Zpanel – A Good Cpanel Alternative Open Source

For every paid software, always you can find an opensource alternative, sometimes the alternative is better and complete like (Gimp vs Photoshop) sometimes not. Today we will see a good alternative to Cpanel, the well known paid hosting / server panel, it is zpanel.

ZPanel is a free to download and use Web hosting control panel written to work effortlessly with Microsoft Windows and POSIX (Linux, UNIX and MacOSX) based servers or computers. This solution can turn a home or professional server into a fully fledged, easy to use and manage web hosting server.

Zpanel is easy to install and to configure. In this tutorial i installed Zpanel in CentOS 6.3.

1- Before to start we need to install some requered dependencies:

yum install ld-linux.so.2 curl

2- Download the  installation script from the  Zpnel   website (Last stable  release

wget http://www.zvps.co.uk/sites/default/files/downloads/centos-6-3/package/installer-x86_64-install.sh.x.tar.gz 

3- Now  extract the script  and  run

tar -zxvf installer-x86_64-install.sh.x.tar.gz 

4- Make the script  executable
