Based on the web host, management control panel, there are several ways to install WordPress on a host. The installation method varies greatly depending on each control panel. There are also several control panels on the market, especially open-source control panels. One of these free control panels is Cyber Panel, which is being developed with the LiteSpeed team. So in this article, we will discuss how to install WordPress on CyberPanel.
Install WordPress on CyberPanel
First, let’s get acquainted with the cyber panel control panel and see what advantages this system has over the CPanel?
What is CyberPanel
As you know, control panels are just like the operating system that we install on our computer to manage the work processes of the system better. After using the control panel, we use the hosts to do things more efficiently and with more restrictions for different user roles. There are many control panels on the market; the most popular control panels are CPanel and DirectAdmin. We have already taught you how to install WordPress on CPanel and install WordPress in Direct Admin. But now we are going to move to newer and more up-to-date control panels.
Cyber Panel is one of the open-source control panels you can use for free on your Linux server. By installing this control panel and using OpenLiteSpeed, you can set up your website on a computer or Linux server at no cost. All you need is regular power and high-speed internet.
So if your host uses the Cyber Panel control panel, you should know that your host is using the OpenLiteSpeed web server (the free and open-source version of LightSpeed).
Suppose you want to install your website hosting control panel yourself and have doubts about CPanel and cyber-panel. In that case, you should examine these two more closely or ask the opinion of people who have been specializing in WordPress and web hosting for many years. We asked this question to Reza Hoseini Rad, the webmaster of Mihan WordPress:
