VestaCP Server Installer – The Perfect Server

I decided to create the perfect VestaCP server installer script (in my opinion) for CentOS 7 (I have only tried it on CentOS 7). Basically, you run it, it asks a few questions and then it sets up a perfect server including CSF, Monit and PHP 7 (if you want it). Amazing, right?

Monit SMS notifications with TextBelt for free

TextBelt is a free service whereby you can receive SMS messages for free. It’s as simple as this:

curl -X POST http://textbelt.com/text \
-d number=5551234567 \
-d "message=I sent this message for free with textbelt.com"

So wouldn’t this be cool if we could integrate this with Monit? Well I did just that. With a few lines of code you can receive SMS messages when one of your monit programs goes offline.
