Introduction

CyberPanel is one of the first control panels on the market that is both open source and uses OpenLiteSpeed. What this means is that, rather than using a conventional web server, CyberPanel takes advantage of OpenLiteSpeed. LiteSpeed offers performance benefits, which help reduce resource usage.

Prerequisites

  • An Ubuntu 18.04 (64-bit) server
  • Root access

Installation

Update the packages installed on the system and install wget:

apt update && apt upgrade -y 
apt install -y wget

Download the installer to the /root directory:

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

Set the executable bit and run the installer:

chmod u+x installer.sh
./installer.sh

You will see the following output:
