sentora installation

Click here to find recommended cheap VPS.

Sentora is the successor of zPanel. The last CentOS version zPanel supports is CentOS 6.6 so if you try to install zPanel on CentOS 6.7,  it will give the following error:

Sorry, this installer only supports the installation of ZPanel on CentOS 6.x.

Now you should consider installing Sentora instead of zPanel:

1. cd(enter your home directory /root/)

2. bash <(curl -L -Ss http://sentora.org/install)
