Download vcPanel

Please dowload the vcPanel from and upload the tar file to your sever. Then extract it.

Configure vcPanel

You may need to edit two files, config.php and adminauth.php.

config.php contains the following. You may need to edit the required fields, all are self-explanatory.

define("_DB_HOST", "localhost");  // vcpanel db host
define("_DB_NAME", "vcpanel_db"); // vcpanel  db name
define("_DB_USER", "vcpanel_dbuser"); // vcpanel db user
define("_DB_USER_PASSWORD",  "vcpaneldbpasswird"); // vcpanel db user password
define("_DOC_ROOT","/path-to-vcpanel-installation ") ;
 // vcpanel document root no trailing slashes eg : /home/user/public_html/vcpanel
 // Path to php client binary,no php-cgi paths. remember php-cli path
//ssh key type for rsa  it will be "ssh-rsa" , if it is dsa it will be "ssh-dsa"
 //path to private key. Remember make it out side document root , eg : /home/user/key/id_rsa
define("SSH_PUBLIC_KEY","/pathto -key/");
 //path to public key . Remember make it out side document root ,
 // eg : /home/user/key/

Now you may need to edit adminauth.php. This contains the admin login name and password. Make it harder.

define("_ADMIN_USER","admin");     // admin username
define("_ADMIN_PASS","pass");     // admin password make it very hard , very very hard

Set permissions

You may need to set the following permissions:

chmod 666 vadmin/.htaccess
chmod 777 tmp/
chmod 777 vadmin/uploads/plan
chmod 777 vadmin/uploads/template
chmod 777 languages/

Create Database

Now create a MySQL database with the database user name and database user password that you use in config.php. Give privileges to above database with the user name and password. Now restore the database vcpanel.sql to your database.

Create SSH Keys

Now you may need to create ssh public and private keys and upload them to your installation server, to a folder outside your document root. Make sure to secure the folder. Don’t allow anyone to access it. Only give permission to vcPanel scripts to access that folder. If you don’t know how to do it please contact us. To know how to create ssh keys please proceed with the following steps.

1) ssh to your server:

# ssh

2) Generate keys:

# ssh-keygen -t rsa

Now hit the ENTER key until you get the command prompt back. Please remember that there’s no need to give a password for the ssh key.

3) Now copy the keys id_rsa and from ~/.ssh/ to your key folder.

# ls -al ~/.ssh/
# cp -v ~/.ssh/* /path-to-your-key-folder-for-vtonf/

Login to admin Panel

You can login to admin panel from http://yourvcpanelinstallationurl/vadmin/

Install Product Key

You will get your product key from our license portal as soon as you signed up. If you are a reseller you can use the same product key in all vcPanel installations. Update the product key with vcPanel -> Product key.

Basic Settings

Make sure you may need to set up the basic settings and admin account from vcPanel admin.

Secure vcPanel access

You must limit access to your admin panel from certain IPs. Go to vcPanel -> Secure access.

Set up Cron

You may need to setup a daily cron job as follows:

0 1 * * *  php /path-to-vcpanel-install/script/backupcron.php   /path-to-vcpanel-install 

Node Preparation

Note: You must follow the instructions given below for building a node (hardware node) for deployment. Please remember at this time vcPanel is only supporting Openvz virtualization technology. If you have any difficulty in configuring your node, please contact us. We will build your node.  

Hardware Requirements:

You need a good server for a live node, with lots of CPU and RAM. Also select high speed hard disk for better performance. Its DISK partitioning must be as follows: / = 10 GB /vz = Big space for creating vps. /backup = It must be 2x size of /vz for taking backups. Remember to use a second hard disk for /backup. Some operating systems will not use /vz as vps home folders. If so you may need to make soft links to /vz and /etc/vz/conf.  

Software Requirements:

We recommend to use CentOS 5.x operating system on your node. This will help you to configure bandwidth monitoring options easily. vcPanel supports any Linux operating system. Remember don't customize your /etc/bashrc. Some operating systems/datacenters have such customizations which will prevent OpenSSH communication protocols.  

OpenVZ installation:

Now you may need to install OpenVZ. If you already have it please skip this step. A lot quick installation guides are available; please read some below: Note: If you still see an issue with installing Openvz please contact us.

Install vcPanel Tools:

This is very important. You must download the following script and run it in this node. This will create stats (bandwidth, load, resource usage, etc.) generation scheme in your node. It is very important for hosting. # wget # tar -xzf setupnode.tar.gz # cd setupnode/ # bash install  

Set up Openssh Public key:

This is very important to set up public key access from vcPanel to this node. Otherwise vcPanel is not able to communicate with your server. Download the same public key you configured in vcPanel config.php and do the following: # cd ~root/.ssh # touch authorized_keys Now copy your public key to authorized_keys and save it. # chattr +ia authorized_keys  

Add node inside vcPanel:

Now go to vcPanel admin panel and add node from Node Management -> Add Node.  

Create IP Pool:

For creating a VPS inside this node you may need to register the IP pools. Go to vcPanel admin IP Management -> Add IP(s) to Node and add your IPs.  

Upload Plans:

Now you need to upload your vps plans to the /etc/vz/conf folder. Or you can sync them from the vcPanel control panel: VPS Plans -> Sync Plan  

Upload Templates:

Now you need to upload your OS templates to the /vz/template/cache folder, or you can sync them from the vcPanel control panel: VPS Templates -> Sync Template. It will take more time depending on the size of the template.
