There are also several control panels on the market.

Install WordPress on CyberPanel
First, let’s get acquainted with the cyber panel control panel and see what advantages this system really 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 better manage the work processes of the system. After using the control panel, we use the hosts so that we can do things more easily and with more restrictions for different user roles. There are many control panels on the market, the most popular of which 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 that you can use for free on your Linux server. By installing this control panel and using OpenLiteSpeed, you can set up your site on a computer or Linux server at no cost. All you need is regular electricity and high-speed internet.
So if your host uses the Cyber Panel control panel, you should definitely know that your host is using the OpenSpeed webserver (the free and open-source version of LightSpeed).
If you want to install your website hosting control panel yourself and you have doubts about between CPanel and cyber-panel, 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 Mihanwordpress:

Start installing wordpress on CyberPanel
If all goes well, you will be taken to the WordPress installation page by entering your website URL. In this step, we need to install WordPress.
First, select the language you want, if necessary. Then, click on Let’s go.
On this page, we are asked for database information and we have to enter the information. In Webmin, the process of building a database is different from other control panels. You should ask the server administrator to create the database for you. But by default, when you build your hosts on the server, a database is created with your username. So we enter the values like this:
- Database name: Your hostname, for example: heseto
- Username: The username of your host. For example: heseto
- Password: Login password for your hosting panel
If the above information did not work. You should ask your server administrator to create a database for you through CyberPanel.
In the last step, you have to click on install.
In this step, we enter the site information and WordPress management information.
Now the WordPress installation on CyberPanel is complete and you have launched your first WordPress website. Congratulations and good luck to you. 🙂
