CentOS Web Panel (CWP) is a free web hosting control panel that offers easy managemet of multiple servers (both Dedicated and VPS) without the need to access server through SSH for every small task that you need to complete.

It is a feature rich control panel, which comes with a high number of options and features for quick server management.

Considerations were taken into account through the development of the web panel in terms of security functionalities and the interface.

Requirements Before the Initialization of CentOS Web Panel installer:

  • CentOS Web Panel only support static IP addresses. CWP do not support dynamic, sticky, or internal IP addresses.
  • Do not provide an uninstaller. After you install CWP, you must reinstall the server to remove it.
  • Only install CWP on a freshly installed operating system without any configuration changes.

System Requirements

Make sure that you complete the following tasks before you start the installation process:

1. Setup Hostname

2. Setup Server IP addresses

Define additional IP address, subnet address, and default gateway IP address for your server — your service provider can provide you with this information.
