This article will show you how to install VestaCP in CentOS 7 quickly.

You have briefly read about VestaCP that I wrote earlier. Now, we will try to install it in CentOS 7 and see how it works.

Server requirement

A VPS has the following configuration (this is the usual configuration):

  • OS: CentOS 7.6.1810 (Core)
  • CPU: 1 vCPU
  • RAM: 1 GB
  • HDD: 20 GB
  • User: root

Install VestaCP in CentOS 7

The installation steps are as follows.

First, use the following command to download the VestaCP installation script.

curl -O

Next, go to the installation instructions page and select the items you want to install. Then click the Generate Install Command.

select the components you want vestacp to install
Select the components you want VestaCP to install.

For example in this demo, I just want to install the following:

  • Nginx + php-fpm
  • Mail
  • DNS
  • Firewall
  • Softaculous
  • Remi Repository
  • Quota
  • MySQL

And do not want to install the following:

  • FTP
  • PostgreSQL

You can customize according to your needs.

Then you get the command line you need.

generate the command to install vestacp
Generate the command to install VestaCP.
bash --nginx yes --phpfpm yes --apache no --named yes --remi yes --vsftpd no --proftpd no --iptables yes --fail2ban yes --quota yes --exim yes --dovecot yes --spamassassin yes --clamav yes --softaculous yes --mysql yes --postgresql no --hostname vestacp.local --email [email protected] --password abc123@@

And finally, you run the installation command above. Depending on the network speed, the installation can take 5 – 20 minutes.

run the command to install vestacp
Run the command to install VestaCP.

After the installation is complete, the installation window will have results that look like this.

finish installing vestacp
Finish installing VestaCP.

You sympathize because I deleted the IP part at the access URL with port 8083.

First login to VestaCP

Now, you have a complete panel to administer your own hosting.

You have the https://IP:8083 path to access the admin window.

If you encounter a connection error, then check the firewall firewall on the CentOS 7 port that has opened the port.

If so, then check the physical network firewall.

You enter the user and password as in the installation command, ex: admin / abc123@@. And this is the first window of VestaCP.

the first login to vestacp panel

Congratulations on successfully installing VestaCP, the installation steps are quite simple.

In the following articles, I will show you how to adjust hosting VestaCP so it works better.
