    I googled myself to manage servers. It was bad the first 2 years, got hacked and all. Got better after as I learned more. Now, I'm fairly good at it to the point that I could troubleshoot almost everything even without KVM. I also learned how to manage Windows servers after that.

    My advice - google it. If you want a shortcut, hire a good system admin. But learning how to do it yourself is more fun and fulfilling.

    Skura, a good start would be to tell us which OS you are using, e.g. CentOS, Debian, 'Doze(and version for doze), which web server, e.g. Apache, NginX, IIS, etc. I take it you mean your provider has provided a certificate, but not set it up for you? Set up properly for that domain name on that IP it should cover the whole site including the game.

    How can I set up to my Ip SSL too? Do I understand this to mean how do you shell in to you server or VPS? If so that should be set up already if the server is running a Linux distro. Replacing myusername and mydomainname with your own user name and domain name for the server, in a terminal type (without the quotes) "ssh [email protected]" where xxx is com or de or whatever and hit return. Answer yes to the question about whether to proceed anyway, then enter your password when asked. That's it. You're in.

    Your P.S. is a much bigger question. There are some variations between distributions. For a general overview to start with, run a web search using something like "linux sysadmin tutorial". Go through the results and find one to suit the level you are at now. If you are an absolute beginner you have a long learning curve to go through.

  • Pay for the install service of your provider?

    Is the game server panel using a domain? Is it being accessed via the domain or the IP? If both you need an SSL for both.

    I'm stuck

    Just don't practice it on a production server especially with rm -rf :)

    I have IP address it have VPS and managed service.
    I make "A record" to the IP address with my domain name

    the Domain name have SSL certificate
    But the IP no.
    How to make the IP address have SSL too?

    The SSL Cert is issued to a Domain Name, and therefore only valid for the Domain!

    If you want an SSL cert for your IP address you need a special cert for that, like: https://support.globalsign.com/ssl/general-ssl/securing-public-ip-address-ssl-certificates

    So How can I secure it without ssl?
    I mean with the IP address [ Where the PAnel + game servers ] can connect to the game panel
    But with the domain with the A record all is fine.

    any suggest? Thanks!

    hi Skura . in this case, it’s better to make the frontend and backend on different servers on the game server prohibit web access but in this case, you have two options to do it yourself or pay sys administrators

    Centos 6 is not an option anymore.
    Anyway set host name of the server using that domain. And create records such as A records using the IP. Wait for propagate

    Then setup SSL on it

    Or pay some to do that

    Good luck

    Real men do

    dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=1M count=1

    on a production server.
