Installing and configuring Vesta Control Panel in Ubuntu 16.04

3 years ago 25

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.
