Install aaPanel on Ubuntu 20.04. In this article, I will introduce to you a free hosting panel software called aaPanel.

Introducing aaPanel

aaPanel is a free hosting panel software international version of BAOTA panel. BAOTA panel has been developed since 2014 in China. And currently this panel is being used the most in this country.

In 2019, BAOTA developed an international version called aaPanel. Although this version was developed in a short time, it is worth using.

Prepare the aaPanel server

To perform the demo, I use an Ubuntu server 20.04 with the following configuration:

  • OS: Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS (Focal Fossa)
  • CPU: 1 vCPU
  • RAM: 1 GB
  • HDD: 10 GB
  • User: root

You can see more about aaPanel’s hardware recommendations here.

To install aaPanel, use the command below.

wget -O && sudo bash

A message will appear on the terminal window, type y to agree to the installation.

Do you want to install aaPanel to the /www directory now?(y/n): y

You wait a few minutes (depending on the speed of the server), the installation is complete and there will be a notification as below.

Congratulations! Installed successfully!

Time consumed: 2 Minute!

Login to aaPanel.

Then the first stack setup window of aaPanel will appear. Here there will be 2 stacks for you to choose from: LEMP and LAMP.

Select stack when installing aaPanel.

It is recommended that you choose LEMP stack to achieve better speed. However, I will change some options as follows:

  • MySQL: choose MariaDB 10.4 instead of MySQL 5.7, MariaDB has much better speed than MySQL.
  • PHP: choose PHP 8.0 instead of PHP 7.4, version 8.0 offers better php processing speed.
  • DNS server: do not check this box because most of the domain’s DNS will be managed by the domain name service provider.
  • Mail server: do not select for 2 reasons:
    • Low configuration server (< 1-2 GB RAM) will not allow the mail server to operate well.
    • Mail server administration is very difficult when you have to fight spam. Instead you can use free email services for your website.

After setup is complete, click the One-click Install button for the panel to begin installing the necessary stack.

The Task list window will appear, which will show how the packages are being installed. You can turn this window off while you wait or to watch the process unfold.
