CyberPanel is a fantastic control panel for your VPS; it is powered by OpenLiteSpeed and provides a reliable and secure experience. If you want to install the CyberPanel control panel on your virtual private server (VPS), then you are at the right place. Today, we have brought a tutorial for you that will guide you through the steps of the installation.

Before we proceed with the installation, let’s make sure that your virtual private server meets the minimum requirements needed by CyberPanel. On your VPS, you should at least have 1 GB of RAM, as well as 10 GB of free storage space. You would also need to have python 2.7 installed on the server. To check the version of python, run the command

“python –version.” 

To begin the installation of CyberPanel, you must have root privileges of your VPS, so log in to the server as a root user. 

Before we download the package for the CyberPanel, run this command:

“yum update -y”

This will update the packages on your system. Now, let’s download the package for CyberPanel. We will use wget to download the .sh file for CyberPanel from their website. Now open the command line terminal and make sure that you are in the root directory or do “cd ~”.

Now, run this command in the terminal:

“wget -O installer.sh https://cyberpanel.net/install.sh

This will start downloading the installation file for CyberPanel. Once the download is complete, we need to modify the permissions for the file. For that use the following command:

“chmod 755 installer.sh”

Now, we’ll start the installation by running the command:

“sh installer.sh”

After running this command, you will be prompted with 3 options. Select the first option, “Install CyberPanel,” by typing “1” and pressing enter.

After that, you will again be prompted with 3 options. This option will ask you if you want to install CyberPanel with OpenLiteSpeed or with LiteSpeed Enterprise. Choose the option you want.

Now, it will ask you if you want to install the extensions for CyberPanel, such as Redis and Memcached. For all the options, type “y” and press enter. 

At this point, CyberPanel is successfully installed on your VPS! The installer would now be displaying the port (8090) for the control panel, as well as the default username and password. Note them down.

CyberPanel is now installed; however, you still need to configure it. To do that, open your browser and head on over to the control panel on “(Server’s IP):8090”. There enter the default username and password. To modify the user information and change your password, click the menu arrow and select the “Edit Profile” option. Now in the “modify user” page, select “admin.” There you will be able to the details as well as change your password.

      A minimal custom install of Cyberpanel without all the extras (postfix, ftp, redis, etc) runs quite well even with 512mb RAM (in my experience).
