How to Setup a Web Server on IPv6 VPS

Posted on

IPv6 is always challenging but fun, our main purpose is to setup a web server where both IPv4 and IPv6 will be able to access it.

  1. If you dont have a VPS yet, you can create a free ipv6 VPS on Hax.co.id,  this is my free VPS from hax:
  2. Check this tutorial for how to connect to ipv6 vps
  3. Pointing a domain to Cloudflare using AAAA record, if you dont have a domain lets grab a free sub domain at https://hax.co.id/dns-pointing/. Fill in the sub domain and ipv6 address

  4. Login to your VPS and run the following command to allow 80 and 443 (if firewall active) and install a web server
    Ubuntu 20.04

    apt update -y
    --below is optional--
    ufw allow ssh
    ufw allow 80
    ufw allow 443
    ufw enable
    ----------------
    apt install apache2 -y
    apt install php7.4 php7.4-mysql php-common php7.4-cli php7.4-json php7.4-common php7.4-opcache libapache2-mod-php7.4 -y
    apt install mariadb-server mariadb-client -y
    mysql_secure_installation
    systemctl restart apache2
    systemctl enable apache2
    systemctl enable mariadb
    
    

    Centos 8

    yum update -y
    yum install httpd -y
    systemctl enable httpd
    systemctl start httpd
    firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-service=http
    firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-service=https
    firewall-cmd --reload
    yum install -y php php-mysqlnd
    yum install mariadb-server mariadb -y
    systemctl enable mariadb
    systemctl start mariadb
    mysql_secure_installation
    systemctl restart httpd

    Debian 10

    sudo apt update -y
    sudo -- sh -c 'apt update && apt upgrade' 
    sudo apt install apache2
    sudo ufw allow www
    sudo ufw allow https
    sudo ufw allow in "WWW Full"
    sudo apt install php libapache2-mod-php php-gd php-mysql
    sudo apt install mariadb-server
    sudo mysql_secure_installation
    sudo systemctl restart apache2.service


  5.  You can visit your domain / sub domain (step3), for example http://bot.ipv6host.co  and see an example page there
