CentOS web panel is a free linux hosting panel for VPS and Dedicated Server as you know that. But before proceeding with installation you should take care of some important aspects of CentOs Web Panel.
- It supports only Static IP. Before installing please be ensure that you have static IP with your server. Any other IP like dynamic, sticky or internal is not supported by the CWP.
- CWP installation is very easy but if you want to uninstall it then there is no any way to do it. Only way is to format your server or reinstall the server.
Steps to install the CentOS Web Panel over your server.
As server is fresh so we need a Hostname for it. Ensure that hostname is not the domain name which is going to the hosted over this server. Best idea is create a subdomain.
For creating the hostname use the below command
Setup IP Address
Define additional IP address, subnet address, and default gateway IP address for your server — your service provider can provide you with this information
You need a fresh installed server with supported operating system. CentOS 6, RedHat 6 or CloudLinux 6, MINIMAL installation and English version only!
You can start with 512MB of RAM if your Operating System is 32 Bit.
Prepare Server for Installation
For preparing the server you must have yum installed in your server. It will help you to install many packages and CWP also need yum. Run the following command
yum -y install wget
After running this command we will ensure that we have the updated version of it.
yum -y update
Now we will reboot our server so that everything will go fine and fixed.
After the reboot we will start installation procedure in our Cent OS 7. Run the below command 1 by 1so that we will start the installation.
cd /usr/local/src wget http://centos-webpanel.com/cwp-el7-latest sh cwp-el7-latest
If the url is not working then you can use this Url – http://dl1.centos-webpanel.com/files/cwp-el7-latest and replace it with the previous one.
After the process finishes copy the MySQL details and other details which is available at your screen. It shows the URL, Mysql Username and password.
Now reboot the server. After few seconds use the given URL in your browser and open the panel with your ID and Password. Username is the “root” and Password is the same as your root password.
Now setup some of the details in your server so that you can use it for your project or work.
- Setup nameservers
- Setup shared ip (must be your public IP address)
- Setup at least one hosting package (or edit default package)
- root email
After these initialization you can host your domain and show it to the world.
