01 - Installing CyberPanel

This guide will walk you through how to install the self-hosted CyberPanel control panel on your server, which is independent of [CyberPanel Cloud](https://cloud.cyberpanel.net/).

Requirements

  • Server with a fresh install of Centos 7.x, Centos 8.x, Ubuntu 18.04, Ubuntu 20.04, AlmaLinux 8

  • Python 3.x

  • 1024MB RAM, or higher

  • 10GB Disk Space


CyberPanel vs CyberPanel Ent

CyberPanel is 100% identical in both versions. The only difference is which web server is running in the back-end.

  1. CyberPanel comes with OpenLiteSpeed and is completely free for an unlimited number of domains and worker processes.
  2. CyberPanel Ent comes with LiteSpeed Web Server Enterprise and it is free for 1 domain. If you need more than 1 domain, you can view our pricing page. The CyberPanel license includes the price of your LiteSpeed Enterprise license.

To learn more about the differences between OpenLiteSpeed and LiteSpeed Web Server Enterprise, please see this comprehensive comparison.


Installing CyberPanel

Step 1: Connect to your server via SSH

The installation of CyberPanel is quite simple. First, log into your server via SSH as the root user (sudo will not work). You can get the login details from your web host.

Step 2: Update packages

For Ubuntu: sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y
For CentOS/Alma/Rocky:

sudo yum check-update
sudo yum update

Step 2: Run the installation script

Run the following command. It will initiate the automated installation script, which will prompt you for a few decisions about which version of LiteSpeed and which add-ons you would like to install.

sh <(curl https://cyberpanel.net/install.sh || wget -O - https://cyberpanel.net/install.sh)

Step 3: Select the version of LiteSpeed that you would like to use

Select which version of LiteSpeed to install. If you select LiteSpeed Enterprise, please ensure that you have obtained a license key first. It is free for 1 domain, but you still need to obtain the key. Visit the pricing table to decide your desired plan.

Try to install again and it should be solved.

Should I be running sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y before installing CyberPanel or does it need to be a truly fresh install?

I ask because different VPS providers seem to install different versions of the same OS, such that if I run apt update, there are anywhere from 0 to 80 packages available to be upgraded, depending on the provider.

Its always recommended to do the OS update command before installing or upgrading cyberpanel.

tq sir, try install many times more than 10 time, finally successfully.

Hello World! Installation will be successful if MySQL and PHPMYADMIN are installed on the server? Or do I need to install the cyberpanel on the clean server OpenLitespeed? :man_technologist:

then actually there is something with your datacenter and/or connections

recommended :
Install OS with minimalist and no features
do Upgrade system
restart
install cyberpanel using auto installer

@die2mrw007 @usmannasir

Is there anyway to reinstall Cyberpanel without old files not getting deleted??. Or possible to setup database installation again?

@brvnbld Run the upgrade script.

@fluxx have you solved this? Sometimes I get installation errors that are solved by running it again.

Hello! Ubuntu 20.04, why after installation does not show me access to Rainloop Admin and WebAdmin console? (selected to install the latest version)

what command you run to install ?

The one that is here in the guide

sh <(curl https://cyberpanel.net/install.sh || wget -O - https://cyberpanel.net/install.sh)

so, this is new installation
try to destroy the vps
then rebuild
then follow 01 - Installing CyberPanel - Docs / 01 - Install/Upgrade - CyberPanel Community

I have already done this 3 times and tried centOS 8 and in your link - same command to install, no difference.

sh <(curl https://cyberpanel.net/install.sh || wget -O - https://cyberpanel.net/install.sh)

then this is area for developer to check installation script

Yes, it looks like it is. I will wait for an answer.

I’ve removed that you can reset web admin password, because people were trying to access port 7080 thinking it is CyberPanel and we had to deal with tickets.
