Installing and configuring Vesta Control Panel in Ubuntu 16.04


In this tutorial we will show you how to install Vesta Control Panel on Ubuntu 16.04 Vesta Control Panel is an open source alternative to CPanel.It has the same functionality as cpanel including Web Server, DNS, MySQL Database, Mail, and FTP Server. Vesta uses Nginx for the site's back-end and Apache for the front end.

So far Vesta is the best CPanel alternative that I have found that works so well out of the box and is super easy to install.


This will install Vesta with Email, FTP, Spam Filter, Antivirus, Firewall, Database, DNS, and Fail2ban.


Connect to your server via SSH
ssh [email protected]
Download installation script
curl -O http://vestacp.com/pub/vst-install.sh
###Run it

Note: Replace hostname, email and password with your own and run as root.

sudo 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 hostname --email email --password password --force
