Introduction of TinyCP

TinyCP is one of the control panel applications available to you. It is a lightweight web-based control panel that can be used to perform multiple administrative functions. With TinyCP you can manage the software packages on your system, run various web applications, set up file-sharing servers, manage emails, databases, and much more.

Currently, TinyCP is available for Ubuntu and Debian users only. If you use either of these and wonder how to set up and use TinyCP as your primary system control panel, you have come to the right place as we will explain everything from installing to performing some basic functions of TinyCP 2.0, in addition to the facility to create user access to FTP (File Transfer Protocol).


A server with Ubuntu Server installed and root access.

Before You Begin #

I’m recommending you need to have a Linode account and create an instance like Ubuntu 20.04 LTS or Debian, in the tutorial I’m going with Ubuntu 20.04  LTS, see our video guide:

Step 1 – Preparing the server and Installing TinyCP

First, access the Ubuntu server with a user with root permission.

Before installing TinyCP, it is recommended to update the Ubuntu packages.

					sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y

The stable version of the TinyCP project will now be installed.

1. You need to install some packages first, so run the command:

					sudo apt install gnupg ca-certificates 

2.Add the TinyCP package to your repository, run the commands:

					sudo apt-key adv --fetch-keys 
sudo echo "deb all main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/tinycp.list 

3. After performing the previous steps, update your packages, run the command:

					sudo apt-get update

4. Installing the TinyCP project, run the command:

					sudo apt-get install tinycp 

5. When installing, ask if you want to continue with the installation.

					Do you want to continue? [Y/n] Y

6. After this the text TinyCP successfully installed will be shown. You can then create the panel access password:

					Type TinyCP admin password:

The expected result is this:


Step 2 - Accessing Panel

In the last step, the URL of access to the panel with the access credentials was shown. Access the URL through your browser and enter the Login and Password, and press the “Sign In” button.



By Following steps 1 to 2, the installation of TinyCP was successful. Now you can use the simple control panel TinyCP.
