Install Froxlor on CentOS 7

In this tutorial we’ll learn how to install Froxlor on CentOS 7. We will also install and configure its prerequisites. Froxlor is a host management panel used to handle multiple-users services. It may be employed to control domain solutions, email accounts or internet server etc. It is a good choice of Cpanel or Webmin.

I recommend to use a minimal CentOS server setup as a basis for the tutorial, that can be a virtual or a root server image with an CentOS 7 minimal install from a web hosting company or you use our minimal server tutorial to install a server from scratch.

Install Froxlor on CentOS 7

Step 1. First, ensure your system is fully up-to-date by running the following:

yum -y update

Step 2. Installing LAMP on CentOS 7.

You should check out this LAMP stack install tutorial for CentOS 7, if you haven’t installed LAMP yet. Then install PHP and a few extensions that Froxlor requires:

yum install php70w php70w-dom php70w-mbstring php70w-gd php70w-pdo php70w-json php70w-xml php70w-zip php70w-curl php70w-mcrypt php70w-pear

Step 3. Installing Froxlor.

Download the latest stable release of Froxlor, unzip the archive to the web root directory:

cd /var/www/html
sudo wget
sudo tar -zxvf froxlor-latest.tar.gz

Assign the proper file/directories ownership for Froxlor:

sudo chown -R apache:apache /var/www/html/froxlor

Step 4. Configure Database for Froxlor.

Next, we need to create a database for the Froxlor installation:

mysql -uroot -p

Run the following command to create a database for Froxlor:

create database froxlor;
create user froxlor@localhost identified by 'mein_passwort';
grant all privileges on froxlor.* to froxlor@localhost;
flush privileges;

Step 5. Accessing Froxlor Web Installation.

Now go to your Froxlor URL in your web browser http://your.IP.address/froxlor/ or to continue your Froxlor installation.

Congratulation’s! You have successfully install and configure Froxlor on your CentOS 7 server. Thanks for using this tutorial installing Froxlor server management panel  on CentOS 7 system.
