Beginning of work. Initial ISP configuration

If you are still in doubt about choosing a control panel for your VPS server, you can test the demo version of ISPmanager on the official website.

Installing ISPmanager

ISPmanager Lite is installed automatically if you order it when renting a VPS server with Linux OS.

You can also install ISPmanager manually.

Authorization in the ISPmanager panel

  1. To enter the panel, enter in the address bar of the browser:
  2. When you first enter the panel, the browser will inform you that the connection is insecure. This is due to the fact that the connection is made over the secure https protocol and the certificate has not been signed by a certification authority.
  3. Add this address to the exceptions of your browser to enter the panel.
  4. If you ordered a panel with a license, it will be activated automatically. When ordering a panel without a license, you must activate your own license before authorization (an activation window will open upon entering).

When authorizing, specify the login and password to access the server, which were sent to your email. Also, in the authorization window, specify the appropriate interface language.  


4. Read and accept the terms of the license agreement.

ISPmanager initial configuration

It is recommended to configure the basic parameters before using the panel. You can also change the settings later in the Settings section.

  • Server name - enter the domain name.
  • Time Zone - set to Local Time.
  • Region, Location - it is desirable to indicate the real location for the correct time display.
  • Update software automatically - set the value to update all system packages to get the most current versions.

ISPmanager on CentOS

For ISPmanager to work correctly on a VPS server with CentOS operating system, switch the Apache operating mode:

  1. Go to the Settings - Features section.
  2. Highlight the Web server (WWW) and open it by double-clicking it or click Edit:
  3. In the new window, select Apache MPM-ITK.
  4. Click the Apply changes button.
