I'm trying to install zpanel on my fresh ubuntu 12 droplet using this comand
bash <(curl -Ss https://raw.github.com/zpanel/installers/master/install/Ubuntu-12_04/10_1_1.sh)
And nothing happen, nothing is downloaded, I installed zpanel many times few months ago on another droplets using the above command.
I read an article that Digital Ocean dont work with zpanel for security risks, i dont care it, my droplet is just for develop porpuse, please can any one helpme?

Thank you.

If you try to download the script using cURL with verbose output, you'll see that the link is a 301 redirect to a different URL. The command:

curl -v https://raw.github.com/zpanel/installers/master/install/Ubuntu-12_04/10_1_1.sh


< HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
< Date: Mon, 17 Nov 2014 23:09:31 GMT
< Server: Apache
< Location: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/zpanel/installers/master/install/Ubuntu-12_04/10_1_1.sh

cURL does not follow redirects by default. So you can pass the -L flag so that it does:

bash <(curl -LSs https://raw.github.com/zpanel/installers/master/install/Ubuntu-12_04/10_1_1.sh)

Or you can just use the new link directly:

bash <(curl -Ss https://raw.githubusercontent.com/zpanel/installers/master/install/Ubuntu-12_04/10_1_1.sh)
