AWS Lightsail - Setup CapRover Hosting Server

AWS Lightsail for Beginners – Setup CapRover Web Host Manager, your own PaaS

In this video I want to share with you a new Server and webhost management tool. Early on in this channel I created two videos on this topic. I have a video on setting up an AWS lightsail server with ServerPilot that allows you to quickly setup and deploy apps. I also have a video on setting up RunCloud with Lightail for easy to use Webhost management in the cloud. Once lightsail introduced Plesk hosting I created a tutorial on setting up that as well.

In this video we’ll look at setting up a website hosting and management tool called CapRover. I recently ran into this tool and found it very easy to use and simple to manage. It will be your own PaaS (Platform as a Service) in minutes!

Following are the Setup Commands you can follow with the video:
