ Data Centers, 10,000+ containers, thousands of databases, ~100 microservices composed by different stacks (PHP, Java, Ruby, Node.js, Golang, Python) and various technologies for large scale and enterprise system (Kafka, Solr, ClickHouse,...)
This release of Laragon includes a tool calls
bitmanawhich helps you create Linux servers extremely fast with very low cost (you can have a VPS with just $1/month and scale it effortlessly). It also helps us to operate our VPS servers easily with effortless control.
You can try it free yourself. Let me show how cool it is:
Register an accout at: https://app.bitmana.io
It is quick, only provide YOUR-EMAIL
Open Laragon's Terminal, and type:
bitmana link YOUR-EMAIL
Input your password and press Enter
It will authenticate your system with bitmana.io
- Create a LAMP server:
bitmana cs lamp
lamp= LAMP stack. Just a few seconds, you have a server with Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP, composer
Note your NODE_ID ->
- By default, your server is secure, to expose port 80, type:
bitmana expose NODE_ID 80
Note the exposed Url
- Browser the exposed Url, you'll see something like this:
Welcome to Bitmana! If you see this page, the web server is successfully installed and working.
It's cool, huh.
Because your system is authenticated with bitmana.io, you can also ssh to the server with ease:
bitmana ssh NODE_ID
or run commands without accessing your server
bitmana exec NODE_ID "service apache2 status; composer --version"
bitmana infoto list your servers.
You can type:
bitmanafor more commands.
Link your account:
Create Linux server:
Expose port 80:
Check web server is working well:
Run commands without accessing your server:
bitmana exec 67887 "service apache2 status; composer --version"
"service apache2 status; composer --version" -> 2 commands with are seperated by semicolon
SSH to your server:
bitmana ssh 67887
Hi @leokhoa ,
may I ask what's your relation to Bitmana? The service looks great, the interface created by jelastic.com is excellent.
The support however is underwhelming and a lot of things are just not working. Before the trial period ended I topped up my account, the nodes were stopped anyway (that's a no-go!) and until today I still haven't heard anything from anyone and the servers are still stopped. My top-up balance is still floating somewhere (definitely not on my PayPal account anymore, but apparently not good enough to pay for the nodes). And although I wrote two tickets (one last week, the other yesterday) I haven't heard anything back.
Hi @URehni : I helped creating the bitmana cli to make thing easier to developers. It is awesome so I hope it to be popular. It seems that your issues has been sorted.
yes, the issue has been sorted. Thank you. It is an awesome service indeed, but for production environments the support has to get better an the teething problems have to be ironed out. We really would like to support you for all the good you did with Laragon. But at the current state, if we wanted to move our production webservices, CloudJiffy would probably be the better choice.
Keep it up, it can be awesome!
It begs the question, is Laragon suited to a production environment? I understood it was a development stack.
