#? 14

The following information has been given:

    India

Therefore TZ='Asia/Kolkata' will be used.
Local time is now:    Fri Dec 15 03:42:09 IST 2017.
Universal Time is now:    Thu Dec 14 22:12:09 UTC 2017.
Is the above information OK?
1) Yes
2) No
#? 1


Check the timezone.

You can make this change permanent for yourself by appending the line
    TZ='Asia/Kolkata'; export TZ
to the file '.profile' in your home directory; then log out and log in again.

Here is that TZ value again, this time on standard output so that you
can use the /usr/bin/tzselect command in shell scripts:
Asia/Kolkata

 

Later, enter the sub domain and Public IP.  

=== Informations required to build your server ===
The installer requires 2 pieces of information:
 1) the sub-domain that you want to use to access Sentora panel,
   - do not use your main domain (like domain.com)
   - use a sub-domain, e.g panel.domain.com
   - or use the server hostname, e.g server1.domain.com
   - DNS must already be configured and pointing to the server IP
       for this sub-domain
 2) The public IP of the server.

Enter the sub-domain you want to access Sentora panel: linuxhelp

The public IP of the server is 125.17.109.94. Its local IP is 192.168.7.237
  For a production server, the PUBLIC IP must be used.
Enter (or confirm) the public IP for this server: 125.17.109.94

WARNING: linuxhelp is not a subdomain!
WARNING: linuxhelp is not defined in your DNS!
  You must add records in your DNS manager (and then wait until propagation is done).
  For more information, read the Sentora documentation:
   - http://docs.sentora.org/index.php?node=7 (Installing Sentora)
   - http://docs.sentora.org/index.php?node=51 (Installer questions)
  If this is a production installation, set the DNS up as soon as possible.

 

Make other needed settings as well. 

There are some warnings...
Are you really sure that you want to setup Sentora with these parameters?
