Install and Try 'Watch My Domains SED v4' for 30 days on a DigitalOcean Cloud Server for Free

watch my domains sed installer

This is a fully automated installation of Watch My Domains SED on a bare-bones DigitalOcean droplet. You don't really have to do anything except create a droplet and then map the IP address of your droplet to a hostname (done by logging in to your registrar / DNS provider). The bash script will automatically install Apache, PHP, MariaDB, ionCube loader, Let's Encrypt SSL and anything else required for Watch My Domains SED. It will also create the required cron jobs.

Setup Administrator

The installation script will save all the randomly generated passwords into a file called required.txt in the '/root' folder. You will need to grab the contents of this file after the installation and delete it from the server. To login to Watch My Domains SED after installation you will need a setup administrator password. Use setup as the user ID and the password mentioned under User sedapp: as the password. You can change these by editing the config.php file in the installation root folder.

Create Your Droplet & Install Watch My Domains SED

Use the Create Droplet option to create your droplet. You should select the following options.

  • Debian 10.x x64 (latest x64 distribution of Debian)
  • Either the 1GB or 2GB Memory Droplet
  • Choose any datacenter close to your location / region
  • Add an SSH key if you have one and you understand what it means, otherwise select the one time password option. The root password will be emailed to you and you will be asked to change it on first login to the server.
  • Specify the hostname you want to use. Hostname is what you will enter into the browser to access the final installation. You can use whatever you want as long as the corresponding domain belongs to you and you can setup an A record for it at your registrar / DNS provider. A typical hostname could be domains.yourcompany.com.
  • Click Create Droplet

DigitalOcean will create the droplet and display the IP address of the droplet. Copy it and then go to your registrar / DNS provider and map the hostname to the IP address. Once you are done the hostname should resolve to the IP address of your droplet.

Make sure that your hostname resolves properly, otherwise the installation script will not work.

Download and Run the Installer

Now login to the server using SSH and using the root password that was emailed to you. You will be asked to change the root password. Do so and then do

cd /root

wget https://labs.codepunch.com/dev/bash/debian/wmdsed4-debian-10-php-7.3.sh

chmod u+x wmdsed4-debian-10-php-7.3.sh

./wmdsed4-debian-10-php-7.3.sh  your_email_address_here

Don't forget to enter the email address in the last command.

This will install the required packages and the application.
