Install VestaCP on Debian

Posted on


Introduction

VestaCP is a simple and clever hosting control panel with many features. Its installation is simple, and requires just one command. Vesta CP is beneficial for shared hosting, because one of its core features is that packages commonly used for shared hosting get installed automatically. This includes DNS server, mail server, and so forth.

Requirements

  • Debian 7 (Wheezy)
  • Curl
  • 512MB+ RAM
  • 10 Minutes

Installation

As mentioned above, the installation process is done using a single command which installs all of the required packages, then configures them.

First, we need to download the install script using the following command:

curl -O http://vestacp.com/pub/vst-install.sh

After we’ve downloaded the installation script, we have to set the permissions to run it:

chmod +x vst-install.sh

As of now, we can proceed with the installation of VestaCP using three different modes:

Nginx with PHP-FPM

bash vst-install.sh --nginx yes --phpfpm yes --apache no --vsftpd yes --proftpd no --exim yes --dovecot yes --spamassassin yes --clamav yes --named yes --iptables yes --fail2ban yes --mysql yes --postgresql no --remi yes --quota no --hostname <SERVER_HOSTNAME> --email <ADMIN_EMAIL> --password <ADMIN_PASSWORD>

Nginx with Apache

bash vst-install.sh --nginx yes --apache yes --phpfpm no --vsftpd yes --proftpd no --exim yes --dovecot yes --spamassassin yes --clamav yes --named yes --iptables yes --fail2ban yes --mysql yes --postgresql no --remi yes --quota no --hostname <SERVER_HOSTNAME> --email <ADMIN_EMAIL> --password <ADMIN_PASSWORD>

Apache only

bash vst-install.sh --nginx no --apache yes --phpfpm no --vsftpd yes --proftpd no --exim yes --dovecot yes --spamassassin yes --clamav yes --named yes --iptables yes --fail2ban yes --mysql yes --postgresql no --remi yes --quota no --hostname <SERVER_HOSTNAME> --email <ADMIN_EMAIL> --password <ADMIN_PASSWORD>

Conclusion

Your VestaCP panel is installed and ready for use. Happy hacking!
