CloudPanel v1 is obsolete; check out the CloudPanel v2 Docs.

On this page, we explain step by step how to setup Neos 7 with CloudPanel.


In the following example we will setup Neos under the domain


Before we can start with the installation, we need to create an SSH User, a Database, and a Domain.

When you Add the Domain, make sure to select the Neos 7 Vhost Template and the right PHP Version.

Document Root

Make sure to point the Document Root to the Web directory.


To install Neos do the following steps:

  1. Login via SSH to the server e.g. with john-ssh and go htdocs directory:
cd /home/cloudpanel/htdocs/
  1. Delete the project directory which has been created by CloudPanel:
rm -rf /home/cloudpanel/htdocs/
  1. Install via composer:
php7.4 /usr/local/bin/composer create-project neos/neos-base-distribution:~7
  1. Reset permissions.
cd /home/cloudpanel/htdocs/
clpctl system:permissions:reset 775
  1. Open your domain in the browser and start the setup process:

Enter the Setup Password to start the installation process.

The Setup Password can be displayed with the following command:

cat /home/cloudpanel/htdocs/
  1. Go through all setup steps to finish the installation.
  1. Done! Neos is now installed.
