In this tutorial we’ll learn how to install Froxlor on Ubuntu 16.04. 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 Ubuntu server setup as a basis for the tutorial, that can be a virtual or a root server image with an Ubuntu 16.04 minimal install from a web hosting company or you use our minimal server tutorial to install a server from scratch.
Install Froxlor on Ubuntu 16.04
Step 1. First, ensure your system and apt package lists are fully up-to-date by running the following:
apt-get update -y apt-get upgrade -y
Step 2. Installing LAMP on Ubuntu 16.04.
You should check out this LAMP stack install tutorial for Ubuntu 16.04, if you haven’t installed LAMP yet. Then install PHP and a few extensions that Froxlor requires:
apt-get install php7.0-mysql php7.0-curl php7.0-json php7.0-cgi php7.0 libapache2-mod-php7.0 php7.0-mcrypt php7.0-gd php7.0-mbstring php7.0-zip php7.0-dom php7.0-xml
Step 3. Installing Froxlor.
Run the following command to install the Froxlor package:
cd /var/www/ rm -r html wget https://files.froxlor.org/releases/froxlor-latest.tar.gz
And extract it:
tar -zxvf froxlor-latest.tar.gz
Then you rename the newly created directory:
mv froxlor html rm -r froxlor-latest.tar.gz
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; exit;
Step 5. Accessing Froxlor Web Installation.
Now you can access the Froxlor web install wizard in your browser by entering the domain name or http://your_ip/ to continue your Froxlor installation.
