You can install the OS on Vesta CP as: CentOS 5, CentOS 6, Ubuntu LTS, Ubuntu 13:04, 13:10 Ubuntu, Debian 7, RHEL 5, RHEL 6.

When using Vesta CP, you will automatically install all the packages needed to be able to manage and use the VPS immediately. For example, Web Server, DNS Server, Database Server, Mail Server, FTP Server. If you do not use can be one of them, turned off it to save resources VPS.

A further feature of Vesta CP is use 2 simultaneous web servers: nginx and apache, nginx as frontend webserver which is also apache webserver application. This model will help optimize server more efficient than installing one webserver.

Vesta Control Panel Settings

First, you need to have the following conditions:

- VPS/server 512MB RAM or higher.

- VPS has built one of the following Linux operating systems such as CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu. It's required to install CentOS for best support.

You can use following commands to install Vesta Control Panel:

1. Download script
Code:
curl -O http://vestacp.com/pub/vst-install.sh
2. Run the script
Code:
bash vst-install.sh

At this point, you should note the following info:
Do you want to PROCEED? [Y / n]): y
Please enter valid email address: your_real_email
Please enter the hostname : Your_hostname

Installation will take about 15 minutes ...
Note: When the program asks you to "Please enter valid email address" then you need to correctly enter your real email address, as this will be the email address that sent Vesta login to the management page of Vesta and other notices on your system.

Now you just need to wait because everything had been done automatically, usually takes about 5 minutes (depending on your VPS) to complete the installation.

When the installation is complete, you will receive the following message:

https: //your-ip-address:8083
username: admin
password: admin_password

Congratulations,
you have successfully installed Vesta Control Panel.

Thanks for the tutorial, Vesta CP is a good free panel to start using a VPS.
But for beginners, I will recommend to use apache because Nginx is more powerful but also harder to manage.

You should also add a link to the advanced install setup tools in the front page, as most of users will not need all the features.

This is a little bit off-topic but there's a plugin called Engintron which you can use to install Nginx as a reverse proxy. It's really easy to install using cPanel.

In the bottom of the homepage there is the advanced install settings. You just have to choose what you want to install and by pressing "Generate install command" button you will get the command line to run after downloading the script using :
# Connect to your server as root via SSH
ssh [email protected]
# Download installation script
curl -O http://vestacp.com/pub/vst-install.sh

# Choose what you want to install

# Run the generate command

For beginner I will recommend to use apache + proftpd and mysql, the firewall is a good option but I haven't setup it with Vesta CP yet.
If you want more performance, nginx + apache is a really good options. But you will have to read some documentations because apache will not handle the static files and it cause error.
