Question

how can i install cPanel or any other tools to my existing droplet

Hi I have a droplet with 4 GB Memory / 25 GB Disk / NYC1 - LAMP on Ubuntu 20.04

there is already an app there along with its domain. I want to browse the files and the MySql DB like what we are doing by cPanel but I couldn’t, I am not familiar with the console commands to call myself a professional console user, so if there is any way to install cPanel or any other browsing tool to my existing droplet please help me. thanks

Hello, @goldenauctionsa

We have an existing tutorial on how to install cPanel/WHM on CentOS 6. If your CentOS version is newer you can still follow the listed steps in the tutorial as the process is not different from installing it on CentOS 6, the same rules apply to CentOS 7. You can check the tutorial here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-cpanel-on-a-virtual-server-running-centos-6

To install cPanel & WHM on your server, run the following command:

cd /home && curl -o latest -L https://securedownloads.cpanel.net/latest && sh latest

You can also check the official cPanel docs:

https://docs.cpanel.net/installation-guide/install/

You can also quickly deploy a cPanel/WHM droplet from our marketplace:

https://marketplace.digitalocean.com/apps/cpanel-whm

New installations of cPanel come with a 15-day free trial. For further use beyond that point, a valid license will need to be purchased directly through cPanel. https://store.cpanel.net/view/cpanel/license-options?type=VPS

Hope this helps! Regards, Alex

Hello there,

You can now run cPanel/WHM on Ubuntu which is a great alternative.

This document describes the system requirements for your cPanel & WHM installation on an Ubuntu® server. You can install cPanel & WHM on Ubuntu version 20.04 LTS.

If there is a new product available in the marketplace we will update this thread with the information.

Hope that this helps!
