How To Set up aaPanel on Debian 11

Before you start to set up aaPanel, you need to 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 Debian 11.

Now follow the steps below to complete this guide.

Install aaPanel on Debian 11

First, you need to update your local package index with the following command:

sudo apt update

Then, use the following command to download and install the aaPanel installer script:

wget -O install.sh http://www.aapanel.com/script/install-ubuntu_6.0_en.sh && bash install.sh

When your installation is completed, you will get the following output:

release the following port (7800|888|80|443|20|21) in the security group
==================================================================
Time consumed: 1 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

Also, you can confirm if port 7800 is allowed through the firewall if the firewall is active:

sudo ufw status
Output
Status: active
