CyberPanel is a web hosting panel built on the LiteSpeed web server. Officially supported Linux distributions are Ubuntu and CentOS/Enterprise. When installing CyberPanel, you can choose one of two versions:

  • CyberPanel free forever with OpenLiteSpeed
  • CyberPanel Enterprise with LiteSpeed Enterprise

Currently, we do not recommend using Ubuntu for CyberPanel due to current security bugs. Below, we’ll take a look at the free version of CyberPanel, which includes unlimited domains and workflows.

How to install CyberPanel

Follow these steps to install CyberPanel on Ubuntu and CentOS distributions.

Step 1. Connect to the server using SSH.

Step 2. Run the CyberPanel installation script:

sh <(curl https://cyberpanel.net/install.sh || wget -O - https://cyberpanel.net/install.sh)

CyberPanel-installation-script
CyberPanel-installation-script

Step 3. Press Enter to confirm the installation.

Step 4. Select “1” to install CyberPanel with OpenLiteSpeed. Remember that you will need a LiteSpeed Enterprise license for the Enterprise version.

Step 5. Select “Y” to install the “full service for CyberPanel” – PowerDNS server, Postfix mail transfer agent (MTA) and Pure-FTPd server.

Step 6. Select N to skip the remote MySQL setup and continue with the local MySQL server setup.

Step 7. Select the latest version of MySQL unless you are going to import a database that requires a specific older version.

Step 8. Select “s” to set the administrator password.

Step 9. Enter and confirm the administrator password.

Step 10. Select whether you want to install Memcached and its PHP extension. You can always install it later if you don’t need it now.

Step 11: Decide whether to install Redis and its PHP extensions. Again, you can install this after the installation.

Step 12. Decide whether to install WatchDog, which is currently in beta testing and automatically reboots crashing systems with software errors. If you are working on a production system and are not sure about this, we recommend not installing it.

Step 13. The installation may take up to ten minutes. After that, save the automatically generated LiteSpeed WebAdmin console password and Rainloop Webmail administrator password in the password manager. The administrator username for each login is “admin”.

Step 14. Ubuntu users should select N when asked to reboot the system.

Users of CentOS, AlmaLinux, and other enterprise distributions can select Y and proceed to the next section.

Step 15. (Ubuntu users) Due to Ubuntu-related issues, you will need to stop and disable Firewalld:

systemctl stop firewalld && systemctl disable firewalld

Step 16. Restart the system:

<strong>Reboot</strong>

If you have any problems, contact CyberPanel developers directly for Ubuntu firewall issues.

Resetting the admin password in CyberPanel

The following terminal command resets your CyberPanel administrator password. A space is added at the beginning so that the password is not displayed in the bash history. Run the command adminPass, and then write the password name new_password to reset the administrator password. Also, we recommend using a simple password to make sure the process works. After logging in, change the administrator password to a stronger one.

<strong>adminPass password!</strong>

Log in to the OpenLiteSpeed web administrator

Manage LiteSpeed web server settings from the web interface at:

https://your server's hostname:7080

  • User name “admin“.
  • The password is the same as the one you entered in CyberPanel.

To reset the LiteSpeed console password, open a terminal session and run the following command:

sudo /usr/local/lsws/admin/misc/admpass.sh

Press Enter to reset the default user to “[admin]”.

Enter and confirm the new password.

Login to Rainloop webmail

To log in to the Rainloop webmail interface, enter the address:

https://your server's hostname:8090/snappymail/?admin

  • User name “admin“.
  • The password is the same as the one you entered in CyberPanel.

To reset the Rainloop administrator password, edit the configuration file:

nano /usr/local/lscp/cyberpanel/rainloop/data/_data_/_default_/configs/application.ini

Add the following:

  • [security]
  • admin_password = "12345"

Save the settings.
