How to add Cpanel to my existing Wordpress 1-click installation?

Posted July 22, 2020 1.5k views

Is it possible to add Cpanel if I already configured my droplet and finished my website?

If it’s possible, please provide me a guide to follow along. It’s my first server config, so I wouldn’t want to proceed without a confirmation, thanks.

Hello, @305gm

You can check our existing tutorial on how to install cPanel here:

You can also check the official cPanel installation guide:

cPanel is a third party application which is also available through our Marketplace. 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.

Keep in mind that if you use the one-click app this will spin up a new droplet. If you still want to use your existing droplet you can check the first two links that I’ve sent.

Please refer to below link for further details:

Hope that this helps!

cPanel is a convenient application that allows users to administer servers through a GUI interface instead of the traditional command line. Although the installation for cPanel is relatively simple, the script does take several hours to run. Here's how to install cPanel on a virtual server running Centos 6

Hello, 305gm

I strongly recommend installing cPanel on a fresh Droplet, otherwise, it could cause issues with your existing Droplet, and also the installation is most likely to fail.

This is also the suggestion from the official cPanel documentation:

Only install cPanel & WHM on a freshly-installed operating system.

However, if you want to give it a try anyway, in order to install cPanel on an existing server you can use this command here:

cd /home && curl -o latest -L && sh latest

Note that you should definitely take a backup of your Droplet before doing so.

Hope that this helps.
