Install cPanel : cPanel is a popular web hosting control panel that allows users to easily manage their websites and server settings. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of installing cPanel on an Ubuntu Server 20.
Before we begin, make sure you have the following:
- An Ubuntu Server 20 instance
- Root access or a user with sudo privileges
Step 1: Update System Packages
First, we need to update the system packages to ensure that we have the latest versions. Open a terminal or connect to your server via SSH and run the following command:
sudo apt update sudo apt upgrade -y
Step 2: Set Hostname
Next, we need to set the hostname of your server. Replace “your-hostname” with your desired hostname in the following command:
sudo hostnamectl set-hostname your-hostname
Step 3: Disable Network Manager
cPanel requires that Network Manager is disabled on your server. Run the following command to disable it:
sudo systemctl stop NetworkManager sudo systemctl disable NetworkManager
Step 4: Install Perl
cPanel relies on Perl, so we need to install it. Run the following command:
sudo apt install perl -y
Step 5: Download cPanel Installation Script
Now, we need to download the cPanel installation script. Run the following command:
curl -o latest -L https://securedownloads.cpanel.net/latest
Step 6: Run cPanel Installation
With the installation script downloaded, we can now run the cPanel installation. Execute the following command:
sudo sh latest
The installation process may take some time. Once it’s complete, you will see a success message.
Step 7: Access cPanel
After the installation, you can access cPanel by opening your web browser and navigating to:
Replace “your-server-ip” with the IP address of your server.
Step 8: Set Up cPanel
When you access cPanel for the first time, you will be prompted to set up your cPanel environment. Follow the on-screen instructions to configure your preferences, set up your email accounts, and customize your server settings.
Congratulations! You have successfully installed cPanel on your Ubuntu Server 20. You can now easily manage your websites and server settings using the cPanel control panel.
Remember to keep your cPanel installation up to date by regularly checking for updates and applying them as needed. This will ensure that you have the latest security patches and features.
