CyberPanel is a control panel that offers some great features such as CSF Firewall, installations scripts for CMSes and it can work on multiple operative systems like Linux, Windows, Mac OS and etc. 

Openlite speed is an open-source web server that offers security high performance, used for handling huge traffic for the website. 

CyberPanel with OpenLiteSpeed combination is providing very powerful website performance. Installing CyberPanel with OpenLiteSpeed is a very easy and straightforward process. 

Let’s get started!

Prerequisites
- Fresh install of Ubuntu 20.04
- User privileges: root or non-root user with sudo privileges
- VPS with at least 2GB of RAM

Step 1.Update the System

Before we start with installing CyberPanel along with OpenLiteSpeed we need to update the system:

sudo apt update -y && sudo apt upgrade -y


Step 2.Remove Unnecessary Intstallations

Since CyberPanel has its own structure and relays on the OpenLiteSpeed server, we need to remove the default web server, database server, the default mail transfer agent, and default IMAP and POP3 server if they are already installed and their services are up and running. 

First, you need to stop the services before you remove them.

sudo systemctl stop mysql.service
sudo systemctl stop apache2.service
sudo systemctl stop dovecot.service
sudo systemctl stop postfix.service

Once, you stop them, you can remove the installations with the commands below:

sudo apt-get remove -y mysql-server apache2 dovecot-core postfix

After removing the unnecessary installations, reboot the system in order for the changes to take effect.

shutdown -r now

Step 3.Install CyberPanel with OpenLiteSpeed

First, we need to download the installation script.

 cd /opt
wget -O installer.sh https://cyberpanel.net/install.sh

Once, the installations script is downloaded we need to make it executable.

chmod +x installer.sh

Finally, we can run the script with the command below:

sh installer.sh

Once, the installer script is executed, you will need to select the available options while installing the panel:

Select the option Install CyberPanel by entering 1 (Install CyberPanel) on the prompt.


On the next step select the Install CyberPanel with OpenLiteSpeed option by entering 1 (Install CyberPanel with OpenLiteSpeed) on the prompt.

The next step is to install the Full service for CyberPanel (choose Y)

Do you want to setup Remote MySQL? (This will skip installation of local MySQL)

(Default = No) Remote MySQL [y/N]: N

Press, Enter to select the latest version available.

Enter "s" to set your own strong password, for the admin user.

In the next step, select to install the Memcached process (select Y).

After Memcached, select to install the Redis process (select Y) as well.

Select Yes, to set up a WatchDog. 

After this step, the installation process of CyberPanel will start automatically, and you will need to allow some time for completion. Usually, it takes up to 30 minutes.
