CentOS Web Panel (CWP) – a free web hosting control panel designed for quick and easy management of VPS servers minus the chore and effort to use ssh console for every time you want to do something, offers a huge number of options and features for server management in its control panel package.

The tutorial was prepared with our "CentOS 6" template and is meant to work on our self-managed virtual private servers.

0. Preliminary requirements:
Freshly installed "CentOS 6" template ("CentoOS 7" is not supported);

1. Server preparation

Before installing CWP we have to perform system update:

yum update -y

After update we recommend restarting server:


2. CentOS Web Panel installation

There is two possibilities to install CWP. One with MySQL and the other with MariaDB. First we have do download installation script:

cd /usr/local/src

  • Can you use 2 web panels simultaneously (e.g. webmin and centos web panel) on a vas to see which one better suites without resulting in conflicts/problems?

    It shouldn't be possible to have multiple panels on one server. You just have to try them one by one.
