This document explains how to install H-Sphere SSE 3.0 Patch 6.
Please make sure to have your servers prepared as instructed in the
Preparing Servers for H-Sphere Installation manual.
Step 1. Download the Installation/Update Script
Log into the server where you install H-Sphere SSE as root:
$ su -l
Download the H-Sphere SSE 3.0 Patch 6 install/update script:
# wget http://www.psoft.net/shiv/HS/releases/U30.0/U30.0P6SSE/U30.0P6SSE
# fetch http://www.psoft.net/shiv/HS/releases/U30.0/U30.0P6SSE/U30.0P6SSE
Please make sure that permissions to /usr/bin/wget are set to 0755 during the installation.
Step 2. Run the Installer
To start installation, run the install/update script with the install option eiter in interactive
or non-interactive mode:
# sh U30.0P6SSE install
Then you will be prompted to continue presingle or postsingle installation.
* This mode allows you to run the install/update script without the need to enter the wrapper and type in the options there. For example:
# sh U30.0P6SSE install cpinstall

Step 3. Prepare Preconfigured H-Sphere SSE
Before you install H-Sphere SSE on a datacenter, prepare a preconfigured H-Sphere single server installation
with a set of services (Web, mail, DNS, MySQL, MRTG) you need.
In the installer's command line type in the following command:
presingle [ skip-sitestudio ] [ group=cp,mail,unix_hosting,mysql,dns,mrtg ]
Specify the skip-sitestudio option to skip installing SiteStudio with H-Sphere.
Choose custom comma-delimited list of required services in the optional group parameter.
If you omit this parameter, H-Sphere installer will install all the services.
After pre-configuration, you may create an ISO image of the server's hard drive to be later on exported to other servers
so that you are .
Step 4. Install Preconfigured H-Sphere SSE
To install H-Sphere from the prepared Single Server Edition pre-installation, run the H-Sphere installer
with the postsingle option. You must specify at least:
- zone=SERVICE_ZONE - server's service zone domain name
- ip=SERVICE_IP - service zone IP
- ip2=SECOND_DNS_IP - second DNS server IP.
It is required by domain registration systems like Enom, OpenSRS.
postsingle zone=SERVICE_ZONE ip=SERVICE_IP ip2=SECOND_DNS_IP [ skip-sitestudio ]
[ group=cp,mail,unix_hosting,mysql,dns,mrtg ]
[ natip=NAT_IP ] [ mask=MASK ]
Here, group is the list of services to be installed; NAT_IP is external NAT IP if
NAT mapping is implemented; the mask parameter is set if
your IP mask is different from 255.255.255.0.
When the installation is finished, H-Sphere SSE admin's Control Panel
will be available at http://SERVICE_IP:8080
After you enter H-Sphere SSE admin CP, enter a valid
Master Key to be able to work further on.
H-Sphere SSE installation program doesn't set up missing service IPs. You
should set them up manually.
After H-Sphere is installed, it includes two accounts which may not be deleted:
- the admin account (login: admin, password: admin)
to configure system settings. It is very highly recommended to
change the password of the admin account after the installation
and testing have been completed.
- the wwwuser account to manage the control panel domain, which
is also used by the other servers of the system.
