CentOS Web Panel Installation – Step by step Guide

In this article, we will show you how to make a working CentOS Web Panel Installation. To avoid any issues during and after the installations follow those rules. You would need a VPS or Dedicated Server with a 64bit OS at least 1GB of ram and at least 20GB available space.

First, we prepare the server or VPS for CentOS Web Panel

yum -y install wget

yum -y update


Set Hostname


After the reboot is finished you would need a hostname for the server you are installing CWP on.

To do that log into your server and type in the following:

hostname srv.example.com

As you have noticed the hostname is recommended to be a subdomain rather than the main domain.


Download CentOS Web Panel


What follows are the steps you need to follow to get CWP on your CentOS 6 server:

cPanel Hosting from WebhostFace
cd /usr/local/src
wget http://centos-webpanel.com/cwp-latest
sh cwp-latest


Here are the installation steps for CentOS 7 server:

cd /usr/local/src
wget http://centos-webpanel.com/cwp-el7-latest
sh cwp-el7-latest

After the screen has stopped moving which takes around 30-40 minutes you need to reboot your server to complete the installation:


That is it now you have CentOS Web Panel on your VPS or Dedicated Server.

To Log into your control panel as root use the following link:

Username: root
assword: is your root password.
