How to Setup WordPress Website with CyberPanel and Vultr VPS

Reserved for Updates & Changes

Important: At 10:24 in video select php version 7.3 or 7.4 or 8.0. I faced some error randomly when selected 8.1 during testing.

Error will be 403/404 error. In log it will shows as php suffix not permitted. To fix it you can go to manage website and change php version then in cyberpanel php (main option sidebar) select php version and restart. Wait few minutes your site should start working.

If still your issue is not fixed you will have to website section in cyberpanel and delete that website (all site related data will be deleted). Then re-create website with different version that selected earlier – create NS records as shown at 13:15 in video. Finally again install wordpress.

Ask vultr support to open port 25. Make sure to not send mass marketing emails from vps use it only for transactional emails.
