Not able to setup dns with zpanel. My domain is showing zpanel login screen.

I have created a droplet having Ubuntu and installed zpanel in it. Then I updated name server on my registrar’s website to point to digital ocean, In digital ocean I updated the DNS as mentioned on this “” article. Upto this point everything is working fine. Now the problem is when I am hitting my domain url its showing me zpanel cp login screen. I added domain name in zpanel and point zpanel name server to droplet IP but nothing is working here. It still shows zpanel login screen. I am not understanding what I am missing here. I am working on it from last 3 days on it but could not get success on setting up my website. Please help me to get this thing done. Thanks in advance

Hello, all

I have not personally used zPanel, but to me, this project looks completely abandoned. There have been no updates to that repository for the past 7 years:

The last installer script which was supported was for Ubuntu 12, which has been EOF for a very long time:

I would recommend choosing a different control panel. You could start by having a look at this page here for some useful Control panel tutorials:

There a lot of web panels available (most of them are free to use) that you can choose in order to manage your server. What I can recommend is to try them as in this way you can see if it really suits your needs.

I will list the top control panels that I recommend:

CentOS Web Panel Vesta CP Webmin Ajenti ISPConfig

and of course I need to mention Plesk although it’s not free it’s been available for a while and it’s always been the main cPanel competitor. It has a lot of build-in features and a lot of plugins that you can install and you can always reach to their support team if needed which is something that might come handy in time.

You’ve now got some great options if you want to use a control panel with your server but you don’t want to pay for a license. I’ve tried to lay out most of the available options, but which one is best will ultimately depend on your individual needs.

Regards, Alex


Would you mind posting a copy of your DNS Zone in a reply so that we can take a closer look at it and see if there’s anything that may be out of place?

Also, other than DNS, has anything else been modified?
