What does ServerAvatar install?

ServerAvatar installs various packages on your server. Some of these packages are from Ubuntu’s repositories.

Packages provided by us are designed to not conflict with packages from Ubuntu. However, if you install another webserver that runs on port 80, 81, or 443, your website’s may no longer work.

Apache 2.4

Apache listens only on localhost port 81.

Your PHP apps are run using PHP-FPM.
