Hi Guys,
Newb here.
I plan to get an Apache server on Cloud VPS by Digital Ocean. There would be no PHP , no SQL, no email server
Scope will be to host multiple simple portfolio type static html files on different domains.( no dynamic content served by PHP server)

Once in a while, the only dynamic component will be to create new or update exiting static html pages with new text / image tags via unix script.

Was wondering if someone could take a look at the architecture diagram and advise if WHM can be used for such setup ?

[removed third-party URL]

I am hoping that WHM would enable me to add new domains for different sties, configure their DNS etc .?

Thanks

Hello,

Yes it can easily do this for you. You would need to run EasyApache and choose not to build PHP, there is actually a profile that is prebuilt that will do this for you.

You can also stop any unneeded services, just make sure to remove them from the Service Manager otherwise cPanel will automatically restart them.

Yes it does this out of the box via WHM > Create a new account
