How to Install CyberPanel on Contabo VPS

Step 1. Login to Your Contabo Server Via SSH

I used PuTTy to login to my server.

  • Use your IP address under Host Name
  • Port number is 22
  • Connection type: SSH
  • Click Open

Step 2. Login as ROOT

Be sure to login as ROOT and not the username admin to have full access/permission on your server.

Your password is the one you entered during checkout. Just copy and right click to paste it on PuTTY. Note that it will not display your password for security purposes.

Step 4. Run the CyberPanel Installation Script

Just copy and right click paste it to the command line and wait for installation choices on the next step.

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

Step 5.  Select Litespeed Version

Cyber Panel Installer

Once you encounter CyberPanel Installer v2.3.2, Choose 1.

  • 1. Install Cyberpanel
  • 2. Exit

You will be then given two choices which LiteSpeed version you’d like to install.

  • 1. Install CyberPanel with OpenLiteSpeed.
  • 2. Install Cyberpanel with LiteSpeed Enterprise.
  • 3. Exit.

OpenLitesSpeed allows you to have unlimited domain while LiteSpeed Enterprise allows you to have single domain with a 2GB RAM limit.

In this case, I’ll be choosing 1. Install CyberPanel with OpenLiteSpeed, since Contabo have 8GB RAM. It’ll be a waste if I have only one domain running unless it is resource-needy application.

Step 5. Choose Installation Options and Add ons

After choosing CyberPanel with OpenLiteSpeed, you will be prompted with this message:

Install Full service for CyberPanel? This will include PowerDNS, Postfix and PureFTPd.

Full installation [Y/n]

I chose the Full service installation. Just type Y in the command line.

Do you want to setup Remote MYSQL? (This will skip installation of local MYSQL.)

(Default = No) Remote MYSQL [y/N]

I chose No. Just type N in the command line.

If you want to have a specific version of CyberPanel installed, type its version or click Enter to install its latest version.

Please to choose default password 1234567, randomly generate on (recommended) or specify the admin password?

Choose (d)efault, (r)andom or (s)et password: [d/r/s]

I chose to generate new password. Just type r in the command line. After the installation, you’ll be given a randomly generated password.

Do you wish to install Memcached process and its PHP extension?

Please select [Y/n]

I chose yes. Just type Y in the command line.

Do you wish to install Redis process and its PHP extension?

Please select [Y/n]

I chose yes. Just type Y in the command line.

Do you like to setup Watchdog (beta) for Web service and Database service?

Please type Yes or no (with capital Y, default Yes)

Just type Y to restart your server.

Step 8. Access your newly installed CyberPanel

Accessing your CyberPanel through your browser needs an 8090 port. To do that go to https://<your server IP address>:8090

For example, your server IP is 79.143.182.242, just add 8090 after 242. It will now be 79.143.182.242:8090

Once you’ve access your CyberPanel, your browser will prompt a security warning.
