Hello, friends. In this opportunity, I will show you how to install Cloud Panel on Debian 10 It is a fairly simple process but that allows us to have a simple and effective web administration panel.
According to the project website:
CloudPanel is a free server control panel for PHP, built for the cloud for maximum performance and security.
It is compatible with many of the most popular cloud services such as AWS, Google Cloud, or Microsoft Azure but we can also install it on our server without any problem.
Some of the main features of CloudPanel are:
- CloudPanel is free. So, No Contract, hidden costs, limitations, or restrictions.
- A clean and easy-to-use server control panel to get things done in no time.
- Supports more than ten languages.
- Free SSL Certificates for all of your domains, with one-click, automatically renewed.
- Ultra-fast lightweight components like NGINX, PHP-FPM, and MySQL for maximum performance.
So it is a very valid option for projects of all types of sizes.
Despite being so powerful and useful, CloudPanel is only available for Debian 10 and servers with at least 2Gb of RAM and 15 Gb of disk space. Logically, the more capacity the server has, the better.
For this post, you need to have root access.
So, open a terminal or connect to the server via SSH and update the system.
apt update apt upgrade
Then install some packages needed for the tutorial like
apt install curl wget
Fortunately, the installation of Cloud Panel is quite simple to perform and it is all thanks to a script provided by the developers. So, the download and installation of Cloud Panel are basically summarized in this command:
curl -sSL https://installer.cloudpanel.io/ce/v1/install.sh | bash
And there will start the whole process of installing packages, libraries, and dependencies as well as the installation of CloudPanel itself.
At the end, you will see an output screen similar to this one
Now open your web browser and go to
https://your-server:8443 and you will see the admin user creation screen.
Then you will see the login screen:
Log in with your credentials and you will see the CloudPanel dashboard.
So, enjoy it
Cloudpanel is a great solution to have a PHP panel where you can deploy an application without several problems. Being free and without restrictions makes it ideal for small or educational projects without economic risk.
