The following are the requirements needed to install CloudPanel:

  • Debian 10 Buster
  • Minimum of 1 CPU core
  • Minimum 2 GB RAM
  • Minimum 15GB of hard disk space

Let’s get started…

Installing CloudPanel on Debian 10 Buster

To start off, log in to your Debian 10 server and update the package lists on your system:

$ sudo apt update

Additionally, you can upgrade all the packages to their latest versions.

$ sudo apt upgrade -y

A few packages will be required during the installation of the CloudPanel Control Panel. So, install them as follows:

$ sudo apt install wget curl apt-transport-https

Once the requirements are in place, fetch and run the CloudPanel installation script as follows using the curl command.

$ curl -sSL | sudo bash

The script automatically installs and sets up all the components required by the control panel including Nginx, PHP, MySQL, Percona, and tons of other additional packages and dependencies.

This takes anywhere between 3-5 minutes. Therefore be patient as the installation and setup of the packages progresses.

Once the installation is complete, you will get the notification below with details of how you can access the CloudPanel control panel.
