Can I uninstall CentOS Web Panel?

Unfortunately there is no official way to uninstall CentOS Web Panel. Other web hosting panels (like DirectAdmin, VestaCP) have uninstallers but CWP doesn’t have one.

The official site states:

CWP has no uninstaller, since you are installing it on the clean “CentOS 6 minimal version” it completely modifies your system and installs tons of packages.

The only way to remove CWP is to reinstall your server to the original state, like you had it before cwp installation.

So, the best way is to reinstall your operating system.

How to install CentOS Web Panel

CentOS Web Panel is a free web hosting control panel. It has more and more users in the last period. In this post we will guide you through the installation process on CentOS 7.

You can check the CentOS Web Panel system requirements at http://centos-webpanel.com/system-requirements

Steps to install CentOS Web Panel:

  1. Connect to your server as root :
    ssh root@your.server
  2. Probably you already know if your operation system is compatible with CentOS Web Panel. Anyway, you can get your OS info with:
    [root@cwp ~]# uname -a
    Linux cwp.plothost.com 2.6.32-042stab127.2 #1 SMP Thu Jan 4 16:41:44 MSK 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    

    and the command (on RedHat/CentOS):

    [root@cwp ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
    CentOS Linux release 7.2.1511 (Core)
    
  3. Now we have to download the installation script. Use the commands:
    [root@cwp /]# cd /usr/local/src
    [root@cwp src]# wget http://centos-webpanel.com/cwp-el7-latest
    

    The output is:

    [root@cwp /]# cd /usr/local/src
    [root@cwp src]# wget http://centos-webpanel.com/cwp-el7-latest

    [root@cwp src]#
    
  4. Now start the installation with the command sh cwp-el7-latest
    [root@cwp src]# sh cwp-el7-latest
    

    Here is the capture of our installation process: CentOS Web Panel Installation. At the end you will see:
