Step 1: Set Up Your ServerStadium Server

  1. Select and Prepare a Server: Choose a ServerStadium server that suits your application’s needs and prepare it for deployment.

    sudo apt update

Step 2: Sign Up for New Relic and Install the Agent

  1. Create a New Relic Account: If you don’t have an account, sign up at New Relic’s website.
  2. Install the New Relic Agent: Depending on your application’s stack (e.g., PHP, Java, .NET), install the appropriate New Relic APM agent on your server.

    For a PHP application:

    echo 'deb newrelic non-free' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/newrelic.list
    wget -O- | sudo apt-key add –
    sudo apt-get update

    sudo newrelic-install install

    Follow the prompts to add your New Relic license key and configure the agent.

Step 3: Configure the New Relic Agent

  1. Agent Configuration: Configure the New Relic agent by editing its configuration file. This involves setting the application name, license key, and other settings.

    sudo nano /etc/newrelic/newrelic.ini

    Update the newrelic.appname and newrelic.license settings.

Step 4: Deploy Your Application

  1. Deploy Your Application: Upload and deploy your application on your ServerStadium server as you normally would.
