Install CWP and login to CWP dashboard as root or a user with root privilege via http://your-ip:2030

Follow steps below to setup CentOS Web Panel on your VPS:Follow steps below to setup CentOS Web Panel on your VPS:

Login to your server as root :

Go to /usr/local/src directory and download CWP installer package there:


Once downloaded, issue one simple command below to start the installer:

It will start by firstly check whether Apache or MySQL is installed and running. After that, you may simply wait the process till it done. The whole process should be automatic.


The CWP installation progress will take some times because several software will be compiled from source for improved performance, security and flexibility. In my case it is almost like installing WHM/cPanel.


Do not forget to note down the information displayed on screen.

Now hit Enter on your keyboard and your server should reboot automatically. Next time you try to login to your server via SSH, the display will be different. You will now see CWP welcome message.

Open up your favorite web browser (Firefox, Chrome, etc) and open your newly installed CWP admin GUI at one of these URL’s :

http://your-ip-address:2030 or https://your-ip-address:2031

You can use https:// in case if you want to login to your CWP server in middle of unsecure area like public Wifi. Otherwise http:// is much more faster to access.


CWP use “root” as default Administrator username and the same password you use to login to your server via SSH as root.

CWP Resource Usage

Default installation of CWP consumes very low resource usage. Here’s example of mine:



CPU load and disk

That’s considered low resource usage for a web hosting panel. Also, default installation already includes latest stable version of PHP with Zend Optimizer and ionCube PHP Loader.

Add  Nameservers

Name servers are often called DSN servers, every web site has two name servers to which it is pointed. Setting up NS must be done at both domain registrar and hosting account (server-end). In CWP you can define your default NS by going to DNS Functions >> Edit Nameservers IPs. Enter your desired Nameservers and put your server’s IP next to each followed by clicking Save Changes button. See illustration below:
