curl -sS -o; \echo "85762db0edc00ce19a2cd5496d1627903e6198ad850bbbdefb2ceaa46bd20cbd" | \sha256sum -c && sudo CLOUD=do bash

Access CloudPanel#


For security reasons, access CloudPanel as fast as possible to create the admin user. There is a small time window where bots can create the user. It's highly recommended to open port 8443 only for your IP via firewall.

You can now access CloudPanel via Browser: https://yourIpAddress:8443

Ignore the self-signed certificate warning and click on Advanced and Proceed to continue to CloudPanel.
