- Requirements for CyberPanel
- Installing CyberPanel
- Creating and Updating Nameservers for main domain
- Installing and Enabling SSL
- Installing WordPress
Requirements for CyberPanel
- A domain name from Godaddy or Namecheap
- A VPS or cloud with atleast 1 GB RAM. I am using Contabo in this demonstration. I have prepared list of VPS with open port 25, just in case you want to provide emailing to your customers as well.
Though CyberPanel recommends getting a minimum of 1 GB of RAM, I highly recommend you to get at least 2 GB RAM. This will save you from trouble later.
I already have a video lecture on how to purchase VPS from Contabo, that you can follow to buy the VPS.
Installation of cyberpanel is pretty straightforward and no brainer. All you need to do is run a single command to install it. But before that you should update Ubuntu.
Connecting to Remote VPS
Once you have the IP address, username, and password for the VPS, first of all, connect to remote VPS. If you are on a Windows machine you will need a special SSH client called Putty or BitVise. Linux and Mac user can open their terminal.
First of all switch to root user
The next step is to update the OS.
apt update -y
After that upgrade the packages using the following command.
apt upgrade -y
Now next command will begin the installation of CyberPanel.
sh <(curl https://cyberpanel.net/install.sh || wget -O - https://cyberpanel.net/install.sh)
Following this, you will be asked a few questions, just answer them.
