CloudPanel v1 is obsolete

CloudPanel v1 is obsolete; check out the CloudPanel v2 Docs.


The right Vhost Template for your Application is essential. For managing the CloudPanel Vhost Templates we are using GitHub. Vhost Templates for all popular PHP Applications can be found there.

Adding an Application

The Vhost Templates are organized within Applications. The Vhost Template for newer application versions may be different than for an older one.

To add a new Application do the following steps:

1) Login into the CloudPanel as User with admin rights.

2) Go to the Admin Area by clicking on Admin Area top right.

3) In the left menu, click on Vhost Templates and click on the button Add Application.

Enter the Application Name and click on the button Add New Application to save.

Deleting an Application

On the Vhost Templates overview site, you can delete an Application by clicking on the button Delete.
