CentOS Web Panel (CWP)is a free web hosting control panel that offers easy management 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.

1.  Setup Hostname -

To start the CWP installation, login into your server as root and make sure to set the correct hostname.

NOTE:-  The hostname and domain name must be different on your server (for example, if is your domain on your server, then use as your fully qualified hostname).

# hostnamectl set-hostname
# hostnamectl

2. Setup Server IP Address -

To setup network, we will use nmtui (NetworkManager Text User Interface) utility, which offers a graphical user interface to configure networking by controlling Network Manager.

# yum install NetworkManager-tui
# nmtui

3.Installing CWP - 

 After setting hostname and static IP address, now you will need to update your server to the latest version and install wget utility to fetch and install the CWP installation script.

# yum -y update
# yum -y install wget
# cd /usr/local/src
# wget
# sh cwp-el7-latest

Note: The installation progress can take between 10 and 20 minutes to complete. Once the install has finished you should see a screen saying “CWP” installed and list of credentials required to access the panel.

Once ready, press “ENTER” for server reboot. If the system does not reboot automatically simply type “reboot” to reboot the server.

# reboot

4 .CWP Configuration -

 After server reboot, login into server as root, once login you will see different welcome screen with information about the logged users and the current disk space usage.

Now log in to your CentOS Web Panel server using the link provided by the installer on your server.
