aaPanel is a control panel free server and open source, which is simple and lightweight. With this software, we can manage servers in a web hosting environment.
aaPanel also runs well on low-resource servers. This software offers users a simple but powerful control panel, which will allow us to manage the web server through a GUI (graphical user interface) web-based.
aaPanel provides the one-click installation function, and thanks to this we will have the possibility of one-click installation of the development environment and LNMP/LAMP software. With this automatic installer, different applications can be installed with just one click. Its main goal is to help users save implementation time, so they can focus on their own projects.
How To Install and Use aaPanel on AlmaLinux 8
Before you start to set up aaPanel, you must log in to your server as a non-root user with sudo privileges and set up a basic firewall. To do this, you can follow our article the Initial Server Setup with AlmaLinux 8.
Now follow the steps below to complete this guide.
Installing aaPanel on AlmaLinux 8
First, you need to update your local package index with the following command:
sudo dnf update
Then, use the following command to download and install the aaPanel installer script:
wget -O install.sh http://www.aapanel.com/script/install_6.0_en.sh && bash install.sh
This will take some time to complete. When your installation is completed, you will get the following output:
Output Complete! success ================================================================== Congratulations! Installed successfully! ================================================================== aaPanel Internet Address: https://your-server-ip:7800/f7819b1c aaPanel Internal Address: https://your-server-ip:7800/f7819b1c username: wisdrbf3 password: 554e22c5 Warning: If you cannot access the panel, release the following port (7800|888|80|443|20|21) in the security group ================================================================== Time consumed: 7 Minute!
Check if aaPanel is listening in the correct port which is 7800 in my case:
sudo netstat -nltp
Output tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:7800 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
Now you must allow the port through the AlmaLinux firewall:
# sudo firewall-cmd --add-port=7800/tcp --permanent # sudo firewall-cmd --reload

At this point, you can access your aaPanel web interface on AlmaLinux 8 by using the URL that was given to you from the installation:

It will take some time to complete.
After the installation is completed, you can see the status of the packages.
