1. Preparing the server

1.1. First of all, update the system and install some required packages.

Command: yum update -y

Command: yum install wget -y

 

1.2. Now you need to set a FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) Hostname for your server. Do not use your actual domain name www.your-domain.tld. The FQDN Hostname should be, for example, server.your-domain.tld and point to your server IP address. Let’s set it using the hostname command.

Command: hostname server.your-domain.tld

 

1.3. CentOS Web Panel developers recommend rebooting your server before starting the installation.
Command: reboot

 

2. CentOS Web Panel installation

Now download the CentOS Web Panel installer script and run it in your server command line.

Command: cd /usr/local/src && wget http://centos-webpanel.com/cwp-el7-latest && sh cwp-el7-latest

 

After a successful installation you should see a similar output in your server terminal.

 

Output:
