During the installation process, you will be prompted to choose between two options: “Install CyberPanel with OpenLiteSpeed” or “Install CyberPanel with LiteSpeed Enterprise.” Select the first option for a free, open-source version:

Step 4: Set Up CyberPanel Admin Credentials
The installer will then prompt you to create a CyberPanel admin password. Input your desired credentials, and remember to store them safely for future reference:

randomly generate one (recommended) or
specify the admin password?
Choose [d]fault, [r]andom or [s]et password: [d/r/s]
Choose the default password, a random password, or set your own password by typing D, or R, or S. Then type ENTER.
Step 5: Complete Installation
After entering your credentials, the installation process will begin. This may take some time, so be patient. Once the installation is complete, you will see the following message:
