Install CentOS Web Panel on CentOS 6 Server

Table of Contents


The CentOS Web Panel (CWP) is a free control panel that can be installed on a minimal CentOS 6 installation. It installs a number of packages and provides a GUI allowing you to configure services typically used for hosting websites, e-mail, databases, and DNS.


First, create a new CentOS 6.x server in your DCD. Then log in and run updates to ensure you have the latest packages installed:

yum -y update;yum install wget -y

Set your server's host name. First, use the hostname command at the command line:

hostname centwp.localdomain

Make the change permanent by editing the /etc/sysconfig/network file:

vim /etc/sysconfig/network

Set these parameters:


Finally, reboot the server (if necessary based on packages) to ensure all updates take effect.

shutdown -r now


Install the web panel:

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

Reboot the server.

# shutdown -r now

Verify that the Web Panel is working

Once the server is back online, access the web panel at a resolvable hostname or IP address on port 2030:


Log in as the root user. You will be at the main page of your CentOS WebPanel. From here, you can configure your server and its services.
