by Sandeep B.

In this tutorial we’ll going to install CyberPanel which have OpenLiteSpeed as webserver, if you’re willing to host WordPress site go for this panel but it also have some limitations if we compare with nginx and apache webservers. I’ll still recommend you to use free panel like CWP and VestaCP which are more stable.
