Vesta Control Panel on Ubuntu 14.04

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Vesta Control Panel on Ubuntu 14.04. For those of you who didn’t know, VestaCP is an open-source hosting control panel that currently supports both RHEL flavored Linux releases (Red Hat, CentOS) and Ubuntu. It packs a bunch of features by default to allow you to host and manage your websites with ease on your Virtual Private Server.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple. I will show you the step-by-step installation of VestaCP in the Ubuntu 14.04 server.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Ubuntu 14.04, and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.
