BitrixVM Menu

  1. Select 1. Create a site. This will launch the site creation wizard.
  2. Fill in the necessary fields:
  • Enter the site name — Specify the domain name of the created site (for Cyrillic domains, use punycode).
  • Enter site type— Choose kernel (site with a database).
  • Enter site encoding— In most cases, this will be UTF-8. If unsure, you can check the encoding by opening the site in a browser and viewing the page's source code (for example, in Google Chrome, right-click on the page and select "View Page Source". The encoding will be specified in the <meta charset=encoding> tag).
  • Do you want to enable cron for this site— If tasks are configured in Crontab for the site on the server, choose "y"; otherwise, choose "N".
  • Do you want to customize them— Choose "y" to set the name and password for the database.
  • Enter the document root path— Press Enter to leave the default value.
  • Enter database name— Specify the database name.
  • Enter username — For convenience, you can use the same name as in the previous step (database name).
  • Enter password for database_name— Enter the password for the database user.
  • Re-enter password for database_name— Re-enter the password specified in the previous step.
  1. Press Enter to complete the wizard setup.

After some time, a new site will appear in the list of created sites. You can refresh the list of sites by pressing the Enter key.
