Install CentOS Web Panel (CWP) on CentOS 7

I will be installing CWP (CentOS Web Panel) on a KVM VPS server with CentOS 7 from with a static IP address and hostname .

Setup Hostname

1. To start the CWP installation, login into your server as root and make sure to set the correct hostname.

Important: The hostname and domain name must be different on your server (for example, if is your domain on your server, then use as your fully qualified hostname).

# hostnamectl set-hostname
# hostnamectl

Setup Server IP Addresses

2. To setup network, we will use nmtui (NetworkManager Text User Interface) utility, which offers a graphical user interface to configure networking by controlling Network Manager.

# yum install NetworkManager-tui
# nmtui

# cd /usr/local/src
# wget
# sh cwp-el7-latest

Please be patient as the installation progress can take between 10 and 20 minutes to complete. Once the install has finished you should see a screen saying “CWP” installed and list of credentials required to access the panel. Make sure to copy or write down the information and keep it safe:

Once ready, press “ENTER” for server reboot. If the system does not reboot automatically simply type “reboot” to reboot the server.
