Froxlor general questions

Question

Hello everyone,

1. Is it possible to get Froxlor running on a Nginx web server? 

2. Is it possible, for example, to install the open source software "OpenSlides" (python-based) on a subdomain?

1. yes

2. yes but the uwsgi part (required to run python in webserver) will be up to you

Thanks, @d00p! :) 

For operation with Nginx: Is there a documentation on how to use nginx? (Installation and configuration of the web server for the subdomains?)

Does anyone have experience with Froxlor as web administration on a root server / vServer from Hetzner Online?

the whole point of froxlor is that you do not have to do that....?! You install nginx, the default vhost should point to froxlor, you set it up, adjust settings, run the configuration templates and that's it...rest is done via webinterface

how would that differ from any other root-server/vserver provider? :P

Hm. I don't know. I would like to install Froxlor on a Hetzner root server because I think Hetzner is the best value for money.

The idea is further that I install via the Froxlor web interface, Limesurvey, OpenSlides, Nextcloud and Moodle. This works without large SSH access if Froxlor is configured correctly.

so, no need to advertise here....if you feel good with them then what's to discuss here about that?

You cannot install these tools VIA froxlor. You can add customers / (sub)domains / ftp accounts - with this (as customer) you open your ftp-client or whatever suits you and you upload whatever-tool you want to install on that domain. That's basically how every hosting-service works....except as froxlor-admin YOU are the hosting-service and not the customer

Or FTP ;) per Default the customer does not have ssh access

Hm, OpenSlides is python-based, and I don't know how I would get it going ...

well, if you're the server-admin anyway then sure, just do what it takes via SSH, this has nothing to do with froxlor. froxlor is just a webinterface to administrate customers, domains etc. what you install in the corresponding homedirs is totally up to you. and if the tool requires "pip install" via shell,  then you need to do that, froxlor won't stop you :) Just remember to check correct ownership if you are going to do stuff on shell using root account.

For example, I can install OpenSlides via Shell - the question now: The assignment to the respective subdomain is then via the Nginx Config ???

SSH access to root, only via password-protected public key file. ;)

no idea what you mean by that. Create a customer, add a domain to the customer. the domain will then point to /var/customers/webs/[username]/[domainname] (if set up default).

As I said in my first answer: python requires a special setup to be able to be interpretated by nginx...you should read tutorials on that if you don't know how to do that.
