Imagine you’ve got a $5 budget as monthly website maintenance, and you also want to tune server/hosting performance? It’s possible for you to get a starter hosting package.
But today I will tell you to build a hosting control panel on a $5 VPS with FastPanel.
• General understanding of web servers
• Familiarity with Linux OS and command line
• Ability to edit files with nano, vi or vim
#connect to your server via IP address ssh [email protected] #Debian 8, Debian 9, Debian 10, Ubuntu 18.04, Ubuntu 20.04 apt-get update; apt-get install wget #CentOS ( 7 or later ) yum makecache; yum install wget #Execute the setup script wget http://repo.fastpanel.direct/install_fastpanel.sh -O - | bash -
You’ll get the welcome message with the control panel login information. You can have a look at demo site: https://demo3.fastpanel.direct/
Some problems you may meet while setting up the fastpanel on your VPS.
- SELinux Enable
You need to disable SELinux before you install the fastpanel software
Modify the state of SELinux on the file : /etc/selinux/config then restart the VPS # ~ sudo shutdown -r now //check the result after rebooting... # ~ sestatus
2. HTTPD service installed
When you create the VPS, it’ll be installed httpd service ( apache ) and started on boot. You will need install the fastpanel with option –force
# ~ cd /tmp/ # ~ wget http://repo.fastpanel.direct/install_fastpanel.sh # ~ chmod +x install_fastpanel.sh # ~ ./install_fastpanel.sh -f
3. Mysql service installed
If you’ve got this message:
Installing web service: nginx, httpd, php
Oops! I’ve failed to install control panel… Please look for the reason in “/tmp/install_fastpanel.debug” log file.’
Feel free to send the log to my creators via ticket at https://cp.fastpanel.direct/ and they will do their best to help you!
Here is the workaround solution
- Remove installed failed fastpanel
- Modify the installation script
#completely remove fastpanel yum -y remove fastpanel2* #remove installed mysql software yum -y remove MariaDB-common
Modify the script: /usr/share/fastpanel2/bin/install-web.sh
#Change this line yum install -y nginx httpd httpd-itk php php-fpm php-mysqlnd.x86_64 php-gd php-ioncube mod_fcgid mod_rpaf || InstallationFailed #TO: yum install -y nginx* httpd* httpd-itk* php* php-fpm php-mysqlnd.x86_64 php-gd php-ioncube mod_fcgid mod_rpaf || InstallationFailed #Save that file. #start like-new installation fastpanel # ~ cd /tmp/ # ~ ./install_fastpanel.sh -f
Oops It works!
