CyberPanel is a next-generation hosting control panel, which provides a friendly user interface. The CyberPanel app provides a One-Click installer for OpenLiteSpeed, LSCache, WordPress, Prestashop, Joomla, Magento, and Git. It also automates the initial setup for components like mail service and DNS to reduce the time it takes to get set up.

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: CyberPanel should be fully installed within 10-20 minutes after the Compute Instance has finished provisioning.

Configuration Options

  • Supported distributions: Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
  • Recommended minimum plan: All plan types and sizes can be used with CyberPanel.

Limited Sudo User

You need to fill out the following fields to automatically create a limited sudo user, with a strong generated password for your new Compute Instance. This account will be assigned to the sudo group, which provides elevated permissions when running commands with the sudo prefix.

  • Limited sudo user: Enter your preferred username for the limited user. No Capital Letters, Spaces, or Special Characters
Locating The Generated Sudo Password

A password is generated for the limited user and stored in a .credentials file in their home directory, along with application specific passwords. This can be viewed by running: cat /home/$USERNAME/.credentials

For best results, add an account SSH key for the Cloud Manager user that is deploying the instance, and select that user as an authorized_user in the API or by selecting that option in the Cloud Manager. Their SSH pubkey will be assigned to both root and the limited user.

  • Disable root access over SSH: To block the root user from logging in over SSH, select Yes. You can still switch to the root user once logged in, and you can also log in as root through Lish.
Accessing The Instance Without SSH
If you disable root access for your deployment and do not provide a valid Account SSH Key assigned to the authorized_user, you will need to login as the root user via the Lish console and run cat /home/$USERNAME/.credentials to view the generated password for the limited user.

Getting Started after Deployment

Access your CyberPanel App

  1. When the installation completes, log into your Linode via SSH, replacing with your Linode’s IP address, and entering your Linode’s root password when prompted:

    ssh root@
  2. You should see the CyberPanel welcome message when logging into the Linode. This will include instructions for accessing CyberPanel, phpMyAdmin, and RainLoop in your web browser. Replace with your Linode’s IP address.

    Welcome to LiteSpeed One-Click CyberPanel Server.
    To keep this server secure, the firewalld is enabled.
    CyberPanel One-Click Quickstart guide:
    In a web browser, you can view:
    * CyberPanel:
    * phpMyAdmin:
    * RainLoop:
    On the server:
    * You can get the CyberPanel admin password with the following command:
    sudo cat /root/.litespeed_password
    * You can get the Mysql cyberpanel user password with the following command:
    sudo cat /root/.db_password
    System Status:
    Load : 0.06, 0.53, 0.43
    CPU  : 30.0763%
    RAM  : 355/3936MB (9.02%)
    Disk : 7/79GB (10%)
    Your CyberPanel is up to date
    Do you wish to update the system now? This will update the web server as well. [Y/n]?
  3. Obtain your CyberPanel administrator password from the command line.

    cat .litespeed_password

    You should see output similar to the following:


    In the above example, the password is qN1Jo7XKCekN8ZAV.

  4. Visit the CyberPanel administration panel by visiting your Linode’s IP in a web browser on port 8090. For example, if your IP address is, you would visit

    CyberPanel uses a self-signed certificate issued by LiteSpeedCommunity. Because it is not signed by a common Certificate Authority, your browser may warn about the security of the connection and require you to add a security exception.
  5. Log in to the administration panel using the username admin and the password you obtained in step three.

  6. You should now see the administration panel.

    Now that you’ve accessed your dashboard, checkout the official CyberPanel 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.
