aaPanel is a free and open source web hosting control panel. It allows you to manage the server’s web server, websites, databases, FTP, and more through a simple web-based interface. Through aaPanel, you can quickly install a LEMP (NGINX) or LAMP (Apache) stack on your server and start hosting your websites.

Deploying a Marketplace App

The Linode Marketplace allows you to easily deploy software on a Compute Instance using the Cloud Manager. See Get Started with Marketplace Apps for complete steps.

  1. Log in to the Cloud Manager and select the Marketplace link from the left navigation menu. This displays the Linode Create page with the Marketplace tab pre-selected.

  2. Under the Select App section, select the app you would like to deploy.

  3. Complete the form by following the steps and advice within the Creating a Compute Instance guide. Depending on the Marketplace App you selected, there may be additional configuration options available. See the Configuration Options section below for compatible distributions, recommended plans, and any additional configuration options available for this Marketplace App.

  4. Click the Create Linode button. Once the Compute Instance has been provisioned and has fully powered on, wait for the software installation to complete. If the instance is powered off or restarted before this time, the software installation will likely fail.

To verify that the app has been fully installed, see Get Started with Marketplace Apps > Verify Installation. Once installed, follow the instructions within the Getting Started After Deployment section to access the application and start using it.

Estimated deployment time: aaPanel should be fully installed within 5-10 minutes after the Compute Instance has finished provisioning.

Configuration Options

  • Supported distributions: CentOS 7
  • Recommended plan: All plan types and sizes can be used.

Getting Started after Deployment

Access your aaPanel App

  1. Log in to your instance through SSH or Lish.

  2. Run the following command to obtain your login information for your aaPanel dashboard:

    cat /root/.aapanel_info

    aaPanel Login Details

  3. Once you visit the URL and enter the login credentials you will be prompted to choose which One-Click services (LAMP/LNMP) you would like to install:

    aaPanel One-Click

Now that you’ve accessed your dashboard, checkout the official aaPanel documentation to learn how to further configure your instance.

Currently, Linode does not manage software and systems updates for Marketplace Apps. It is up to the user to perform routine maintenance on software deployed in this fashion.
