Installing Webuzo on VPS

We’ll see the step by step guide for Webuzo installation on Centos server

What is Webuzo

Webuzo is Softaculous STANDALONE and it doesn’t need a PANEL.
You can install Webuzo on any VPS, Dedicated Server or deploy it in the form of Virtual Appliances.
Webuzo has all the 200 Apps of Softaculous and we are adding more as well 🙂
In addition it also has Domain Management Capabilities, MySQL Management, phpMyAdmin, FTP Support, etc.

So what is so different about Webuzo ?
– Well you dont need a control panel in the first place, so you save on the resources a Control Panel uses.
– The performance of your Apps are much better.
– You are in full control of your machine and no other user can interfere with your machine
– You can deploy 200 Apps.
– PHP, MySQL, PERL is also supported.

Requirement for installation of Webuzo

  • Newly installed CentOS 6.x / 7.x or Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.x / 7.x or Scientific Linux 6.x / 7.x (x86_64) / Ubuntu LTS
  • YUM / apt-get / tar / wget packages installed
  • RAM – Minimum 1 GB (Recommended 2 GB for best performance)
  • Disk Space – Minimum 5 GB (Recommended 10 GB for best performance)
  • Open Ports – 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 21, 22, 25, 53, 80, 143, 443, 465, 993 and 3306 (It is recommended to keep these ports open on your server)

Note : There should be no PHP, Apache, MySQL installed on the server

  1. Open a Shell Terminal (e.g. PuTTY) and SSH to your server

wget -N

chmod 0755


This will install the LAMP Stack, DNS Server and FTP server along with Webuzo
You should be able to see a screen like this, upon successful installation.

Possible error:

Usually, Apache installed by default on the server conflicts with Webuzo’s Apache Binary located at /usr/local/apps/apache resulting in the “Internal Server Error”.

Fix for the same will be to remove the default installation of Apache from the server and remove/install Apache using Webuzo.

Step 1) Remove default Apache service from the server
Root > yum -y remove httpd

This will setup the required Web Server and other important configurations. Note : A log file of the installation process will be created – /root/webuzo-install.log
