How to install CloudLinux?

Converting CentOS to a CloudLinux system is really easy.

First you need to purchase a CloudLinux license from either CloudLinux or an authorized distributer. I suggest BuycPanel

Once you have a CloudLinux license, you need to simply run the installation command with root access from an SSH session.

The command you will run will depend on the license type you have.

If it is an IP address based license:

wget;sh cldeploy -i

Or if you have an activation key:

wget;sh cldeploy -k <activation_key>

(Replace <activation_key> with your actual license activation key)

Once it has finished running, you will be required to reboot. From your SSH session, run:


The system should then reboot into the CloudLinux kernel.
