We have pre-configured our dedicated virtual server tor hosting and there are some requirements to get you started. It is important you follow this guide to secure your tor hosting server and to setup wordpress including creating your first database.
We have Adminer installed which enables you to create database users and databases for your website.
In order to get started please follow the guide step by step.
Step 1. Obtain your onion address.
One first boot your onion address will be created automatically.
You can find your onion address by entering:-
You onion address will be displayed such as as this example:
If you choose to run wordpress you can browse to your wordpress installation by entering your onion address in the tor browser.
However you will first need to create your user and database.
Step 2. Accessing Adminer
You can access Adminer by entering your onion address followed by /adminer
In order to login to adminer you will need to create your mysql root password.
You can do this by logging to your server via ssh and entering the following:
You can create your password there. Please enter no for the first question then follow below.
Once you have created your root password you can then login to Adminer to create your first database.
The login screen will look like below. Please use your onion address and NOT the one as in the example.
Enter root as the username and your password you create in the previous step. You must leave the database blank as we will login to the root mysql account.
Step 3. Create your database.
You click on “create database and name it whatever you wish. In our case we have named it “wordpress”.
Once created you will see this screen.
Now we can select the privileges tab and create our database user.
Step 4. Create your first database user.
Once you select the priviledges tab you can create your database user.
You can name the user whatever you wish.
Here we have named it “testuser” and enter the password we want.
Select all privileges and click save down the bottom of the page.
Once you have completed this you can go back to the wordpress installer and enter the database and user you created earlier.
Please note it is important not to remove the adminer folder in your public folder. If you delete this you will need to rebuild your server.
